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 both devices are turned on and unlocked.
Step 2: Trust Your Computer
After connecting your iPhone, a message will appear on your phone asking if you trust this computer. Tap “Trust” to proceed.
Step 3: Open iTunes (if needed)
If iTunes doesn’t automatically open when you connect your iPhone, manually launch the application on your computer.
Step 4: Select Your Device in iTunes
In iTunes, you should see an icon representing your iPhone. Click on it to select your device.
Step 5: Go to the Photos Tab
In the left sidebar of iTunes, click on the “Photos” tab. This will open the photo syncing options for your device.
Option 1: Sync All Photos and Albums
If you want to transfer all the photos and albums from your iPhone to your computer, check the box next to “Sync Photos.”
- Select Folder: Choose a folder on your computer where the photos will be saved. You can create a new folder specifically for these photos if desired.
- Select All: Check the box next to “All folders” or “Selected folders” depending on your preference.
- Apply: Click on the “Apply” button to start syncing and transferring the photos to your computer.
Option 2: Sync Selected Albums

- Select Albums: Check the box next to “Selected albums” and choose the albums you want to transfer.
- Apply: Click on the “Apply” button to start syncing and transferring the selected albums to your computer.
Step 6: Wait for the Transfer to Complete
The time it takes for the transfer to complete depends on the number of photos being synced. Be patient, and don’t disconnect your iPhone until the process is finished.
