Is there a software in Windows that will make file transfer between an iPhone and PC easier? I have tried iMazing. It's kinda great, but the problem is that when I am transferring files from my Windows PC to iPhone, (videos to be precise), it doesn't transfer all the files that I need. I suspect it's the format.

  • Welcome to Ask Different :) Can you elaborate on what kind of files you are looking to transfer?

  • Just photos and videos. Like jpeg, gif, png, mp4, and some files that are playable in vlc like mkv and such... I find it hard because im used to android. Like whenever im transferring files in android its much more easier than apple. I tried some apps like anytrans and such but it suck bcs the features are limited. And i guess there is a specific format that apple allows so i guess some of my files are not able to pass thru Jun 1, 2019 at 19:40
  • Try a cross-platform cloud solution such as DropBox or Google Drive. Using a cable is so 20th century. :-)

The software you should be looking for is iTunes, specifically iTunes for Windows. You can download iTunes for Windows via:

If you wish to transfer and playback unsupported videos files on your iPhone, install VLC for Mobile on your iPhone and use iTunes File Sharing feature to easily transfer video files to your iPhone.

For detailed instructions regarding file sharing, refer to the Apple Support Article:

  • Also note that VLC has a built-in uploader so that one can completely bypass iTunes if you like. Jun 2, 2019 at 13:34
  • iTunes enables syncing, which doesn't sound as though it's what the OP needs.
