HOW TO TRANSFER PHOTOS FROM IPHONE TO AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE ON MAC

STEPS

  1. Create a folder or have a folder ready on your external hard drive
  2. Connect your external hard drive to your mac
  3. Connect your iPhone to your mac
  4. Go to “Finder” >”Applications” and then open “Image capture”
  5. Image capture should recognise your iPhone.
  6. Click “Import”
  7. Select “other” and find your external hard drive
  8. Select your folder on your external hard drive.
  9. Start the transfer
  10. Wait, it may take a while (depending on how many photos you are transferring)
  11. Once Image Capture completes the transfer, decide whether you want to delete or keep the photos on your iPhone. I normally delete them so I get more space in my iPhone to take more photos.

Viola! You should have now completed transferring your iPhone photos to your external hard drive using your mac.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO TRANSFER YOUR PHOTOS TO AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE?

  • Security. As you own and look after your external hard drive, no hacker can find your photos. Also if your iPhone gets stolen you have your photos and videos already backed up on your external hard drive.
  • Free up space on your phone. Yes, photos and videos can take up a lot of space on your iPhone. Transferring photos to an external hard drive will free up space in your iPhone.
