Are you tired of cluttering your iPhone with hundreds of photos? Do you wish to transfer your precious memories from your iPhone to your Mac for safekeeping or editing?

Well, look no further! In this tutorial, I will guide you step by step on how to save photos from your iPhone to your Mac. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone to Your Mac

The first thing you need to do is connect your iPhone to your Mac using a lightning cable. Once connected, make sure to unlock your iPhone and tap “Trust” on the prompt that appears on the screen.

Step 2: Launch the Photos App

Launch the Photos app on your Mac. You can find it in the Applications folder or by searching for it using Spotlight.

Step 3: Importing Photos

To import photos from your iPhone, click on the “Import” tab located at the top of the Photos app window. You can also press Command + Shift + I as a shortcut.

Option 1: Import All New Photos

If you want to import all new photos from your iPhone, simply click on “Import All New Items”. The Photos app will automatically detect and import all new photos since the last import.

Option 2: Selective Import

If you prefer to selectively import specific photos, click on each photo thumbnail that you want to import. A blue checkmark will appear on selected photos. Once you’ve made your selection, click on “Import X Selected” (X represents the number of selected photos).

Step 4: Organizing Imported Photos

After importing, you can choose to organize your photos into albums or keep them in the default “Photos” library. To create a new album, click on the “+” button located at the top-left corner of the Photos app window. Give your album a name, select the imported photos, and click on “OK”.

Step 5: Ejecting Your iPhone

Once you have successfully imported your desired photos, it’s important to safely disconnect your iPhone from your Mac. To do this, click on the eject icon next to your iPhone’s name in the sidebar of the Photos app.

Conclusion

Now that you know how to save photos from your iPhone to your Mac, you can easily free up storage space on your device and keep your precious memories safe.
