Differing from other smartphones, Apple iPhone doesn't allow inserting a microSD card to expand storage. As a consequence, we are easy to run out of the space of iPhone, especially for a phone with negligible 16GB. Then, what we should do to free up iPhone? Clearing cache seems can't do much favor. Delete files? It is not a wise policy. Actually, the best method is to backup iPhone photos which always take up the majority space to computer or somewhere else first and then delete them off iPhone.
So, how to backup iPhone photos? According to manufacturer Apple's suggestion, we can make iPhone backup via iTunes and iCloud. But considering that some people may have trouble with iTunes/iCloud, we'd like to show you an alternative way - backup iPhone photos to PC/Mac, external hard drive, flash drive or other storage devices via an easy-to-use iPhone photo backup app.
WinX MediaTrans is a piece of professional photo transfer software, specially designed to transfer photos from iPhone to PC/Mac computer and add photos from computer to iPhone. Thus, you can backup photos from iPhone (7, SE, 6s, 6, Plus, 5s, 4s, etc.) to computer, be it powered by Windows (10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista) or by Mac OS X (MacOS Sierra, 10.11 El Capitan or lower).
And it is worth noting that this tool features super fast transfer speed. If you select 100 4K pictures, it will take you 8 seconds only for backup to computer, while other software needs 30 seconds or more.
Besides iPhone photo backup, WinX MediaTrans can backup iPhone music (purchased or non-purchased), and iPhone videos (including TV shows and movies). That is to say, it enables you to transfer music from iPhone to Mac/PC computer, and transfer videos, movies, TV series from iPhone to computer for safe storage or for media playback on large screen device. What's more, it can remove DRM from movies, music, and audio books purchased from iTunes, make ringtone for iPhone, transfer voice memos from iPhone to PC, transfer eBooks, iTunes U and podcast between iPhone and PC, and make your iPhone work as a flash drive to store all kinds of file types for free, such as PDF, PPT, DOC.
