There are multiple ways to transfer images from your iPad to your PC. But there is one tool
offering you the most flexibility and simplicity among all the other competitors.

I’m talking about iMazing, a backup tool for Apple devices from the Swiss software studios of DigiDNA. The power of third-party really plays its wildcard out with this tool. Easy to use and efficient back-up technology from the year 2020 makes competitors look a little old-fashioned.

The cool thing and definitely unique property about iMazing is its availability meaning it’s cross-platform, enabling you iPad photo backups on basically every machine. On top of that, we all know how outdated wires are. Well, iMazing knows that as well, offering all of the above-mentioned magic truly wireless. You want the photo transfer to happen real fast and easy?

Then the following is for you!

Step 1: Download and install iMazing

iCloud: Use Apple Cloud Service

Using Apple's cloud to transfer your iPad pictures to your PC is as easy as taking an afternoon nap. Apple engineers worked hard to make the following process as simple and fast as possible.

With its simplicity though, there comes a lack of flexibility, meaning compared to iMazing you get fewer choices when it comes to transferring pictures from your iPad to your PC or Mac. But let’s stop talking and start doing. Do you want to use iCloud? Alright, follow the steps down below to get done with this real fast!

Step 1: Get iCloud

You’re a Mac user? Well, you’re already done with this step, you can go ahead with the next one. If you’re a PC guy though, there is still some work to do. We need to get the software up and running on your Windows machine. Fortunately, we’ve already done the Googling for you!

Get a fresh copy of the latest iCloud software here!

iCloud for Windows

If your download is ready, just install the software as usual! Let’s go ahead with the next step.

Step 2: Launch iCloud

Open up iCloud, if you’re a Mac user you’ve probably already done the setup. For all the first-time users you simply have to sign in with your Apple-ID and the corresponding password.

Transfer Photos from iPad to PC

If that’s been done, click on the “Option” button next to “Photos” and uncheck the “Upload new photos from my PC” checkmark, this will prevent you from ending up having unwanted photos and data in your cloud.

Step 3: Upload Photos from iPad to iCloud

Before the upload happens, you got to make sure iCloud is enabled for your photos. Go to the settings of your iPad and dive right into the photo section of it. If not already activated, click on that “iCloud Photos” toggle switch and you’re basically done!

All of them from your gallery automatically end up in your iCloud account. Now you can access your cloud from the installed iCloud program on your PC/Mac and simply drag & drop the pictures into any folder.

Well, you’re done! That was easy, wasn’t it?


Your pictures are now in a safe place, you’ve successfully transferred your important
memories from your iPad to PC/Mac using one of the above-mentioned fast methods.
Compared to iMazing, the iCloud method lacks flexibility but shines with it’s stupidly easy to use interface and striking fast backup method. Both options get the job done and are the
fastest and easiest ways for data transfer in the industry.

So, that’s been said, we’re glad you transferred successfully and the process was so easy that you don’t have to come back to this article ever again. Cheers!
