iPads are known for their crystal clear displays and people just love watching media content especially photos on the iPads. Even though the iPad is a fully featured device, it still lacks some of the features that your computer has. For example, you can’t edit your photos on your iPad with as much precision as you can do on a real computer. Therefore, many users transfer their photos to a PC for tasks like editing and sometimes even viewing the photos on a large display.

If your entire photo album is saved on your iPad, you can have it easily transferred to your laptop or PC running Windows 10. The Windows 10 OS comes preloaded with an app called Photos that lets you easily import photos from external devices like your iPad.

The following guide shows how you can transfer photos from an iPad to a laptop or PC that runs Windows 10:
