Send Your Photos as Mail Attachments
This isn’t the most glamorous way to send photos or videos from your iPhone to your Mac, but it does work. You can attach any picture you want from the Photos app and send it to yourself.
You can then open the email on your Mac and download the photos into your Downloads folder. Sure, it’s not the most efficient way, but if you don’t have your Mac at the moment to enable any of the features listed above, this might be a great option for you.
