How to Transfer Photos from Samsung Galaxy to iPhone/iPad
--Wednesday, May 17, 2017
To copy Samsung photographs to an iDevice, a way may come into your mind—login your Google account on the Galaxy phone first, and then sync the files to Gmail; again you move them to iPhone 7/7 Plus in Settings. It seems like an effortless way, but, actually, it is not enough if you hear me out. I will introduce a new method, which is direct and quick. That is, doing it with the help of third-party applications: Mobile Transfer and TunesGo.
Method 1: Easy steps to Copy Samsung Pictures to iDevice with Mobile Transfer
Mobile Transfer, as you can see, is a tool for file transmission between two mobile devices. In the article, we mainly use it to transfer Galaxy photos to an iPhone or iPad. It is well-designed to exchange high-quality data.
Your computer should have iTunes installed before we begin the transfer. And, if you have anything left in the Gmail account, download them to the phone first, in order to transmit all of them.
Step 1. Open Mobile Transfer
When launching the software you will see the interface, on which four modes are to be chosen from. Click the biggest rectangle, "Phone to Phone Transfer".
Step 2. Use USB Cables to Connect Samsung Phone and iPhone/iPad to PC
This is quite easy to do. Just plug one end of the cord into the USB port of the computer and the other into the dock connector of the mobiles. First do it with Samsung and then iPhone, so that the former device can be detected as a "Source Phone".
Note: But, if you do not do it in this order, press the button "Flip" to exchange the places.
Step 3. Select Samsung Photos to be Switched to iPhone
Look at the middle of the interface. The number of the detected records will be displayed. When the words are grey, it means there is no such thing in the Galaxy phone. Now, check "Photos" and then click "Start Copy". At the end, you should press "OK". (It is optional to clear the "Destination Phone". But, remember to do an iPhone backup before you decide to do this.)
Method 2: Transfer Photos from Samsung Galaxy to iPhone/iPad via TunesGo
The other way to transfer photos from Android to iOS device is to copy the data with the help of TunesGo. You are able to exchange the data files from one device to another directly with the program. You can download it on your computer and have a try.
Step 1. Connect Android and iOS Device to PC
After you download and install the program on your computer, please launch it. Then plug your Android into PC with the USB debugging enabled, and later you need to connect iOS device as well. When you plug your iOS device into the computer, you may need to go to your device and tap "Trust" on the pop-up window.
Note: If you want to transfer data from your Android to iPad/iPhone, you need to connect Android into the computer first, and then the iOS device. Please pay attention to the sequence.
Step 2. Choose the Data You Want to Transfer
After you connect the two devices into the computer, please click "Phone to Phone Transfer" on the interface of the program. Then select your target phone on the left and click "Next" button. After that, the program would detect the data on your source device and you can choose the "Photos" only if you just want to transfer the images to your target device.
Step 3. Move Data from Android to iOS
You are able to delete contents on the target device by ticking the checkbox on the bottom of the pop-up window so that you can get a large storage space to receive the data. Now the program would start to transfer data if you click the "Transfer" button.
Method 3: A Complicated Trick to Upload Photos to iOS from Samsung
Have your ever heard of "iCloud for Windows"? This is an extra service provided for iOS users to download or upload photos from/to iCloud, which is only available on the computer running Windows. Therefore, we can use this feature to transfer photos from Samsung to iPhone/iPad. However, the steps might seem a bit intricate. For a clear idea, I divide the whole process into two parts. Please take a look.
Part 1: Transfer Photos from Samsung to Computer
Step 1. Connect your Samsung Galaxy to computer.
Step 2. Tap "Allow" on phone when prompted to "Allow access to device data".
Step 3. Swiping down the pull-down notification bar and select "Transferring media files via USB".
Step 4. Tap to enable "Transferring media files"from the pop-up.
Step 5. Now, the Auto Play dialog will show up on computer. Please choose "Open device to view files" option.
Step 6. Manually select and copy "Pictures" folder and then paste to desktop or somewhere on computer. Note that also you can copy multiple desired photos to computer instead of a whole folder.
Part 2: Upload Photos from Desktop to iOS Device
Step 1. Download and install iCloud for Windows on your computer.
Step 2. Launch "iCloud for Windows" tool. Next to "Photos", click "Options".
Step 3. Choose "iCloud Photo Library" option.
Step 4. Touch "Done", and then click "Apply".
Step 5. Enable "iCloud Photo Library" on your iPhone/iCloud.
Step 6. Click iCloud for Windows and choose "Upload Photos".
Step 7. Manually select photos and upload to iOS device.
With Mobile Transfer and TunesGo, you can download photos from Samsung phone and send pictures to iPhone as well. Want to try these programs? Do not hesitate to do it. And if you like this little tips, you may spread the word by clicking the social media icons.
