The Apple iPhone 4S has an 8-megapixel digital camera for taking pictures. If you have a Mac computer, can use Apple's iPhoto software to import your pictures from the iPhone to your computer. Importing requires you to connect the phone to the computer using the supplied USB cable. Once connected, you can preview the pictures that are ready for import, select specific pictures you want to import or import all of the photographs at once.
Plug the long, thin end of the USB cable into the connector on the bottom of the iPhone. Plug the standard, USB end of the cable into a USB port on your computer.
Click "iPhoto" in your computer dock if the application doesn't automatically open when you plug in the phone. The right side of the iPhoto window displays a preview of new images not yet imported to the computer as well as a list of pictures you've already imported.
Enter a name in the "Add Event Name" text box if you want to organize these photographs in a group. If you don't name the event, iPhoto automatically assigns an event name.
Click the box next to "Split Events" to remove the check mark and stop iPhoto from splitting the photographs into events.
Click "Import X Photos," where "X" represents the number of images you are importing from the phone, if you chose to import all of the photographs.
Press the "Command" button and click the individual photographs you want to import if you don't want to import the entire group of images. Click "Import Selected Images."
Click "iPhone" in the menu under Devices and drag it to the trashcan icon in the dock when you are finished importing your photographs.
Unplug the USB cable from the iPhone and the computer.
