Tip #810: Quickly Transfer iPhone Media
Image Capture is fast, secure, flexible… and free!
In my weekly newsletter, last week, I illustrated a process to quickly and securely transfer photos or video from an iPhone to a Mac using Image Capture.
While many of us use AirDrop, Apple’s free utility, Image Capture, provides the following benefits:
- Faster file transfers due to a direct, wired connection
- More secure transfers. There is no risk you’ll send the wrong image to the wrong person.
- Easier selection of multiple images
- Directly transfer files to a specific folder, without transferring images to the Downloads folder first
- Immediately delete media from your iPhone once it has transferred to your computer
I’ve used AirDrop, Preview and 3rd-party utilities. Image Capture beats all of them.
