You do not need any special software to transfer photos and videos from your iPhone to your Windows product key computer, even without iTunes, and still get the photos if you follow the instructions.
Use File Explorer or Windows Explorer
Connect your iPhone to your computer with the Lightning-to-USB cable. The first time you connect it to your computer, you will see a popup window asking for credibility verification for the computer to access the file, including photos and videos. Touch Trust or Allow to have your computer access your photos. You may have to unlock your iPhone before seeing this popup.
The iPhone will appear as a new device in This PC in the File Explorer on Windows 10 or Computer in Windows Explorer on Windows 7 home premium product key. Click here and double-click it. If you do not see the iPhone under Computer or This PC, unplug the iPhone cable, plug it in and make sure it is unlocked.
Double-click the DCIM folder inside iPhone. Photos and videos are stored in the 100APPLE folder. If you have a lot of photos and videos you will see other folders named 101APPLE, 102APPLE ... If you use iCloud to store your photos, you will also see folders named 100Cloud, 101Cloud ...
The standard DCIM directory is the only thing you can access on the iPhone, while other files are not. You will see the image with .JPG, while the video is .MOV and the screenshot is .PNG. You can double-click them to view right from iPhone. You can also copy them to your computer by dragging / dropping or copy / paste. If you delete an item in the DCIM folder, it will be deleted from the iPhone's memory.
To import everything from iPhone, just copy / paste or drag / drop the 100APPLE folder inside the DCIM folder. You can also get the entire DCIM directory if you want. If you want to keep it on your iPhone, copy instead of moving.
If you see the files have extension. HIEC means iPhone has used the new HEIF image format. This is the default setting of iOS 11, and you must use third-party software to view them on Windows.
You can also disable HEIF on iPhone by going to Settings> Photos, scroll down and then touching Automatic under Transfer to Mac or PC. iPhone will automatically transfer images to .JPEG when importing them to a PC. If you choose Keep Originals, iPhone will give you the original .HEIC file.
Import photos with Windows Photos
Any application that imports photos from a digital camera or USB device can also import photos from the iPhone. iPhone displays a DCIM folder, so it looks like any other digital camera to the software on your computer. Just like when using the Windows file manager, just connect it with the Lightning-to-USB cable and press Trust on your phone.
Any other application that provides the function Import From Camera or "Import From USB" can also work with the iPhone. Many other photo and imaging programs offer this feature.
Synchronize photos with iCloud Photo Library
If you do not want to connect your iPhone to your computer with a cable, you can also use online photo synchronization services. This is not just downloading photos from the iPhone to the cloud, it will also download photos from the cloud to the computer. You will end up with an online backup copy and a copy stored on your computer.
You can then install iCloud for Windows, sign in with your Apple ID, and enable the "Photos" feature in your iCloud console. Click the Options button to control the location where the image is saved on your computer and adjust other settings.
Your photos are automatically uploaded to iCloud Photo Library, then iCloud software automatically downloads a copy of them to your computer.
