“Hello, Please can somebody advise? Having had iPhones for ages (3GS and 4) I have never had a problem transferring photos from my iPhone to my Windows Vista laptop. I have always plugged it in, then used the ‘autoplay’ option.But with my new iPhone 5 this option does not come up, nor is the phone visible in my ‘Computer’ section, the only thing that is is Photo Stream.This is an empty folder. I don’t want to use iCloud, although it seems to be set up on my iPhone. How can I transfer photos from iPhone 5 to PC without iCloud?” Still a post I read from Apple community and obviously, this user wanted to transfer photos from his iPhone 5 to PC without iCloud or iTunes and he had difficulties in doing that. Luckily, we have methods to help this user to transfer iPhone 5 photos to PC without iCloud. Keep reading. In order to transfer photos from iPhone 5 to PC without iCloud, the first method is to connect your iPhone 5 to computer and transfer photos directly. After connecting to the computer, you can open Computer and your iPhone 5 will be shown in the portable devices. But this user had tried this methods but he failed. So maybe another method is his choice. Another method is to use iOS data recovery to help to transfer photos from iPhone 5 to PC without iCloud. As I have introduced in the previous posts that there are many such kind software like iFonebox, Dr Fone. All of them have their own strengths. As to the photo aspect, here, I want to introduce FoneLab,also a professional iOS data recovery. How to use FoneLac to transfer photos from iPhone to PC directly? What you need to do first is to download and install FoneLab. Two versions are optional: Windows and Mac. Also you can use the free trial version in advance. Then run FoneLab, choose Recover from iOS Device. Don’t forget to connect your iPhone 5 to the computer. Scan your iPhone data. Preview and select the photos to transfer. Quite simple. That’s the whole process of using FoneLab. Why would I recommend FoneLab here? Because, at present, FoneLab offers a detailed information about the photos from your iPhone or iPad. You can not only get the photos transferred to PC with FoneLab, but a detailed information such as the photo’s date, size and other information. Neither Dr Fone or iFonebox has offered this function. To transfer photos from iPhone 5 to PC is no longer a big problem with these iOS data recovery. Any good suggestions?
