Solved How to import a photo from an iPad to iPhone?

Specs: windows 10, 2.3/8
I have a FaceTime photo in Photos on my iPad that I have tried to send/transfer to Photos on my iPhone 8+ but have been unsuccessful. I tried sending the photo as an email attachment but that didn’t work. (I have the most current iOS on both devices.)

Thank you.

I don’t know if iTunes will do it, but possibly a third party app will.

Transfer them from iPad to a computer and then from there to your iPhone (via iTunes).

I have used iMazing to great effect, and prefer it iTunes much of the time.

Comes in Mac and windows versions; and does everything iTunes does, and more.

The other approach which I have found useful is something like shareit.

Install it on any device you wish to send to or from. It works across iOS devices and to/from computers too.

It uses bluetooth - no internet required.

It’s free, and so far been very useful...

Shareit likely is the first option to test?

There are different ways to transfer photo from iPad to iPhone such as e-mail, Airdrop, SMS, Dropbox, 3rd-party tool, etc. Follow one of them shown below.

You can AirDrop photos to your friends, relatives or others without network. What you need to do is open AirDrop in both devices. Detailed steps are shown as below.

1. To know how to share photos from iPad to iPhone, you need to open “Control Center” by swiping up from the bottom and tap “AirDrop” to activate it on iPhone and iPad. In the meantime, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be opened automatically.

2. In the pop-up dialogue, choose “Contact Only”.

3. Now open Photos app and tap on “Albums” on iPad. Choose “Edit > All Photos” and then click on “Share” button.

4. Tap on the name of your iPhone and your iPhone will receive a message to ask you to agree the transferring. Agree it and it will start to send photos from iPad to iPhone. And you simply learned how to send photos from iPad to iPhone via AirDrop.

Thank you for your assistance. I had already made the transfer using shareit but wanted to try AirDrop. That worked as well. Now I have two methods for file transfers.

Thanks again.

I got into using shareit when I found that Airdrop wasn’t compatible with some operating systems.

But good to know it does work well nonetheless.
