If you want to transfer photos from an iPhone to an iPad, you will find effective solutions in this article. Here we have collected several ways to help you transfer pictures and photos from one iOS device to another.

Way 1. Transfer pictures from iPhone to iPad via “Photo Stream”

The first option allows you to set all photos to be synchronized on two devices.

  • Go to settings on your iPhone.
  • Scroll down and then find "Photos”.
  • Set the option "My Photo Stream" to On, so that all photos will be synchronized on all of your iCloud devices when connected to WLAN.
  • You must also make these settings on the iPad. The procedure is identical.
  • If both devices are linked with the same Apple ID, you do not need to make any more settings.

Way 2. Transfer pictures from iPhone to iPad via Photo Sharing

You can also use this method to easily transfer individual images.

  • On your iPhone enable "iCloud photo sharing": Settings > iCloud > Photos > iCloud photo sharing (under iOS 11, tap Settings > Account & Passwords > iCloud > Photos > iCloud Photo Sharing)
  • On iPhone, press Open Photos App > Select Photos > tap the "Share" button in the lower left corner > select "iCloud photo sharing".
  • On the iPad, enable iCloud Photo Sharing > Then on the iPad, select these photos under "Shared" and click "Save Image".

Way 3. Transfer pictures from iPhone to iPad via Airdrop

AirDrop allows you to share content from apps such as photos, Safari and contacts. Proceed as follows:

  • Select the pictures you want to share. Under iOS 10 and later you can also share links to apps via AirDrop. On the Home screen, simply press and hold the icon of the corresponding app.
