Apple really does the great work on the smart phones, like the iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X which all attracts more and more viewers. They can record the 4K videos, wonderful photos, you can enjoy the HD videos on iPhone. Are you satisfied with the iPhone memory? For people who likes to take the videos or download the wonderful movies and store in iPhone, I am afraid the iPhone memory is not enough. If you don't want to directly delete them but also want to get more storage space, transferring videos from iPhone to Mac is the best option, Mac can support the large storage space.

We can's connect the iPhone and drag the videos to Mac directly, you must need one third software which can be the bridge between iPhone and Mac, I have collected many ways to transfer the videos form iPhone to Mac, for example: You can use the  iCloud Photo Library, you also can use the AnyTrans, or the iOS Transfer, iTunes etc. I take the iOS Transfer and iTues as the example and tell you how to transfer videos from iPhone to Mac.

NOTE: iTunes store video format

  1.  iTunes supports any video format that works with QuickTime and files purchased or downloaded from iTunes store. That means if your video files have a .mov, .m4v, or .mp4 file extension, generally you can play them in iTunes.
  2. There are also limitations on video codecs, sample rate, etc. So if your .mov, .m4v or .mp4 files are rejected by iTunes, that may be because of a codec problem.
  3. iTunes supported audio formats include: MP3, AAC, AIFF, WAV, Audible .aa files and iTunes purchased M4A and M4P music files
