How to transfer photos from iPhone 8/8 Plus to PC running Windows 10/8.1/8/7 in 3 ways

Tip 1: Transfer photos from iPhone 8/8 Plus to computer with MobiMover (FREE)

As an iOS data transfer tool, MobiMover can help you transfer files between iOS devices (iPhone/iPad) and computer or between two iOS devices. The files you can transfer include photos, movies, home videos, TV shows, photo videos, music, ringtones, audiobook, contacts, messages and more, depending on the feature you'd like to use. And the photos you can transfer to your PC including photos from Camera Roll, Photo Stream, and Photo Library. Besides, MobiMover can also work as a free iPhone content manager to help you manage your iOS content from computer. Sounds great, right? Follow the steps below to learn how to transfer photos from iPhone 8 to PC with MobiMover.

Step 1: Download and install MobiMover Free (less than 30MB) to your PC running Windows 10/8.1/8/7. As you may know, it's necessary for you to install iTunes on your PC to help MobiMover access the data on your iPhone 8, which is inevitable for third-party software users.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone 8 to your PC with a USB cable and open MobiMover. When a pop-up appears on your iPhone screen asking you whether to trust this computer or not, tap on Trust to continue.

Step 3: You can transfer photos from iPhone 8 to computer in two ways. One is to use Transfer to Computer feature, the other is to use Custom. The former way is set as an example in this blog post. Tap on Transfer to Computer and wait for your iPhone data to be loaded. When it's finished, MobiMover will automatically select all the detected items on your iPhone 8 as shown below. (Under Custom, you can not only transfer data but also manage iOS data by doing things like deleting all contacts on iPhone 7 at once. )

Tip 2: Transfer photos from iPhone 8/8 Plus to PC via iCloud

With the help of iCloud, you can also transfer photos from your iPhone 8/8 Plus to computer. To use iCloud, you first need to make sure that you have turned on iCloud Photo Library (Settings > [your name] > iCloud > Photos) on your iPhone and connect your iPhone to a stable Wi-Fi network. Then do as the steps shown below to copy your iPhone photos from iCloud to your computer.

If you haven't installed iCloud on your Windows PC:

Step 1. Go to visit iCloud.com from your PC.

Step 2. Enter your Apple ID to sign in to iCloud.

Step 3. Choose Photos and then you will see the photos you have synced from your iPhone to iCloud.

Step 4: Select the items you'd like to transfer and then click the Download Selected items icon at the top right corner of your screen.

If you have installed iCloud on your PC:

Step 1. Go to iCloud settings and click the checkbox next to Photos.

Step 2. Choose Options next to Photos and click the checkbox next to iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Photo Sharing.

Step 3. Click Done and then tap on Apply to confirm your settings.

Step 4. Click the iCloud icon in your computer taskbar, choose Download Photos and then wait for your iCloud photos to be downloaded to your PC.

As you can see, using iCloud is a roundabout method to transfer your iPhone photos to PC. If you want to import photos from your iPhone to computer quickly with ease, use MobiMover instead.
