At the Surface event, Microsoft announced several new hardware including Surface Pro 9, Surface Studio 2+ and Surface Laptop 5. Along with these, the company also announced some new features that will be coming to Windows 11 in the coming months. The one that caught our attention was the new iCloud photos integration in the Windows Photos app.
The new integration is aimed at making things easier for iPhone
users to transfer photos and videos on Windows devices. However, the feature is currently in beta testing and there’s no information on when Microsoft will release it for the stable version.
However, iCloud integration isn’t the only way that allows users to transfer photos and videos on Windows PCs. For instance, users can use the old data cable transfer method to transfer photos. Alternatively, users also have the option to cloud storage, other than iCloud, to transfer photos.
So, if you are wondering how to transfer photos from iPhone to Windows, follow our step-by-step guide:
