Hi all, try as I may I cant download my pics from my iPhone 6 to my laptop with Ubuntu 18.04. It keeps telling me that the phone is empty, no pics,no videos.Is there a solution to this ? Thanks.

Do not have an iPhone, but found this on the web.

Perhaps you could do it through Bluetooth? - don’t know don’t have a mobile telephone and take pictures with a camera - sorry can’t help you

Thank you, but Bluetooth will not pair with my laptop, don’t know why.

Thanks easyt50 for the link but I can’t get that to work, I guess I will have to tote my camera around and forget the phone.

The only other solution I can think of is to use a USB cable to import them. I don’t know if the phone has a USB capability - if it does that would be the simplest solution.

HI, I can’t import them either, here is what I get from Shotwell when I try, thanks.

Did you already search for this specific error?

HI Akito, no I don’t know where to look.

@raymond,
I don’t have an iPhone to test it but do this test:

  • Connect your iPhone to your laptop
  • Open Nautilus and unmount Camera
  • Open Shotwell and try to access to iPhone

Please give the feedback if it results to access to your photos

Hi Tech_JA, I did the procedure you suggested and I still get this:Screenshot%20from%202019-09-13%2006-11-12

Would it be possible to upload your iPhone photos to a Cloud service, then download the photos to the Ubuntu laptop from the Cloud?
