Answered by Cody Janus

Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide on how to transfer photos from your PC to your iPhone without using iCloud or iTunes:

1. Connect your iPhone to your PC using a USB cable. Make sure your iPhone is unlocked and trust the computer when prompted.

2. On your PC, open “This PC” or “My Computer” to access your iPhone’s file system.

3. Locate your iPhone under the “Devices and drives” section. It should appear as an external storage device.

4. Open your iPhone’s storage by double-clicking on its icon. You may need to enter your iPhone’s passcode again to access the files.

5. Within your iPhone’s storage, navigate to the “Internal Storage” folder.

6. Look for a folder named “DCIM” (which stands for Digital Camera Images). Open this folder.

7. Inside the “DCIM” folder, you should find a subfolder named “100APPLE” or something similar. This is where your iPhone stores its photos.

8. Now, open the folder on your PC where the photos you want to transfer are located.

9. Select the photos you wish to transfer to your iPhone. You can do this by holding down the Ctrl key (or Command key on Mac) and clicking on each photo.

10. Once the photos are selected, right-click on any of the selected photos and choose “Copy.”

11. Go back to the “100APPLE” folder in your iPhone’s storage and right-click inside the folder. Select “Paste” to transfer the copied photos from your PC to your iPhone.

12. Wait for the photos to finish transferring. This may take some time, depending on the size and number of photos being transferred.

13. Once the transfer is complete, safely disconnect your iPhone from your computer by clicking on the “Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media” icon in the system tray and selecting your iPhone from the list.

14. On your iPhone, open the Photos app to view the transferred photos. They should now be available in your Camera Roll or any other relevant albums.

That’s it! You have successfully transferred photos from your PC to your iPhone without using iCloud or iTunes. Enjoy your newly added photos on your device.

Please note that the steps provided may vary slightly depending on your operating system and the version of iOS on your iPhone.
