Are you tired of having all your precious iPhone photos stuck on your device? Do you want to transfer them onto your PC for safekeeping or editing?

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the simple steps to get your iPhone photos onto your PC.

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone to Your PC

The first thing you need to do is connect your iPhone to your PC using a USB cable. Make sure both devices are turned on and unlocked.

Step 2: Trust the Computer

When you connect your iPhone to a new computer, it will prompt you with a Trust This Computer message. Tap on “Trust” to establish a secure connection between your iPhone and PC.

Step 3: Open File Explorer

On your PC, open File Explorer by clicking on the folder icon in the taskbar or by pressing Windows key + E on your keyboard.

Step 4: Access Your iPhone

In File Explorer, you should see a list of devices on the left-hand side. Look for your iPhone under the “This PC” section and click on it.

Step 5: Copy Photos

Once you open your iPhone in File Explorer, navigate to the “Internal Storage” or “DCIM” folder. These folders contain all the photos captured by your iPhone’s camera.

Select the photos you want to transfer by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on each photo. You can also select multiple consecutive photos by holding down the Shift key while clicking.


If you want to copy all the photos, press Ctrl + A to select all of them.

Step 6: Copy and Paste

After selecting the desired photos, right-click on any of the selected photos and choose “Copy”. Then, navigate to the destination folder on your PC where you want to save the photos.

Right-click inside the folder and select “Paste”. The selected photos will now start copying from your iPhone to your PC.

Step 7: Wait for the Transfer to Complete

The time it takes for the transfer to complete depends on the number and size of the photos. Be patient and avoid disconnecting your iPhone or interrupting the process until it finishes.

Step 8: Verify the Transfer

Once the transfer is complete, go to the destination folder on your PC where you pasted the photos. You should see all your iPhone photos neatly organized in that folder.


If you encounter any issues during this process, make sure you have iTunes installed on your PC. iTunes provides necessary drivers for establishing a connection between your iPhone and PC.

Congratulations! You have successfully transferred your iPhone photos onto your PC.

Now you can easily access, manage, or edit them as you please. Remember to regularly back up your photos to ensure they are safe even if something happens to your iPhone.
