There is no file explorer type utility in iOS just like we have it on Android system. So how can I copy files from/to my iPad from/to other computers (MacBook/Windows)? Specifically I am interested in the video created by the iOS Camera app.

If you prefer not to sync the whole library with iTunes there are plenty of other things you can do, but most require network connection:

  • Apple's Photos app
  • Image Capture
  • Airdrop (as mentioned above)
  • Since you mention file system access, and non-wireless transfer that would only be possible with 3rd party utilities (iMazing, iExplorer, PhoneView and more...) I won’t post links here, sure you’ll be able to find yourself.

Disclosure: I work with the iMazing team.

Use AirDrop. With the video selected on the iPad, and the MB Finder in AirDrop, chose the Share button (box w/ curved arrow), then find and chose AirDrop.

EDIT: See Import photos and videos from your iOS device to MAC or Windows

I use Dropbox's automatic Camera Upload feature. If you've installed Dropbox on your computers, they should start downloading the videos as soon as the iPad has uploaded them.

  • The Dropbox (and other cloud-based solutions) are good but they limit me to have a working internet connection. What if I don't have the internet connection at the moment, or is it too much slow to upload MBs of data. – Nabeel Dec 12 '14 at 11:02
