How to Transfer Videos from Computer to iPhone
Updated on May 09, 2017: Fixes some errors.
The long journey is boring. But watching a movie with iPhone X or iPhone 7/7 Plus during the journey sounds good. Many people want to transfer movies, TV Shows, and other videos on their computer to iPhone to enjoy these videos without the limitation of time and place. Now, the question is how to transfer videos from PC to iPhone.
Of course you can connect your iPhone and computer and sync videos to iPhone through iTunes. But it would be annoying if iTunes keeps popping up message which saying that the delete of old videos which come from other iTunes library will be deleted first. Email is also an option, but it takes long time and it has the size limitation.
FonePaw iOS Transfer is much simple and convenient. There is no size limitation and you can transfer new videos from computer to iPhone without needing to delete the old ones. This lets you transfer videos/movies from computer to iPhone without using iTunes. Also, without needing any file format converter, it will automatically convert the incompatible video files to the formats which are compatible with your iPhone.
