How to Transfer Photos from iPhone/iPad to Flash Drive?

A large number of people like to use iOS devices because they are falling in love with iOS operating system for its high efficiency. The classic example is the inability to use files on your iPad, iPhone and iPod with any other media or data management tools but iTunes. In order to crack down on piracy and make it near impossible for users to indulge in illegal in-field copying, Apple rather shrewdly made it so that data, once converted to iTunes files, cannot be used in conjunction with other tools or software. But what if you want to share photos on your iDevice with other people?

Finding a Solution to Compatibility Issues

The reality is that there are many different reasons why you might want to move photos and other files from an Apple device, such as iPad, iPhone or iPod to an incompatible one like a USB flash drive. In fact, the most important reason is for security – if you do not have a secure backup copy of your iTunes library, you risk losing the entire collection in the event of a system failure or iTunes crash. A USB flash drive would be a good choice for saving your precious photos. To achieve that, you need to copy photos from iDevice to computer and then from computer to another flash drive.
