How to Send Pictures from iPhone to iPhone X/11

Sep 19,2019 • Filed to: iPhone 8 • Proven solutions

My mother is a very nostalgic person. She loves to spend time narrating to us stories of the times gone by. From fishing trips, ball games to barbecues, she loves to reminisce about the happy times we used to, and still do, as a family. She also loved to collect pictures and while it may not seem such an arduous task now, think of when pictures had to be clicked, developed and stored carefully.


Till date she maintains dozens of old albums and she absolutely adores them but the advantages of digital media convinced her to ask me to scan all the old photographs and give them to her on a hard disc. It took a fair amount of time as I used my iPhone to scan all the pictures but it was worth it to see that smile on her face.


However, she recently managed to drop the hard disc in water and I am faced with scanning all those pictures again. Thankfully, I still have those pictures on my old iPhone and I decided to keep a copy on my new iPhone X/11/11 Pro as well. But I did not know how to send pictures from iPhone to iPhone X/11/11 Pro. I asked around and one of my friends was kind enough to tell me of a couple of methods to do so easily.

Part 1: How to Send Pictures from iPhone to iPhone X/11/11 Pro

A great tool which she told me about was MobileTrans phone clone. I was a little hesitant at first thinking that I would be faced with a complex program but I was amazed by its simplicity. The user interface is really friendly and simple to browse through. And the best part is that it supports all kinds of devices, be it Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, LG or any of the most popular brands.

I have always felt that more than the brand, changing the OS is especially tricky but MobileTrans works across platforms like iOS, Android, Symbian and WinPhone making the transition much easier.

The second option to send pictures from iPhone to iPhone X/11/11 Pro is by using the Airdrop feature on your phone. To use this feature, you must have the Airdrop feature on both phones. Use the following steps to send photos from iPhone to iPhone X/11/11 Pro:

If it were up to me, I would most definitely choose the former simply because it is easy and works across many platforms so that I do not have to use a different method each time I have to transfer photos from a different device. Another factor you must consider is that Airdrop is a recent feature and is available only if your iPhone is 5th generation and above. In case of older iPhones, MobileTrans phone clone is the only option.


With the help of MobileTrans phone clone, I managed to save myself a few hours of scanning the old photos for my mother and I would urge you to give it a try. It is very fast, convenient and easy to use and do pass it along to your friends as well who might be looking for a way to send photos from iPhone to the iPhone X/11/11 Pro!
