How Do You Add/Transfer Photo from PC to iPhone without iTunes without Data Loss?

Photo Transfer iPhone/iPad Last Updated: December 1, 2017

This article is about how to add photos from a PC to your iPhone without data loss. There is a way to transfer photos to iPhone and also move photos from iPhone to computer without using iTunes.

This is no strange thing when talking about transferring photo from iPhone to computer, which has always been a great demand, because people used to take the big hardware memory for granted while comparing with the small iPhone storage that has great possibility to be flooded and jammed with new photographs every day. But things change slightly after the release of Apple iPhone 7 that comes with the skyrocket of internal storage. The maximum memory of iPhone 7 Plus reaches 256GB storage, absolutely on a par with that of a computer disk.

Successively, people begin to go in quest of adding photos from PC to iPhone. Why? Some mobile phone changer who have photos backup onto computers from the old phone need to reload them to the new iPhone, the other might have the need to copy special pictures from hard drive to iPhone X/8/7/6S/6/5S, etc to facilitate sharing with friends by some third-party chat apps or uploading to SNS online such as Facebook, Twitter, Intagram and Flickr.

But it's easier said than done. You'll find that nearly all the iPhone managers do not support computer to iPhone transfer perfectly enough when dealing with photos. The theoretical explanation stresses on the pimping demand of users attributed to the lack of mobile memory. The unbeknown fact, however, is mainly involves in the technical level: it is difficult to realize accessing a default app of iPhone and adding foreign things into it because of Apple's strict closeness and exclusiveness. For instance, occasional crashes happen on AnyTrans after spending ten minutes on adding just one photo to phone, and even the well-known MobileGo will prompt that "this operation may cause the photo lost". Without attention, errors are likely to happen: the photos that finally been deleted have the great chance to be the ones that you did not chose and did not intend to remove. Therefore, the opposite is the case and you will lose some important images.

All in all, unlike exporting iPhone photos, the photo importing operation will be somewhat unstable. But WinX MediaTrans can add photos from computer or hard drive to iPhone SE/5/5S/6/6S/7/8/X (Plus included).

Besides, many iOS users dislike using iTunes because of the non-user-friendly and complicated design, registration requirement and lousy pop-up notifications. .

But with its recent shift toward streaming media, Apple risks losing its most music-obsessed users: the collectors.
