The Windows Photos app now has a new iCloud Photos integration. This feature recently announced by Microsoft has made the iPhone transfer process much simpler. However, there is no word on when Microsoft will make this feature available for the stable version as it is currently in beta testing.
Moreover, users can transfer photos via legacy data transfer technology as well as iCloud integration capability. Users can transfer photos and videos using cloud storage as well.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial for transferring photos from iPhone to Windows:
1. Use the cable to connect iPhone to Windows computer.
2. After connecting, unlock your phone, and Windows will immediately recognize your iPhone in File Explorer.
3. Double-click the iPhone icon in File Explorer after opening it. Select the camera folder, then paste the photos into your laptop.
4. As an alternative, users can move all their photos to Google Drive, OneDrive, or any other cloud storage.
In other news, tech giant Microsoft has added a new feature to Microsoft Authenticator, the Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) app, to stop spam attempts.
According to a report by Live Mint, Microsoft has included “number matching” in push notifications, which will help prevent MFA attacks that rely on spam push notifications.
The Authenticator app used will prompt you to enter the number displayed on the login screen rather than simply clicking Agree when approving the MFA request when Match Number is enabled. This feature will be useful for administrators whose users were not prepared for an MFA attack.
