With our computers, we can enjoy watching our favorite videos on a larger screen. But, some of us prefer to watch videos conveniently on our iPhones. It allows us to watch our movies, vlogs, or series, wherever and whenever we like.
That is why some iPhone users are planning to move their videos from their PC to their mobile phones. But not a lot of people know how to do it. Well, if you happen to be in the same situation, don’t worry.
In this article, we listed four helpful methods on how to transfer videos from PC to iPhone. Check them out.
Method 1: Transfer Videos from PC to iPhone via iTunes
The first method you can try is iTunes. This feature can store the videos from your PC and transfer them directly to your iPhone. What you need to do is connect your iPhone, select the target files, and begin the transfer.
But, iTunes will overwrite the current videos on your iPhone. Once you start the transfer, all the videos on your phone will be deleted and replaced by the clips from your PC.
Download the latest iTunes app on your PC and launch it.
Connect your iPhone to the computer and tap Trust on the phone screen to proceed.
On iTunes, click the iPhone icon then choose Photos > Sync Photos from > All Folders (import all videos) or Selected Folders (choose individually) > Include videos.
Next, tick Done and hit Apply. iTunes will then start to sync the files to your iPhone. It may take some time depending on the size of the data.
Method 2: Transfer Videos from Computer to iPhone via iCloud Drive
To send videos from PC to iPhone, you may also try using cloud services such as iCloud Drive. This tool lets you store and transfer different files. After copying your videos on iCloud Drive, you can then access and download them on your iPhone.
But you have to remember that iCloud only has 5GB of free storage. So if your videos exceed this limit, you need to purchase additional space.
On your computer, log in to the iCloud website using the Apple ID used on the iPhone. From there, click on iCloud Drive.
Hit the Download icon and choose the videos you want to transfer then click Open. Wait for the uploading to finish.
When it’s done, open your iPhone and go to Settings > your Profile > iCloud > turn on iCloud Drive.
Exit Settings and open the Files app. Tick Browse and choose iCloud Drive. You should see the videos you uploaded earlier.
Select your target videos, tap the three-dot icon, and select Download. The videos should be downloaded on your iPhone storage after.
