I have an iPhone 12 where I want to transfer 1000+ Photos from my Whatsapp Media file to my Computer. However, I did not turn on the auto-download in Whatsapp and thus the photos failed to appear in my Photo App. What is the easiest way to transfer photos from iPhone to Mac as it might take hours to sort out the photos in my entire collection?

If you have sufficient iPhone storage, turning on the Whatsapp Media file automatic download feature will prevent you from the problem. But in fact, your iPhone might be always in a storage crisis. Besides, downloading WhatsApp media (as you mentioned 1,000 pictures) from WhatsApp web may be difficult and time-consuming for you, even though it’s a wise choice to start using this feature next time.
