The easiest and most thorough way to transfer your iPhone photos to your laptop is to use a professional data transfer application such as TouchCopy. Photos from a Camera Roll can be transferred without this software (Option 3), but to transfer photos from other albums, TouchCopy is needed. You can use TouchCopy to access and copy any data from your device, including Music, Contacts and Messages. It works with all iPods, iPhones and iPads and you can install it on either PC or Mac systems.
As previously mentioned, if your iPhone has multiple albums from different sources, you may need to use the method in Options 1 or 2. However, for photos stored in your iPhone Camera Roll, you can transfer your photos directly to your laptop using Windows Explorer.
Let's get started...
This option is great if you don't want to store your iPhone photos in iCloud. It works similarly to Option 1 in that it will intelligently tell you what you have already imported, so you won't waste time or space on your Mac by copying duplicates of your photos.
This method requires your Mac or MacBook to be running iTunes 12.5.1 or later, so make sure that your iTunes is up to date before you begin.
Photos will show you which photos you have already imported, and any new photos that you can back up.
So now you know 4 effective ways to transfer your iPhone photos to your laptop without iTunes. As you can see, each method will suit a slightly different situation.
Go forth and save your photos!
