Transferring photos from your iPhone to iPad can be a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be. In this post, we will discuss four different methods of transferring photos from your iPhone to iPad and see which one is the most efficient.

Method 1: Transfer Photos via AirDrop

AirDrop is an Apple-based ecosystem that makes transferring files from one Apple device to another extremely easy. To use this method, you need to make sure AirDrop is turned on both on your iPhone and iPad, and both devices can recognize each other.

To transfer photos via AirDrop, go to the photos app on your iPhone, select the photos you want to transfer, tap the share button, and select AirDrop. Then, tap on your iPad name that appears on the screen, and accept the transfer.

This method is recommended when you need to transfer only a few photos and videos.

Method 2: Transfer with iTunes

To transfer photos with iTunes, you need to connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes. Then, select the photos on the sidebar, import them to your computer using Adobe Photoshop Elements or Windows Import Pictures.

After importing the photos to your computer, connect your iPad to your computer, select photos on the sidebar, and tick the sync photos option. Choose the folder you just imported from your iPhone and click done. iTunes will start syncing the photos to your iPad.

This method is convenient when you need to transfer a large number of photos, but it requires the use of two different software. Also, the photos synced from iTunes cannot be deleted from your iPad.

Method 3: Transfer with iCareFone

iCareFone is a software from Tenorshare that allows you to transfer a ton of photos and videos in a super-fast speed. To use this method, download iCareFone on your computer and connect your iPhone to it.

Click on manage on the menu bar, select the photos you want to import, choose the location, and click OK. Then, connect your iPad to your computer, download iCareFone app on your iPad, and enable the delete function on your iPad. Import the photos to your iPad by selecting the folder or file you want to transfer.

Method 4: Transfer with iCloud

To use this method, turn on the iCloud photos button on your iCloud settings on both your iPhone and iPad. Make sure you’re logging in with the same Apple ID. Apple provides 5GB of iCloud storage for free, but if you need more space, you’ll need to pay Apple every month.

Which method is the best for you? It depends on your needs. If you need to transfer only a few photos, AirDrop is the best method. If you need to transfer a large number of photos, iCareFone is a great option. If you want your photos to sync automatically, iCloud is a good choice.
