Tip #767: Import Media From an iPhone – FAST!
Importing media from an iPhone is fast and easy with Preview.
Importing media from an iPhone into a Mac is fast and easy … if you know the secret.
OK, I’ll tell you.
- Connect your iPhone to a Mac using a Lightning > USB cable.
- Unlock your phone.
- Open Preview (the app) on the Mac.
- Go to File > Import from iPhone.
Preview then displays a directory of all the images and video on your phone. Simply drag the files you want from this window to your desktop – or wherever you want them stored.
This method, unlike Air Drop, allows you to easily select multiple files to transfer and copies them at a much faster rate. When you are done, simply unplug the cable. Nothing to eject or shut down.
Very, very easy – if you know the secret.
