How to Transfer Photos and Videos from iPhone to Mac/PC in Compatible Format

Transferring photos and videos from iPhone to Mac/PC in compatible format is made easier and hassle-free with the introduction of iOS 11.

With iOS 11, you can transfer your photos and videos from your iPhone to Mac or PC in the compatible format. It would enable you to move files faster and more efficiently.

I often have to transfer media from iOS to macOS devices for various purposes like editing or giving those memorable shots a better place to rest. The ability to automatically convert photos in compatible format makes the task more smooth-sailing. One of the main advantages of this useful feature is that it can (most probably) get the job done even on a relatively poor internet connection. If you don’t want to tinker with the actual file type, there is always an option to keep originals.

This is a very useful feature as it simplifies the process of transferring files. Your device is less likely to get stuck while moving the files.

Do you know that iOS 11 has two camera formats like HEIF and HEVC that allow you to reduce the file size of your photos/videos by up to 50% –without any loss of quality? That apart, they can also extend the battery life of your device and cut down cellular data usage.
