Solution: Get your Photos off your iPad without iTunes or Image Capture
I still have my iPad 2 (Model: A1396) and have had such headaches with iTunes and Image Capture not recognizing that I do indeed have GBs worth of photos and videos on my iPad. Yes – All my software is up-to-date: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, iTunes 126.96.36.199, and Image Capture 6.7… yet, these applications don’t recognize the photos or videos on the iPad. So what’s the solution?
Save yourself hours of keeping your software current and going through reading forums for similar photo syncing headaches. The Solution: Dropbox to the rescue! I can create the exact same folders in Dropbox as how they were organized on the iPad then simply upload the files.
