What makes you think he has a Mac? He has an over priced iPhone and a PC


From what post did you see that someone thought he had a Mac. No one said that.

I use Syncios. It’s free and very easy to use. Transfers both ways.

Thanks every one for your feedback, but I am trying to copy FROM PC TO iPhone... not form iPhone to PC.
I didn't like the complications of iTune and sync issue I have had in the past with multiple iPhones in the household.

Very disappointing I could not do the same with the iPhone.

So, after research and I haven't' found a rock solid solution just a lot of ads for apps, including a Microsoft solution. I am willing to pay for the app, if it's not really expensive. I rather not go the route of moving photo to third party (Goggle, DropBox, etc.) and then download to the iPhone. I just want to transfer photo to/from my PC and iPhone. If you have an iPhone with one of these apps I could use your advise.

Also, I haven't found a creditable site that reviewed/compared these third party apps.

You can get iCloud for Windows. You can then sign into iCloud and see/download/upload photos between your PC and your iphone.

(More precisely, you can see/download/upload photos between your PC and iCloud, then your phone can access everything on iCloud).

Download Google Photos. It will automatically grab the photos you shoot on the iPhone and you can just use the google photos website to manage them, and download them to your PC if you wish. No fuss, no actions on your part required. If you stay within the Google 15GB total, they will keep the picture "forever" (not quite sure what forever is in this context).

You can do the same with your iphone if you have a charging cord with a usb connector on windows. When you plug the usb cord into your computer you just need to give the computer permission to access the images on your phone and then you can save them to any folder you want on your computer

iTunes is a free app for all things IOS. You can download it to your pc, then have it integrate all of your music and photos that you now use on your Android. It’s is a simple procedure that takes place during the iTunes setup.
Then you can transfer that music and photos to your iPhone.


iTunes has a huge price that they do not tell you about. It will take over a lot of control on your computer, and it will hog a lot of resources on your computer just like Norton anti-virus used to do. Stay away from it if you can.

iTunes is a free app which facilitates the movement of music and photos (and a few other things, I think) between a Windows computer and an iPhone. The only cost is when one wants to download music or photos from the web to the phone. My son tells me there are numerous YouTube video tutorials about the subject.

Image Capture on a Mac. It's included as a utility. Super simple.

My first iPhone6 with 16GB where already about the half was gone just for ISO. iTunes wiped out one time my hole phone. The best two options I found without iCloud and what ever.....

Thank all for the feedback, but if you read my post I want to transfer FROM PC (or any other device USB or Mac) to iPhone. Not the other way around.

I have been using an iPhone and Windows (Windows 10 now) for many years. I connect my iPhone to the PC via the USB cable to the phone. Then in Windows File Explorer, I click on the iPhone and open the folder DCIM. There are all the folders and files of the pictures on the phone. Then I drag the photos to the folder in Windows and delete them from the phone. I never go through any third party app or software to move the photos. I hope this helps.


Rick is correct. I was becoming confused about why the talk of apps. In my line of work (auto damage appraiser) I use iPhones exclusively, and I take hundreds of photos weekly. When I am ready to work on an appraisal file I have always simply attached the ‘charge’ cord to my PC, select the photos, transferred, and moved on, then delete from phone. All simple with no effort. And though MS has updated the Windows many times 7pro was my favorite, it’s the same with 10Pro. The phone is just a elaborate thumb drive. I can use this process with any PC.

With an "I expand drive from Sandisk you can transfer either way, PC to I phone or vice versa. With the download of a Sandisk app on both devices, the process is ultra easy
