Are you tired of running out of space on your iPhone because of all the photos you’ve taken? Don’t worry, transferring pictures from your iPhone to your computer is easier than you might think.

In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process step by step. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone to Your Computer

The first thing you need to do is connect your iPhone to your computer using a USB cable. Make sure your computer recognizes the device and establishes a connection. Once connected, you’re ready to move on to the next step.

Step 2: Access Your iPhone’s Photos

To access your iPhone’s photos, open a file explorer window on your computer and navigate to “My Computer” or “This PC”. Look for your iPhone under the “Devices and Drives” section.

Click on it to open it.

If prompted, unlock your iPhone and tap “Trust This Computer” on the pop-up message that appears. This allows your computer to access your device’s data.

Step 3: Copy Photos From Your iPhone

Once you’ve accessed your iPhone’s files on your computer, look for a folder named “DCIM”. This folder contains all of the photos stored on your device.

  • Select the photos you want to transfer by clicking and dragging over them or holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on individual photos.
  • After selecting the desired photos, right-click on one of them and choose “Copy”.
  • Navigate to the location on your computer where you want to save these pictures.
  • Right-click on the destination folder and select “Paste”.

Step 4: Wait for the Transfer to Complete

Depending on the number and size of the photos, the transfer process may take a few minutes. It’s important to wait until all of the pictures have been copied successfully before disconnecting your iPhone from your computer.

Step 5: Verify Your Photos

To ensure that the transfer was successful, open the destination folder on your computer where you pasted the photos. Check if all of your selected pictures are there.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully transferred your photos from your iPhone to your computer.


  • If you want to transfer all of your iPhone’s photos at once, press Ctrl + A to select everything in the “DCIM” folder.
  • Make sure you have enough free space on your computer’s hard drive before starting the transfer process.

That’s it! Now you can free up space on your iPhone by safely transferring your precious memories to your computer.
