A way to preview iPhone photos?

Post by coderabbit » Sun Aug 18, 2019 8:09 pm

I have been a Windows user. In Windows, when I connect my iPhone to PC, I can preview my iPhone photos in file explorer with the big icons.

In linux, the photos don't show in the icons.

I have to copy/move the photos to a local hard drive first before the icons will show the photos.

I have been googling for a solution and found nothing working yet...

Is there a way to preview the iPhone photos as icons in linux before copying them to a local disk?

Short answer. No. Long answer: Until Apple get away from their "proprietary" software and allow anyone to read their OS, No.
Kernel: 4.15.0-46-generic x86_64 bits
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop HP-ProBook-470-G2 8Gb RAM SSD
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
+ three other Mint machines
Out of my mind - please leave a message

That's too bad. It's not user friendly for non-tech people. This will be one of the reasons that people/family can't switch to linux just yet.

You're right, Apple is making this quite user unfriendly. But then, they don't want people to switch to Linux.
