If living through the technology boom of the early 2000s taught society anything, it’s that no piece of tech is completely trustworthy; that’s why it’s a good idea to keep your data backed up on more than one device, but how can you easily transfer files between your smartphone and PC? Without much effort, it turns out.
Nothing Lasts Forever
Robert Frost said that nothing gold can stay, and as it turns out, that logic applies to technology, too. No matter how new and advanced your smartphone or computer is right now, it will eventually become outdated and stop working.
Don’t place all your eggs in one basket—share data between these two main pieces of tech in your life so you know you won’t lose it should one of them crash.
Wireless and Stress Free
The great thing about the nearly ubiquitous interconnectivity of the web is that virtually every device allows for the option of backing up to a cloud; from there, it’s easy to download files and save them locally.
If you have an iPhone, utilizing the cloud is the easiest way to wirelessly transfer data. You can download the iCloud app even if you have a Windows computer, and log in using your Apple ID.
If you have an Android, one of the easiest ways to transfer data to your PC other than backing it up to a cloud and then downloading is by finding an app dedicated to this purpose. So long as your phone and PC are connected to the same WiFi, the app should walk you through the entire process.
With all of the advances of modern tech, you should be able to access your data from all of your devices, and wireless transfers make that aim easy.
