Question about Cell Phones
Transfer Photos from iPhone to MacIn almost all cases, the fastest and simplest way to copy pictures from an iPhone to a Mac is with Image Capture and Preview. We'll discuss how with both apps:
Using Image Capture to Import Photos in OS XThis is a fast and efficient way to pull photos off the iPhone, which treats the device as a digital camera:
You can also transfer pictures to your Mac with iPhoto or Preview, which is just as simple and actually has a virtually identical interface for initiating the transfer. Here is how to import with Preview:
Copying Photos with PreviewThough Preview is usually thought of as an image viewer, it can also serve as a fast importer:
Optionally: Click the checkbox with "Delete after import" if you want to delete the photos after they have been copied over to the computer.
The benefit of using either Preview or Image Capture is that these apps are on virtually every version of OS X since from the very beginning of the OS, so you won't find a Mac version without them. iPhoto on the other hand is generally limited to the consumer model Macs, thus making it not always available on pro models, but it does work as well, and iPhoto will also serve as a photo manager of sorts.
Transfer Photos from iPhone to PC (XP)Using Windows Plug & PlayThis utilizes the pop-up that shows by default in Windows when a device is connected to the computer by way of USB.
Note that in Windows 7 and Windows 8 you will often find the iPhone mounted under "Portable Devices" but it can also be found listed under "Digital Camera". Opening either will work to copy the pictures over, but typically Digital Camera opens directly to the DCIM directory whereas Portable Devices will sometimes require minor navigation within the folder to copy the files.
Using iPhone as Digital Camera in Windows ExplorerIf your iPhone is already plugged into the PC, you can also try this method:
The Windows approach treats the iPhone more like a file system, just like it does with standard digital cameras that are connected to a PC. That generally makes Windows even easier for moving pictures back and forth if you like to cut & paste things directly from one folder to another in My Pictures or My Documents. Nonetheless, you can also use your favorite photo importing application to pull the pictures from the device as well.
Remember, if the iPhone pictures are not showing up in Windows, make sure the iPhone is unlocked first. Otherwise the iPhone will be found in 'My Computer' but all of the content on it will be invisible and inaccessible. If you run into that, all you need to do is touch the iPhone, unlock the screen and enter the passcode, and all of your stuff will be visible as expected.
Finally, you can also sync your photos using just iTunes on either Mac OS or Windows but that is more for iPhone backup purposes and doesn't really serve as a means of accessing individual pictures.
On a Windows PC the easiest way to get pictures from your iPhone is to just use Windows Explorer, but there are two ways to go about this. In either case, unlock the iPhone before beginning, or else the photos may not be visible.
