Are you tired of running out of storage space on your iPhone? Do you have precious videos that you want to transfer to your Mac for safekeeping or editing?

Look no further! In this tutorial, we will guide you step by step on how to transfer videos from your iPhone to your Mac. Let’s get started!

Using the Photos App

If you have a Mac running macOS Catalina or later, you can easily transfer videos from your iPhone using the built-in Photos app. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac using a USB cable.
  2. Unlock your iPhone and trust the computer if prompted.
  3. Open the Photos app on your Mac. You can find it in the Applications folder or by searching for “Photos” in Spotlight.
  4. Select your iPhone from the sidebar under the “Devices” section.
  5. Navigate to the “Import” tab at the top of the window.
  6. Select the videos you want to transfer or click “Import All New Videos” to transfer all recent videos.
  7. Click “Import Selected” or “Import All” to start transferring the videos to your Mac.

This method is not only quick and easy but also allows you to organize and edit your videos directly in the Photos app on your Mac. Now let’s explore an alternative method for transferring videos using Finder.

Using Finder

If you are using an older version of macOS or prefer using Finder, follow these steps:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac using a USB cable.
  2. Open a new Finder window on your Mac.
  3. Select your iPhone under the “Locations” section in the sidebar.
  4. Navigate to the “Files” tab in the top toolbar of the Finder window.
  5. Select “Image Capture” from the dropdown menu.
  6. Select the videos you want to transfer or click “Import All” to transfer all videos.
  7. Choose a destination folder on your Mac to save the videos.
  8. Click “Import” to start transferring the videos from your iPhone to your Mac.

The Finder method gives you more control over where you save your videos but lacks some of the organization and editing features available in Photos. Choose the method that suits your needs best!

In Conclusion

In this tutorial, we explored two methods for transferring videos from an iPhone to a Mac. Whether you prefer using the built-in Photos app or Finder, both methods are simple and efficient.

Now you can free up space on your iPhone and keep your precious videos safe on your Mac. Happy video transferring!
