Because of its design and unique operation experience, iPhone has become our go-to cameras, and there are occasions when users need to transfer photos from iPhone to computer. For example, if they you want to edit the photos with Photoshop, the transferring of photos from iPhone to computer is inevitable. Plus that the iPhone has no Micro SD slot and the data sharing via USB is not supported by iPhone 5, so we introduce 3 simplest methods for you to transfer pictures from iPhone 5 to computer.
Method 1: Move Files from iPhone 5s/5c/5 to PC Using iTunes
iTunes acts as a bridge that connects computer and iPhone 5 with a USB cable, which makes the sharing between iPhone and PC happen by syncing the photos on your device.
Organize your photos in iPhone and plug in your iPhone and open iTunes.
Find the iPhone icon and select Photos tab on the left, and check the "Sync Photos" box.
Select "Choose folder..." from the drop down menu to browse to the desired folder.
Choose the picture folder you want to sync and click Apply to start transferring. Then all the selected photos will be moved to your computer.
Method 2: Copy Photos from iPhone 5s/5c/5 to Windows via iCloud
Requirement: iPhone, USB cable, a computer to plug the device into, iCloud, Wi-Fi
Apple iCloud can also help you to sync photos from iPhone to your computer. Enable iCloud in Settings and turn on Photo Stream. Then download the iCloud Control Panel onto your PC. If you're connected to WIFI, all photos that you take with your iPhone will be saved within seconds directly to your computer. But they will be synced next time when you have Wi-Fi connection if you're not connected to Wi-Fi now.
Note: iCloud won't transfer videos recorded with your iPhone and is unable to sync photos taken before iCloud is on.
