Microsoft lets iOS App transfer photos to PC

  • Uber Windows 10 App

Well, Microsoft has come up with a solution. With the help of this app, you can easily transfer the photos in your mobile device to your Windows 10 pc over WiFi. Called Photos Companion, the app makes it easy for users to transfer photos from their iOS devices to their PCs. The latest version of Microsoft Photos can be found in the Microsoft Store. The app works together with the Photos app in Windows 10 (version 2018.18011.13110.0 and above) and utilizes a feature that's now a part of the Photos app preview program. All it takes is scanning the QR code flashed on the screen of the Windows 10 PC. The app works by temporarily linking (via QR code) to the Windows 10 photos app.

The transfer service is based around QR codes and Wi-Fi and works so long as the Windows 10 PC is on the same network as the Android or iOS device you want to move photos or videos from. Also, if in case the Import from mobile over Wi-Fi option is not visible in the Photos app on your Windows computer, you need to enable the Show additional preview features option that is available in the Settings section of the Photos app.

It is to be noted that you already have the option to back up your photos and videos to a cloud service, such as Google Drive, iCloud, or even Microsoft's OneDrive. So the Garage and Photos team opted for a Wi-Fi based direct transfer system. While the app was created for students and educators, it'll likely be useful for anyone who needs to get their media onto a PC without having to find a cable.


In addition to offering photo syncing, Photos Companion will also allow you to "Start a video project in the Photos app on the PC, and add pictures and videos from your phone directly into a project".

Download the Photos Companion app on your iOS device from App Store, or for your Android device via Google Play Store.
