In today’s digital age, our smartphones have become an integral part of our lives. Whether it’s capturing precious moments or storing important data, our iPhones hold a treasure trove of memories. However, when it comes to transferring these photos to our Chromebooks, it can be a bit tricky. But fear not! In this article, I will guide you through the process of connecting your iPhone to a Chromebook and transferring your photos seamlessly.
The most straightforward method to connect your iPhone to a Chromebook and transfer photos is by using a USB cable. Here’s how you can do it:
- Start by connecting your iPhone to your Chromebook using a Lightning to USB cable.
- Once connected, your Chromebook will recognize the iPhone and prompt you with a notification.

- You can choose to import all the photos or select specific ones by marking the checkboxes next to them.

It’s important to note that this method only transfers photos from your iPhone to your Chromebook. If you want to transfer other types of files or perform more advanced tasks, such as syncing your iPhone with your Chromebook, you’ll need to explore alternative methods.
