How to transfer all photos from iPhone to Windows 10

If you have lots of photos on an iPhone, but want to put them on a Windows 10 computer, there is a way to do this. First, a simple method is to sync up your iPhone to your Windows 10 computer. This ensures the photos automatically transfer between the two devices, but it must be set up in advance.

Syncing is done by using a USB to Lightning cable and doing it wired, as this is much faster than doing it wirelessly. However, you can do it wirelessly if you prefer. It can also be done via the Cloud.
