There is no AirDrop-like utility to sync data between Windows PC and iPhone. If you don’t want to use iTunes, you are highly suggested to use EaseUS MobiMover Free to transfer files from PC to iPhone without overwriting any existing data, such as photos here, contacts, notes, books, Safari bookmarks, videos, and music. Now, let’s see how to use MobiMover Free to transfer photos from the computer in Windows 7/8/10 to iPhone in iOS 8 or later, including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X in iOS 11. 

1. Download and install EaseUS MobiMover on your PC by clicking the download button below. Please also install iTunes on your PC for iPhone data reading, which is essential for a third-party iPhone manager. 

2. Connect your iPhone 8/8 Plus to the PC with a compatible USB cable and tap "Trust This Computer" on the device screen if a pop-up asks. Launch EaseUS MobiMover and go to the main interface. Click "Transfer to This Device" to transfer photos from PC to iPhone 8 "By folder" or "By file".
