The time it takes to AirDrop 1,000 photos will depend on various factors, such as the size of the images, the speed of the devices, and the strength of the wireless connection. On average, AirDrop can transfer around 1-2 photos per second. So, if we estimate around 1.5 photos per second, transferring 1,000 photos would take approximately 666 seconds or about 11 minutes.

However, it's important to note that this is just an estimate and the actual time may vary based on the factors mentioned earlier. Transferring a large number of photos at once can put a strain on battery life and may impact the performance of the devices, so it's best to be prepared for this possibility.

Using AirDrop to share pictures is a convenient option, as it has no limitations on file size or the number of pictures. However, AirDrop may reduce the quality of photos if your iPhone is set to optimize storage space. To maintain the quality of your photos, you should try an alternative way of photo transfer with a USB cable.

EaseUS MobiMover will migrate your pictures and videos without losing the original quality via a USB cable. EaseUS MobiMover lets you migrate data between iPhone and computer, external hard drive, USB flash drive, and other storage devices. If you have a lot of pictures and videos to back up, this program can transfer all of them at once.

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch EaseUS MobiMover, a reliable tool for data transfer.

Step 2. Choose Phone to PC > Select Pictures > Click Transfer.

Step 3. Then, it will start the photo transfer process. Do not use your phones until the data transfer is completed.
