Microsoft has released an app called "Photos Companion" that makes it possible to move video from your iPhone to your PC wirelessly. But the steps are complex.

Step 2: Update Your PC Software

You should update the Photos app on your PC. To do that, press the Windows button on your keyboard, then type "Microsoft Store" and hit enter. From there, search for "Microsoft Photos," then click the first result under "Apps".

Step 3: Open the Photos App on Your PC

The Photos app comes pre-installed on all Windows machines, but you might not know where it is. To access this app, press the Windows button on your keyboard and type in "Photos," then hit enter.

Step 4: Enable Preview Settings in Photos

You'll need to set your Photos app to use "Preview" features. To do that, click the three-dot menu button in the top-right corner of the main Photos window on your PC, then choose "Settings."

Step 5: Get Your Computer Ready to Import Video

From the main menu in the Windows Photos app, click the tab in the top-right corner that says "Import." Next, select "From mobile over Wi-Fi." A QR code will appear on your computer that you'll scan with your phone in the next step. At this point, make sure that both your computer and your phone are on the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 6: Scan the QR Code with Your Phone

Now, open up Photos Companion on your iPhone. On the main screen, tap "Send photos." Afterwards, scan the QR code by holding your phone up to your computer's screen. A green box will appear around the code on your phone when it's been recognized.
