Step 1. Run AnyTrans on your PC/Mac > Connect both of your iPhone 8/X and iPad to it > Scroll down to category page.
Step 2. Under Photos, choose the photo file you would like to move to iPad. Here we take Camera Roll as an example.
Step 3. Select the photos you would like to move from iPhone 8/X to iPad > Click on Send to Device, and it will start transferring.
Method 2. How to Transfer Photos from iPhone X/8 to iPad Using Photo Stream
Photo Stream , actually called My Photo Stream, is a great function in iCloud. My Photo Stream uploads your most recent photos so you can view and import them to all of your iOS devices. So you enable it on both iPhone 8/X and iPad, and you can check your iPhone 8/X photos on your iPad. But how to enable it?
Open the Settings app on your iPhone 8/X > Tap Sign in to your iPhone > Log in with your Apple ID > Tap “iCloud” > Select “Photos” > Toggle “My Photo Stream” on. Repeat the same process on your iPad.
Before applying this method, you need to be aware of something about Photo Stream:
- My Photo Stream does not support Live Photos uploading.
- Only when your iPhone 8/X is connected to WiFi, it will start uploading pictures.
- Photos are stored in My Photo Stream for only 30 days. And as time is up, it will delete them. Besides, it also eats iCloud storage, so if your iCloud storage is not enough, some photos will not be uploaded.
So we sincerely recommend you taking Method 1 as the best choice to transfer photos from iPhone X/8 to iPad.
Method 3. How to Transfer Photos from iPhone X/8 to iPad via AirDrop
AirDrop is another way to help you send pictures from iPhone 8/X to iPad. Open the Control Centre on both the iPhone 8/X and iPad by swiping up on your device > Press and hold on the wireless control box > Tap on AirDrop > Choose “Everyone” > Open the Photos app on the iPhone 8/X and choose the photos you want to transfer > Tap on Share button in the bottom left.
The name of your iPad should appear in the Tap To Share with AirDrop section > On the iPad tap on Accept to transfer the photo from your iPhone to the iPad.
However, AirDrop transferring speed relies on WiFi connection strongly. If your WiFi is slow, or no WiFi at all, the experience could be very bad. Besides, multiple photos transferring with AirDrop is very slow. So we recommend you move to Method 1, as the best option.
