Then, your photos will be automatically synced to your iPhone. The iCloud app can help you achieve the same goal if you've previously installed this app on your PC.

To use iCloud to transfer pictures from PC to iPhone, make sure you have enough free space to store the photos to be transferred, or you may encounter issues like iCloud photos not syncing.

To wirelessly transfer photos to iPhone without iTunes:

Step 1. Upload photos from the computer to iCloud.

  • If you have installed iCloud for Windows, enable "Photos" > "iCloud Photo Library" via iCloud settings and copy the photos you want to transfer to the folder you set to upload pictures from.
  • If you don't have an iCloud Control Panel, go to iCloud.com, sign in with the Apple ID you use on the target iPhone, choose "Photos," and upload the pictures you'd like to send to iCloud.

Step 2. Turn on "iCloud Photos" on your iPhone by going to "Settings" > [your name] > "iCloud" > "Photos".

Step 3. Go to the Photos app on your iPhone and see the photos from your computer. Download the items you want to transfer to your iPhone according to your needs.

Method 4. Copy Photos from PC to iPhone Using Google Photos

iCloud, although being better integrated with Apple devices, offers limited free space (5GB) for you to store files. That's far from enough for users with a vast collection of photos and videos. Many of you may prefer a service that provides free and unlimited storage. And that's exactly what Google Photos does.

As indicated in its name, Google Photos is a photo-oriented storage service developed by Google. Unlike iCloud, which gives you limited free storage, Google Photos allows you to store photos unlimitedly.

To transfer photos from PC to iPhone:

Step 1. Go to Google Photos and sign in with your Google account.

Step 2. Click "Upload" > "Computer" to upload the pictures you want to transfer to the cloud storage.

Step 3. Download Google Photos on your iPhone. Sign in with the account you use on the computer.

Step 4. Go to the "Photos" tab and see the pictures from your computer.

Similar to iCloud, OneDrive offers 5GB of free storage for its users. If you are an Office 365 subscriber, you can enjoy up to 1TB of free OneDrive storage.
