How to Backup iPhone Photos

Saving cherished photos on iPhone is always dangerous. Many iPhone users got their pictures lost when syncing iPhone with iTunes or iOS updating. iPhone photos lost also happens when breaking or losing your iPhone. Hardware and cases can be replaced, but you cannot reproduce those great photos. That's why backing up iPhone photo is so important.
Usually, you’ll backup your iPhone photos to at least one of the locations: Windows, Mac, Cloud service (e.g. iCloud, Dropbox, Google+, One Drive etc). There are many ways to backup iPhone photos, but my preference is to use the iPhone Transfer as it's a more straightforward process.
