How can I save photos on iPhone 5s not using Cloud

  Govan1x 12:06 14 Apr 2017

My daughter is giving me her Iphone 5s as she is upgrading but wants her Photos saved.

Her iCloud is full so cannot download them to that as she wants to keep those as well.

She has 5G/bytes of photos and videos on this iPhone so is there another way to keep them as I would be resetting the Phone to factory settings.

Hello Govan1x . Just managed it and now videos and photos uploading to the PC. I'm trying to remember the steps. Connect the phone to PC.Log in to phone then iTunes should open on the PC. On the phone open the 'photos' app. Don't let the phone sleep, then open the photos app in Windows 10, and select 'import' top right. Once the PC start importing then it doesn't matter if the iPhone sleeps. Check everything has uploaded in your pictures folder on the PC. Windows 10 can play MOV. files thankfully. Once you're happy all is done click the file tab in iTunes and select exit. Remove the phone.

Ok thanks for the advice I am away from home for a few weeks so cannot do anything till I get back. I have the phone with me but have no sim card on it and basically I do not want to download it on my computer but my daughters laptop with W7 on it. But I suppose any port in a storm.

I will get my grandson to try it out to see if he can work it out. I just do not want to loose the photos or Videos that she has on it.

Cheer's everyone thanks for all your help.

One last Question can you download them on to a USB Memory Stick or would that not work.

I only have the slimmest knowledge of iPhones as all my phones are classed as ancient. So if I ask a daft question ignore it.

Ok have got the general idea on how to do it now but as it will be a fortnight before I am back home will class this as resolved.

Feel free to add any other ideas if you wish, But nothing I can do till I get back to the UK.
