The iPad Air 5th generation is a popular device for taking pictures and videos. However, transferring those photos and videos to a Windows computer or laptop can be a challenge. In this article, we will show you how to transfer photos and videos directly from your iPad to your Windows computer using the cable.
First, note that the cable that comes with your iPad Air 5th generation is a USB-C to a USB-C. If your computer has a USB-C or a Thunder port or a Thunderbolt charging port, you can use it to connect your iPad to your computer. If not, you can use a USB-A to a USB-C. Once you have the right cable, plug one end into your computer and the other end into your iPad.
Next, sign in to your iPad, and you should get a message asking if you want to allow this device to access photos and videos. Click “allow” to proceed.
Once your iPad is connected to your computer, open File Explorer by clicking on the little yellow folder on your taskbar. If you don’t see it, you can type “File Explorer” into the search bar. From there, go down to “This PC” and click on it. You should see your hard drive and your Apple iPad. Double-click on your Apple iPad, then double-click on “Internal Storage,” and then double-click on the “DCIM” folder.
You should see several folders with all your videos and photos. Double-click on the folder containing the photos or videos you want to transfer. You can then drag and drop the files directly onto your desktop, or you can create a new folder and move them there.
To create a new folder, right-click on the desktop, go to “New,” and then click on “Folder.” Name the new folder, select all the files you want to transfer, and then drag and drop them into the new folder. Once the transfer is complete, you can eject your iPad and access your new folder with all your photos and videos on your Windows computer.
In conclusion, transferring photos and videos from your iPad to your Windows computer is a simple process. All you need is the right cable and a few clicks, and you can easily copy photos and videos from your iPad to your computer. Good luck!
