Just switch over from an old iPhone to the new iPhone 7/7 Plus and want to transfer photos from old iPhone to the new one?

Want to share some great photos with family or friends but don't know how to share photos from iPhone 6 to iPhone 7?

Transferring photos from iPhone to iPhone is actually a simple process. You can send photos from one iPhone to another by using AirDrop, or setting up Apple's Photo Stream service, or using FonePaw iOS Transfer to copy photos from iPhone to iPhone directly.

While using Airdrop or Photos Stream to share photos has some limitations, for example, to share content with AirDrop, both iPhone should be iPhone 5 or later; to transfer photos from iPhone to iPhone with Photo Stream, both devices need to sign in to iCloud with the same Apple ID, FonePaw iOS Transfer can transfer photos from iPhone to iPhone without any restrictions. This software supports all iPhone models, including iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 3GS and it supports sending photos from your iPhone to anothe iPhone with different Apple ID.
