How to Transfer From Iphone To Iphone

One of the possible tasks for the owner of an iPhone or iPad is to transfer onto it downloaded on a computer or laptop for later viewing on the go, waiting or somewhere else. Unfortunately, to do this simply by copying the files “like a USB flash drive” in the case of iOS does not work. However, there are plenty of ways to copy a movie.

In this beginner’s guide, there are two ways to transfer files from a Windows computer to an iPhone and iPad from a computer: the official (and its limitation) and my preferred method without iTunes (including via Wi-Fi), as well as briefly about other possible options. Note: the same methods can be used on computers with MacOS (but it is sometimes more convenient to use Airdrop for them).

Copy from computer to iPhone and iPad in iTunes

Apple has provided only one option for copying media files, including from a Windows or MacOS computer to iPhones and iPads, using iTunes (I assume that iTunes is already installed on your computer).

The main limitation of the method is support only for the formats.Mov.M4v and.Mp4. Over, for the latter case, the format is not always supported (it depends on the codecs used, the most popular is H.264, it is supported).

To copys using iTunes, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Connect the device, if iTunes does not start automatically, start the program.
  2. Select your iPhone or iPad from the list of devices.

  3. In the “On my device” section, select “Movies” and simply drag the desired files from the folder on the computer to the list of movies on the device (you can also select from the File menu. “Add File to Library”.
  4. If the format is not supported, you will see the message “Some of these files have not been copied because they cannot be played on this iPad (iPhone).
  5. After adding files to the list, click the “Sync” button at the bottom. When synchronization is complete, you can turn off the device.

After the is copied to the device, you can watch them in the application on it.

Using VLC to copy movies to iPad and iPhone via cable and Wi-Fi

The main advantage of this and other such applications is the seamless playback of almost all popular formats, including mkv, mp4 with codecs other than H.264 and others.

After installing the application, there are two ways to copy files to the device: using iTunes (but already without format restrictions) or via Wi-Fi on the local network (i.E. Both the computer and the phone or tablet must be connected to the same router for transfer )

Copy to VLC using iTunes

  1. Connect your iPad or iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes.
  2. Select your device from the list, and then in the Settings section, select Programs.
  3. Scroll down the program page and select VLC.
  4. Drag and drop the files into “VLC Documents” or click “Add Files”, select the files you need and wait for them to be copied to the device.

After you finish copying, you can watch downloaded movies or others in the VLC player on your phone or tablet.

Transfer to iPhone or iPad over Wi-Fi in VLC

Note: for the method to work, both the computer and the iOS device must be connected to the same network.

  1. Launch the VLC app, open the menu and turn on “Access via WiFi”.
  2. An address will appear next to the switch, which should be entered in any browser on the computer.
  3. Opening this address, you will see a page where you can simply drag and drop files, or click on the “Plus” button and specify the desired files.
  4. Wait for the download to finish (in some browsers, the progress bar and percentages are not displayed, but the download is in progress).

Once completed, the can be viewed in the VLC on the device.

Note: I noticed that sometimes after downloading VLC does not display the downloaded files in the playlist (although it takes up space on the device). I experimentally determined that this happens with long file names in Russian with punctuation marks. I did not reveal any clear patterns, but renaming the file to something “simpler” helps to solve the problem.

Hello. Should I change the file extension? Will it be copied?

06/17/2017 at 08:44

If the codec is supported. Those. What’s important is that it’s “inside” the file and this is checked when copying: that is, for example, one.Mp4 can be copied, and the other not.

Forget iTunes. ITools is the solution to all problems. Do not consider it an advertisement I use and I recommend it to all Apple water.

Hello! My way is using the nPlayer player. It seems to be paid, but it plays all the files. And I never upload them to the ipad, there are many network protocols available in the Network tab: I use SMB / CIFS, but there are Webdav, FTP, DLNA, several cloud services. There are a lot of things there, it’s very convenient to control, there is post-processing (if, for example, the is too dark, it’s easy to fix it), the choice of audio tracks, subtitles, sound and brightness adjustment by swipes on the screen on the right and left, respectively, etc. There were problems with dts codec in mkv, but I didn’t have to deal with them (I had to pay extra). For some reason, there are few reviews on this player network. Good luck everyone!

Hello. Sometimes you still need to download: for example, when there is a long flight on an airplane (after this I just wrote an article).

12/16/2018 at 13:26

Thank you. You really helped! I’ve been familiar with VLC for a long time and I like this method more)
Please tell me, if a movie was transferred (synchronized) via iTunes (without VLC) and is displayed in the device’s library, does it mean that it is in the iPad’s memory? If so, how to remove it from there or how to find it on the iPad?

12/16/2018 at 16:50

Hello. Yes, it’s in the iPad’s memory, but it is deleted if I’m not mistaken (I can’t check now, but I don’t remember exactly right away), right in the library itself.

03/29/2019 at 17:47

Thank you so much! Helped a lot! The best way to download!

06/25/2019 at 10:08

I wanted to upload severals in this way:

In the “On my device” section, select “Movies” and simply drag the desired files from the folder on the computer to the list of movies on the device (you can also select from the File menu. “Add File to Library”.

Nothing is loading!
And films, too, are not transferred, you do not agree on something.

06/25/2019 at 14:28

Maybe it’s in an unsupported format? Then use the method with VLC. It plays and transfers everything.

The best way to transfer ANY (.) Files to your tablet is to throw Apple in the trash and switch to android.
We pull out the memory card from Samsung, insert it into the computer and rewrite everything we need))
