Part 1: How to transfer videos from iPhone to PC with MoibMover (Free Tip)

When it comes to free iPhone data transfer, a useful and recommended tool is MobiMover Free, which is designed to transfer photos, videos, music, contacts, messages and so on between iOS devices or between an iOS device and a computer (PC or Mac). With MobiMover, you can easily transfer videos from iPhone to PC running Windows 10/8.1/8/7. The steps below will show you how to import videos from iPhone to PC with MobiMover.

Other than being an iOS data transfer tool, EaseUS MobiMover can also serve as an iPhone/iPad file manager and video downloader, which helps to manage your iOS device content from computer or download videos from websites to your computer or iPhone/iPad. For example, you can delete iPhone photos from PC or download Vimeo videos to iPhone easily using this tool.

Download and install EaseUS MobiMover on your PC. To have your iPhone recognized by your PC, you will need to install iTunes on your computer, too. Any version of iTunes is OK. (The steps below shows you how to import movies, TV shows, and music videos from your iPhone to computer. If you intend to transfer the recorded videos, go to Picture > Album > Photo Video in step 2.)

Part 2: How to copy videos from iPhone to PC with iCloud Photo Library

With iCloud Photo Library on, you can access all your iPhone photos and videos (recorded ones) on your PC and download these items to your computer if you need to. Using iCloud is a recommended option if you want to get videos from iPhone to computer wirelessly. But what you need to know with this method is that you can't import specific items from your iPhone. Instead, all the photos and videos will be synced to iCloud at once. Thus, if you prefer to selectively transfer videos from your iPhone to PC, using EaseUS MobiMover Free is a better choice for you. Make sure your devices are connected to Wi-Fi, then follow the guide below to transfer your iPhone videos to PC via iCloud.

Step 1: On your iPhone, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > Photos and turn on iCloud Photo Library.

Step 2: On your PC, download and install iCloud for Windows on your PC and sign in with the Apple ID you are using on your iPhone.

Step 3: Click Options next to Photos and select iCloud Photo Library. Then you will see the other two options (Download new photos and videos to my PC and Upload new photos and videos from my PC) will be selected automatically.

Step 4: Tap Done, and then click Apply. (You can go to This PC > iCloud Photos > Downloads to access all the new photos from videos from your iPhone.)

If you don't want to install iCloud on your PC, you can also get your iPhone videos to computer via iCloud, which is to turn on iCloud Photo Library on your mobile device, visit iCloud.com from your PC, then download iCloud videos to your computer refering to the guide on how to download iCloud photos to PC.

The final words

Let's simply compare these methods here.

Compared to the other four methods, method 1 provides you with more freedom in selecting the video type you'd like to transfer, whether they are recorded videos, TV shows, movies, or music videos and is more convenient for you to choose specific items to copy. Method 2, however, is suitable for syncing your iPhone videos to the computer wirelessly. When you use it, you need to pay attention to your iCloud storage more closely. While the other three methods are a better choice if you prefer to import all your iPhone photos and videos to your PC. Carry out the method best suited to your needs.
