0 Views 0 min read

When it comes to transferring files from an iPhone to a Windows 11 PC, the simplest situation could be transferring photos, which can be done only using a USB cable. For other types of files, like music, ringtones, books, contacts, or documents, it is relatively difficult but still isn't a tough task to finish. No matter which type of file you are looking to transfer, you will find the corresponding solution from the details below.

How to Transfer Photos and Videos from iPhone to PC in Windows 11

If what you want to copy are photos and videos, there is no way that is easier than using a USB cable. By connecting your iPhone to the Windows computer with a USB cable, Windows can get access to your iPhone's DCIM folder which contains the photos and videos on the iOS device. Afterward, you can either use File Explorer or the Photos app to transfer your iPhone photos to Windows 11.

To import photos from an iPhone to a PC in Windows 10:

Step 1. Connect the iPhone and the PC with a USB cable.

Step 2. Unlock your iPhone and click "Allow" in the prompt asking for your permission.

Step 3. Copy photos from the iOS device to Windows:

File Explorer: Go to "File Explorer" > "This PC" > "Apple iPhone" > "Internal Storage" > "DCIM" and copy these folders that contain your iPhone photos and videos to the computer.
