I bet you would like to transfer videos from iPhone to computer like what I have done, so as to free up memory on iPhone (clear iPhone space), back up the valuable recordings on computer, etc. I would like to introduce totally 4 methods I find workable to move videos from iPhone 5S/5C/5/4S/4 to your PC or Mac.
The 4 ways introduced below are widely used by iOS users and you can pick up any of them as you like. They are: Windows OS AutoPlay or Image Capture, iPhone Data Recovery, iTunes, and Wireless. I would like to specify them into 4 parts.
Windows includes a built-in photo import utility called Windows OS AutoPlay that should come up automatically when you first connect your iPhone to PC, providing you the option to import videos (and pictures) to your PC. Mac also gets a familiar function with the Image Capture. However, you can only transfer iPhone videos to computer which are taken with the built-in camera or captured on iPhone. If you find there are some videos left on your iPhone, go to Part 2.
Here is the example with the usage of AutoPlay in Windows PC.
iPhone Data Recovery is the pop software to transfer all videos from iPhone to computer in the media original formats. With powerful performance, this tool can not only move the existing iPhone videos to PC, but also copy the deleted or lost ones to the hard drive on your computer. This is the best option to transfer videos from iPhone to computer without iTunes.
If you want to transfer videos from iPhone to Mac, such as import iPhone videos to macOS 10.12 Sierra, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7, 10.6, etc, go to iPhone Data Recovery for Mac.
iTunes is another option for you to transfer videos to computer, but you can only transfer the purchased videos to iTunes library. If you have other videos for transferring, try iPhone Data Recovery in Part 2.
To watch a purchased video which you transfer to computer, double-click the file in your library or in the appropriate playlist, just as you do with music. By default, the movie plays in the iTunes window.
There are some apps that can help transfer videos from iPhone to computer wirelessly, such as using Wi-Fi. However, it is not guaranteed that the videos are transferred in their original quality to your computer with these apps.
Select any of the above methods to transfer videos from your iPhone to computer according to your need. To ensure all the videos can be transferred to computer in their original quality, we highly recommend you to pick out iPhone Data Recovery specified in Part 2.
