The iPhone is a popular mobile phone introduced in 2007 that can stream video, carry music and movies and carry out the functions of a normal cell phone. The iPhone also allows users to store their digital photos for viewing and sharing. Learn how to load photos to your iPhone and carry your personal photos everywhere you go.

Connect the iPhone to your computer with the USB cable. Make sure your iPhone is on.

Open iTunes. If you do not have iTunes on your computer, you can download and install it for free from the link in the "Resources" section of this article.

Click on the iPhone icon under the "Devices" section on the tray on the left side of iTunes. When the iPhone screen opens, select the "Photos" tab.

If you are a Mac user, select the "Sync photos from iPhoto" box; if you are a PC user, use the drop-down menu next to the "Sync photo from:" prompt to choose the location of your photos.

Select the "Sync" option when you have found the location of the photos you wish to import to the iPhone. Any new photos will be added to your iPhone automatically from this location whenever you connect the device to your computer.
