Need to Save iPhone Photos then to Delete them to Free up Space

export pictures from iPhone to computer
Backup iPhone photos to computer

Scene 1: My iPhone 4 is running so slow as it has almost run out of storage. Can anybody help me backup/transfer these photos from my iPhone to PC or somewhere else like external hard drives.  I want to save them & then delete from my iPhone to free up the memory?

Scene 2: I have a lot of photos 'cause my husband into photography, we travel a lot, and somehow thousands of photos he took, plus ones I took, plus videos I took, ended up on my iPhone. And I can't take any new photos or videos...or even add an app for that matter until I free up some space on my iPhone.

We've already taken two brief trips where I wanted to use my camera and couldn't...and I was looking for a quick way to copy my iPhone picture to computer and then delete them to take more new ones because we are leaving for another trip in a week, and another one right after that.

How to Backup iPhone Photos/Pictures to Computer


In many cases, we, just as the users in the mentioned cases, want to delete the iPhone photos to free up the space to store new photos or to install other application. But we don’t want to lose the photos as well. So the only thing you can do is to transfer the photos before deleting them. As on iPhone, we have 3 methods to backup our iPhone photos: iCloud & iTunes & 3rd party backup tool. Let’s have a detailed look at how they work respectively.

Method 1: Backup iPhone Photos Using iCloud


iCloud backup is favored by most iPhone users because of it convenience and easy-to-access. You can make the backup as long as your iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi. And it is free under the space limitation. Learn details about iCloud backup, you can click here.

Method 2: Backup Photos from iPhone to Computer using iTunes


Only 5 GB is free provided by iCloud. This is too little for photo especially video storage. And the backup is saved on cloud, you have no entity, have you been uneasy with its existence to some extent? If it was me, I would. So, iTunes has become another choice for some users.

Honestly, iTunes is a great choice to backup our iPhone data and we can find the backup folder on the computer. Also, the operation is easy and no special tech is needed. What you need to backup iPhone to iTunes is a computer on which the latest iTunes is installed and your iPhone (with the digital cable). Lear more about backing up iPhone photos to iTunes from here.

Note: Where is iTunes backup located on different OS?

From the location, you can find your backup folder and the backup time. But have you noticed that, if you click the file to open it, you just can’t do this directly? Yes, this is because these iTunes backup files are .SQLITE_DB files which can’t be viewed. Does this also touch your sense of files existence? If so, read on to learn the third method.

Method 3: Backup/Transfer Pictures from iPhone to Computer/Mac with 3rd party Application – Tenorshare iPhone Data Backup Software


Since the two mentioned methods to backup iPhone photos are free, they have limitations. Maybe they are not what you want. Even the backup is made, you can’t view your photos directly. So how can we copy our photos to computer then the pictures can be viewed just as its original state? We have this iPhone Photo Backup tool – Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery.

It is originally designed to recover lost files from iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, all iOS devices. Since we can preview the files before recovery, and the files including the existing ones on your iPhone, when clicking “Recover” button on the program, you can get all the ticked files saved on computer.

What’s more, you can save the backed up files as txt or excel files, .jpg files for pictures. So you can view them directly as it originally was. Is this amazing? The tool is easy-to-use, you just need to do it yourself. More fantastic functions are waiting for you to explore. Go ahead.

iTunes Prompted to “Restore”, I Lost All My iPhone Contacts and Pictures

 

Stupid to Press “Restore” – iPhone Pictures and Contacts Lost


So my old iPhone (3GS) which I'd had for a long long time had been linked to my laptop computer but broke. Then I got a new one--an iPhone 4.

I set it up, and began rebuilding my pictures and contacts again from scratch. A month and a half go by and I've never plugged it into my computer, but tonight I try and add my music to it by connecting it to iTunes.

This is where the trouble all began: I was prompted to make a choice before anything could be done with my iTunes library:
- Restore old settings
- Set up as new phone
- And something else...

I didn't know what any of this meant so I chose to restore thinking "whatever, just get it to work please...."

And like that, all of the contents on my new phone had been replaced by that of my old phone. I lost more than a month of iPhone pictures and all contacts I'd gotten in the last month.

What to Do If Lost iPhone Data Like Contacts, Photos and More?


We can’t avoid iPhone data loss since it is too hard for us to make through in unexpected situations like the mentioned case. We just want iPhone to be working, but accidents happen beyond our control. Now, what can we do to get the lost data back? Don’t worry, we have remedies. Just in this case, we have 2 methods.

Method 1: Restore iPhone Pictures and Contacts from iTunes


This is free and easy if you have a good habit to backup your iPhone to iTunes. iTunes allows you to restore your iPhone from the backup you have created. So if you have an iTunes backup to restore from, just connect your iPhone with iTunes -> Preferences - > Devices, choose the backup listed in the window. Then scroll down to “Restore from Backup”. Note that this will replace all your iPhone data with the files in the backup. That is, your iPhone is restored to the state you last synced it.

Method 2: Recover Lost iPhone Contacts and Photos from Device without Backup


In most cases, we don’t have a recent iTunes backup. So if you restore your iPhone from a very old backup, you still lost much recent data on iPhone. So how can you recover all your data recently on iPhone and won’t lose any data? This is easy indeed. All you need is an iPhone data recovery, which is able to retrieve lost data from iPhone (device) without backup.

Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery is such one tool. It helps you recover iPhone data directly from device, no need of any backup.

This is how to use it to recover iPhone contacts and photos.

1. Firstly, download and install the iPhone data recovery software named. Before you decided to get the full version, download the free trial to have a try. You cannot perform the recovery with free trial but you can preview your lost files.

2. After the right installation, open it on your PC then connect iPhone to PC (also to the program)

3. Once it shows that your iPhone is successfully connected, just enter the DFU mode for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. If you are using an iPhone 4S/5/5S/5C, DFU mode is not needed, which saves a lot of efforts. (It may take up several minutes to enter the DFU mode)

4. Then it takes time to scan your complete iPhone data and show up all the folders on the screen. As the scan completes, you can easily see all the deleted photos and can select the ones you need to recover.

5. When you selected the ones that you want to recover, simply click the “Recover” on the right bottom corner. Specify a save path for the recovered files.

6. Now disconnect your iPhone and open the folder saved your recovered files, you will notice that the photos that you selected would have been recovered.

Actually, I have demonstrated how to recover deleted photos after iOS 7 update before.  It is similar to recover iPhone lost data in different situations.  All iPhone models are supported: iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4,3GS, etc.
