I have an iPhone 7 where I want to transfer 1000+ Photos from my Whatsapp Media file to my Computer. However, I did not enable the auto-download in Whatsapp and thus the photos don’t appear in my Photo App. I’ve tried going into my iPhone itself but can only see the photos in the Photo App. How can I save my Whatsapp photos on iPhone to computer more efficiently as it’ll take years to sort out the photos in my entire collection.
