How to Transfer Videos from iPhone 8/X/7/6S to PC or Mac

Smartphone technology has been evolving rapidly in recent years. New features are consistently added to new models. And now an iPhone is not just a phone, which only made calls or send text messages in the past. With a decent camera, iPhone allows you to record high-quality videos to keep a memory of your daily life. However, these videos has large size and occupy space. With a limited, non-expandable memory, it seems you had no choice but to delete one of these videos in order to free up more space on your iPhone.

 

The truth is that you don’t have to delete those videos. You can back up those videos to a Mac or PC when the memory is in short. This also applies to other media files, such as movies, TV Shows or Podcasts. With iPhone Transfer, you can transfer all kinds of data on your iPhone to computer in a few minutes, which in my opinion is much easier than using iTunes. iPhone Transfer is a great iTunes alternatives to ease the life of using iPhone. And you can completely forget the pain of using iTunes for data sync between iPhone and computer. Not to mention data mess if you just operate iTunes in a wrong way. The program supports a list of iOS devices and file type. I will list them in below:

 

iOS Device: iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone SE/6S/6/5S/5/4S, iPad/iPad Mini/iPad Pro/iPad Air, iPod Touch

 

File Type: Videos, TV Shows, Movies, Music, Voice Memos, Podcasts, Photos, SMS, Contacts.

It’s highly recommended to back up your data on iPhone in case of any data loss. It will also save more storage on your device when you chose to transfer them to a computer, especially for those files that take large space such as videos and photos. If you change a new computer, you can directly transfer the whole library to the new iTunes. Or directly transfer the data to a new iOS device. iPhone Transfer is quite a convenient program that you should definitely own a copy.
