How to Transfer Videos to Dell Laptop from iPhone FAQs

1. Can I AirDrop to my Dell laptop?

Unfortunately, you can't. This is because AirDrop is designed to transfer files between Apple products: you can AirDrop photos from iPhone to iPhone/iPad/Mac, but you cannot do it across platforms. Dell runs the Windows operating system, while your iPhone runs iOS (Mac runs macOS), AirDrop is incompatible with Windows.

2. Why won't my iPhone connect to my Dell laptop?

First, you have to ensure you've unlocked your iPhone and trusted this computer. If you don't enter the passcode on your iPhone to unlock the screen, your laptop cannot recognize your device.

Then, check the USB cable. To ensure your cable is workable, you can change another cable or device to connect your laptop.

Finally, check the USB port. Maybe there is something wrong with your USB port, such as too much dust there, so that your laptop cannot detect your device. To solve this, connect the cable to another port on your laptop.
