Way 1: How to Move Videos from iPhone to Computer with iCloud Photos Library

All Apple product users know a little or more about iCloud. It is probably one of the most common services in iOS. Many users go for it to store data but many are not aware of some features like the iCloud Photo Library that comes inbuilt with it. The iCloud Photo Library is basically a syncing system that can help users transfer videos or any data from iPhone to computer using Wi-Fi. So, you need to set up this feature on your iPhone as well as on your PC to start the syncing. Here's how to move videos from iPhone to computer using iCloud Photo Library:

1. On your iPhone X/8/7/7Plus/6/6Plus/SE/5 etc, tap on "Settings", enter your name and hit "iCloud" to get "Photos". For iOS 10 and earlier users, tap on "Settings", go to "iCloud", then to go "Photos & Camera" to get "Photos"

2. Now, enable "iCloud Photo Library" on iPhone.

This will ensure that whenever your two devices are connected to a steady cellular or Wi-Fi connection, your videos will be synced to your computer. Keep in mind this whole process is completely dependent on a stable Wi-Fi connection and also iCloud offers only 5 GB of free storage and if you want more you have a pay an extra amount. This is a major let down!

Way 2: How to Send Videos from iPhone to PC with Email

In case, you don't want to use Cloud services at all, it is possible to send videos through Email straight to your target PC. Emailing is so common nowadays that we tend to forget what it is really capable of. Apart from sending texts and messages, it can send videos but there is a catch! It is only possible to send small videos, as large videos will need compression to reduce overall MB size and this, in turn, will hamper video quality to quite an extent. So, keeping that in mind, this is how to move photos and videos from iPhone to PC using Email:

1. Open your iPhone Camera Roll.

2. Choose the video you want to send to your computer.

3. Now, hit the Share icon after selection.

4. Tap on the "Mail" option from the list of sharing options.
