Default Another Marketing Move by Apple?

So Wifie has an 64GB iPhone 8 (for now - when that shit breaks it's getting replaced with a De-Googled Android). This morning it started telling her that her internal storage was full, so she wanted to tranfer 5 years' worth of photos off of the phone to her Windows 10 machine. Should be easy, right?

With an Android phone you simply plug the phone in to a USB port and you can drag-and-drop your files all day long. When you plug in this iPhone nothing shows up until you run the iTunes app - then the phone shows up as a device in the File Explorer.

On the phone the photos are stored in a folder called DCIM which in turn has a bunch of subfolders named according to the date the photos were taken. However, when I try to drag the DCIM folder off the phone onto the PC the transfer chugs away for a while and then mysteriously dies part way through. No error message, just disappears.

If I go into the DCIM folder I can drag-and-drop each of the subfolders individually and the transfer succeeds, but that's a tedious pain in the ass.

But I bet if I sign up for iCloud all 3700 of those files will upload seamlessly to Apple's servers. I wonder how many people just give up on this shit and sign up for iCloud just to transfer their pictures off their fucking phones?

All my photos are shared seamlessly across all my devices. No problem.

Never have a problem transferring photos, did a little over 80GB when I upgraded to the 13. I also put them to my computer, a windows 11 machine and the iPad without a hitch.

Now back up in time to when I had the POS Samclown phone and I about took a hammer to it. The last Android POS I wanted to own.

Each person can bad mouth a phone or service as they need to. Just because you have issues with transferring photo's or opening an APP doesn't make the system a POS for everyone.

My W10 HP is same way. Can get the photos no problem. Little bit slower than my MacBook Pro and not quite as seamless, but I haven't lost anything. One buck a month for 50Gb is not too bad. If you need some foil for a cap, that's even more expensive.

I'm still using an iPhone 6 that I bought 7 years ago. I have no problems managing pictures, and I don't even know what the "iCloud" is. I suspect that some of you are making this shit a lot harder than it needs to be.

Although, I will admit that Phred's experience might be different since he watches a lot of gay porn, and I don't watch any. Nor do I swap dick pics with my guy friends, which I'm pretty sure he does.
