You may purchase the new Samsung Galaxy S10/S10e/S10 and enjoy taking photos with them. If you also have iPhone/iPad, it's very likely that you want to transfer your photos from your Samsung to your iDevice so that you can view them on both devices. How would you do that? Copy and paste manually to the computer and then move to another phone? That is really troublesome. Indeed, you can use some third-party apps or software to transfer your photos from Samsung to iPhone/iPad.
