I have a laptop running Fedora20. I have an iPhone4S. I have installed the software suggested here which allows my laptop to read the iPhone. I connect my phone to the laptop using a USB cable. I can see a bunch of files, including all the images that are on the iPhone. I can transfer images from the iPhone to the laptop.

What I want to do is transfer images from the laptop to the iPhone.

When I copy and paste images I don' get any error message, but the images never appear on the iPhone.

How can I sync these images to the iPhone?

I do not have any other OS available.

  • I can email these images to myself but it's the 21st century and that feels suboptimal. – DanBeale Feb 8 '15 at 19:39

    What is the software you installed? Please edit your question and include what you did and what you installed. Also explain exactly how you copy, into which directory and whether the files can be seen on the phone when it's connected to your computer. I understand that iOS cannot see them but are they there on the phone's filesystem? – terdon Feb 8 '15 at 19:43

    Have you tried just installing dropbox? That should take care of your transfer and storage problem. – devnull Feb 8 '15 at 19:51

    Upload them to Google Photos – Arpit Agarwal Nov 5 '17 at 8:28

You can try to use an App on the iPhone, which runs a little web server where you can upload the images from any browser to your iPhone. Both devices have to be in the same network. I know that VLC for iPhone uses this technique for video files. Just try to search the AppStore for wifi photo transfer and try a few apps.
