Transfer Photos and Videos from iPhone 5s to Mac

If you have taken a great number of photos and video clips with your iPhone 5s, you may want to get them transferred to your Mac for further editing, as there are not a few excellent photo & video editor apps such as iMovie, iPhoto and iDVD preinstalled onto the Mac.

The new iPhone 5s is powerful with the 64-bit A7 processor. Also there are countless photo and video editor apps available on the iTunes App Store. You can easily find one for your iPhone 5s in the Photo & Video category. However, the screen of iPhone 5s is just too small to process photo and video files conveniently and smoothly. The Mac machine is just perfect for editing photos and videos. Moreover, compared with Mac, the capacity of iPhone 5s is too limited to store a batch of photos and videos. You have reason to get your photos and videos from iPhone 5s to Mac to save the device storage.

To transfer photos and videos from iPhone 5s to Mac, the only tool you need is TunesGo for Mac. Now let me walk you through the photo and video transfer from iPhone 5s to Mac.
