Transfer Photos from iPhone to Android

4 Ways to Transfer Photos from iPhone to Android Phone

Method 1. Drag and Drop through USB and Computer

In a traditional way, making the two different platforms - iOS and Android communicate is to use the USB cable and Windows computer. After connecting them to computer via USB, you can simply drag and drop the iPhone photos to Android phone. Before transferring, you need to connect both your iPhone and Android phone to computer with USB cable.

Step 1. After connecting the two handsets to computer, open My Computer on your PC.
Step 2. Find your devices in the Portable Devices part. If you don't see anyone of them there, it must not be recognized by your computer. Try to reconnect it to your computer or find other ways to solve Android or iPhone not recognized by Windows.
Step 2. Open your iPhone Internal Storage in a new window, and open your Android storage in another new window.
Step 3. Choose photos you want to transfer from iPhone to Android in the iPhone DCIM folder, and then simply drag and drop them from iPhone image folder to Android image folder.

However, this method shows problems often, though it is really easy and quick to transfer pictures from iPhone to Android. The process may stall or hang for some unknown reason or when transferring a very large number of images. To solve that, you can first create a new folder and transfer photos from iPhone to computer, and then copy the photos in this folder to Android to make the process much easier.

But from my experience, this error still occurs unexpectedly. So, maybe you can try method 2 under such circumstance.
