What's the Easiest Way to Transfer All Photos on iPhone to External Hard Drive?

I have used up 217GB of my 256GB iPhone 12 pro, most of which is photos and videos. I have plenty of external hard drives, and I would love to transfer every photo/video I have onto a hard drive so I can delete them from my phone and free up a ton of space. How should I go about doing this? For reference again, I have an iPhone 12 Pro, and my computer is a MacBook Pro 2018.

The easiest way to transfer all of your iPhone photos to an external hard drive is to use third-party iOS data transfer software. EaseUS MobiMover is such a tool that can transfer photos and videos in your camera roll and download multimedia files from the Internet to external hard drives, such as Seagate and SanDisk.

Step 1. Install EaseUS MobiMover on your MacBook and launch it.

Step 2. Connect your iPhone 12 Pro and external hard drive to your computer via cables.

Step 3. Choose Phone to PC mode, select Photos, modify the location path, and click Transfer.

Then, all you have to do is wait for the photo transfer to complete. When the process is done, you can go to the location to check whether all photos are transferred. Finally, you can go to your Photos app and delete all the photos from your iPhone to free up space.

Things to Consider When Transferring Photos from iPhone to External Hard Drive:

  • Ensure you have a workable USB cable to connect your iPhone and external hard drive to your MacBook.
  • If you have a large amount of data to transfer, remember to charge your iPhone first in case the long-time process drains out your battery.
  • Ensure your external hard drive has enough space to store the transferred photos and videos.
