0 Views 0 min read

Photo transfer happens every day between various devices. It's relatively easy to transfer photos from iPad to iPhone or transfer photos from iPad to Mac, or in other words, between two Apple devices.

Why? That's because there are many built-in features or apps on your devices that make it simple to share photos and videos across your iOS, iPadOS, or macOS devices. Moreover, there are also third-party tools that aim to transfer photos, videos, music, and more to or from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod more effectively.

Although there are multiple ways to send photos from iPad to iPhone, the best way for you varies in different situations. Check all workable ways in detail and apply one of them to get photos from iPad to iPhone within seconds.

When it comes to transferring photos between an iPad and an iPhone, you can choose to transfer pictures all at once or selectively. You can also transfer other supported file types, like videos, music, ringtones, contacts, and books, together with the photos.

To transfer pictures from iPad to iPhone:

  • View, edit, add or delete items on an iPhone, iPad, or iPad touch from a computer
  • Back up iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to a computer or an external storage device
  • Transfer, back up, and restore WhatsApp messages and attachments
  • Thus, when you want to back up iPhone to external hard drive or transfer WhatsApp messages from one iPhone to another, you can also use EaseUS MobiMover to get things done.

How to Transfer Photos from iPad to iPhone Using iCloud

If both devices are using the same Apple ID, then the best way for you to get photos from iPad to iPhone is undoubtedly using iCloud. With the help of iCloud, you can sync photos, videos, contacts, notes, and more across your devices that use the same Apple ID, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and even PC. Thus, you can also transfer photos from PC to iPhone using iCloud.

However, convenient as it is, there are also flaws while using iCloud. iCloud works by syncing, which means it will sync all photos and videos from iPad to iPhone and there is no chance for you to share specific photos. Besides, the photos you delete from one device will also be removed from another.

All in all, iCloud is a good choice if you want to transfer all photos from iPad to iPhone wirelessly.

To transfer photos from iPad to iPhone using iCloud:

Step 1. Go to the Settings app on your iPad and tap [your name].

Step 2. Go to "iCloud" > "Photos" and toggle on "iCloud Photos."

Step 3. Choose "Optimize [device] Storage" or "Download and Keep Originals" according to your need.

Step 4. Repeat these steps on your iPhone and wait for the data syncing process to finish.

If iCloud photos are not syncing, you need to solve the problem and then continue.

Toggle on iCoud Photos on iPhone

Other than iCloud, there are many other cloud-based services that will help to transfer pictures from iPad to iPhone, like Google Photos and Dropbox. If you happen to use one of these utilities, you can also use it to sync photos from iPad to iPhone or vice versa.

How to Send Photos from iPad to iPhone via AirDrop

If you are looking for a wireless solution that allows you to get photos from iPad to iPhone selectively, then AirDrop will fulfill your need well.

AirDrop is a file-sharing service on Apple devices. It enables you to share photos, videos, contacts, websites, locations, and more between two AirDrop-supported devices over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. That means as long as these devices are within the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth range, you can transfer photos from iPad to iPhone wirelessly.

To send photos from iPad to iPhone via AirDrop:

Step 1. Turn on AirDrop on both devices.

Step 2. Go to the Photos app and select the items you want to transfer.

Step 3. Tap the "Share" icon and choose "AirDrop."

Step 4. Select the target iPhone to start transferring photos from iPad to iPhone.
