Dear Computer Lady,
How do you down load photos and video from your iphone to windows 10?
Thank you, Andy
There are actually several methods for transferring photos and video from your iPhone to your computer.
My favorite method is to use iCloud, and there are two ways to accomplish this.
First, you need to turn on iCloud for your photos. This not only allows you to access them from your computer, but it also gives you a backup for the photos.
On your phone, go to the settings app, tap on your name at the top, then on iCloud. You will see a list of apps that are currently using iCloud.
Tap on “Photos” and make sure iCloud photo library is turned on. If it was not previously turned on, it might take a few hours for all your photos to sync with the cloud.
Once you have your photos going to iCloud, you can go to your computer, open your web browser and type in www.icloud.com
On the iCloud website, sign in with your apple ID and password. You will see a list of icons, click on “Photos”
When your list of photos appears, you can select as many as you want by clicking on them (Click on the first one, then hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and click on additional photos). When you are finished selecting the photos, click on the icon in the top row that looks like a cloud with an arrow pointing down. A dialog box will open allowing you to select the folder on your computer that you want to download to.
Another method that is more automatic would be to install iCloud for Windows from the apple website.
Once you install iCloud for Windows and fill out a few dialog boxes, your photos will automatically sync between your phone and your computer.
