Let's start with iCloud.
Firstly, you can turn your iPhone photos to iCloud Photos in your iPhone's Settings app - just press Sync on your device to enable storage to iCloud Photos.
Once done, your images will upload automatically, provided you're connected to Wi-Fi and have enough storage space on your iCloud account.
To reduce later inconvenience, check your available storage space on your iCloud photos before you start.
After uploading, login to iCloud from your laptop using your Apple ID. From there, you can easily access your photos and download them to your laptop's pictures folder.
Be aware, even though this method is an effective option for storing photos automatically, it may not be the fastest solution, particularly with large quantities of images.
So, if you want to transfer iPhone photos in a pinch, you may want to consider other alternatives.
While you're poking around in settings, you might also discover other gems like the Do Not Disturb feature. Curious? Take a minute to read our guide on where to find do not disturb on iPhone.
Google Photos is a solid alternative to iCloud Photo Library for backing up iPhone photos to a PC.

Unlike iCloud, Google Photos offers a whooping 15 GB of photo and video storage, allowing you to take photos without concerns over clustering your iPhone pictures folder.
Whether you aim to optimise iPhone storage or copy multiple photos, Google Photos offers a streamlined process that makes it easy to manage, import, and even delete photos.
This will then transfer iPhone photos to Google's cloud storage.
