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.
