Why Transfer Files from iPhone to Computer
Anyone can add to this list. It all depends on the personal preferences of the user, but the fact remains: many people really need to transfer files from iPhone to computer.
Because the iPhone’s operating system is proprietary, not everyone is able to transfer data seamlessly. In addition, the transfer methods differ markedly depending on the operating system of the computer. Windows requires some action, MacOS requires others.
This is the main option to be considered first. Apple itself recommends using iTunes for data exchange.
ITunes was originally conceived as a media player. But later it grew into one of the few tools for connecting iPhone to PC on the Windows operating system.
To use this transfer method, you need to download iTunes to your computer. You can download the program absolutely free. And due to the fact that Apple has a global distribution, the software will be available in Russian.
Please make sure your computer is running Windows 7 or higher before downloading iTunes.
After downloading the required distribution kit, you need to open the exe-file to start the installation. After the end of the process, you will need to follow several steps from a simple instruction that allows you to transfer files:
- Connect iPhone to PC via Lightning to USB cable.
- Confirm trust in the computer.
After performing the specified manipulations, the files will be in the specified folder. Of course, this transfer method is not the most convenient when it comes to transferring a couple of songs or videos. But these are Apple’s limitations.
If you need to move data to a computer to store a backup copy, you can confirm the creation of a backup in the iTunes section “Backups”.
Just do not forget to specify “This computer” as the place to save, not “iCloud”. Otherwise, the files will be uploaded to the cloud.
In addition to instant messengers, you can use email services on PC and iPhone at the same time. Therefore, to send files:
You can send a wide variety of information by email. It can be photo, video, audio or documents. over, email services do not compress files, unlike instant messengers.
IPhone Backup to iTunes
Someone may correctly point out that a backup on a Windows computer is also created through iTunes. We described this method in some detail earlier. But at the same time, the option of creating a backup via iCloud went unnoticed when using the same iTunes program.
So. Connect iPhone to PC via cable and launch iTunes. Next, go to the “Overview” section, check the iCloud icon and click the “Create a copy now” button. If iTunes has already been authorized under Apple ID, all data will begin to be uploaded to Apple servers. But remember that this method of saving requires an internet connection.
