For a while now I have been trying to import the images that are on my wife’s iPhone 8+, however each and every time during the process the app freezes at some point.
I first tried in Sierra, using Photos, and on multiple occasions it reached around 1000 / 1600 and froze.
I went back to Mavericks and tried in iPhoto, but iPhoto wasn’t even seeing the phone.
Back in Sierra, again Photos, I attempted breaking the 1600 images down… doing around 200 at a time. This looked to be working til - it hung again.
I’ve now just tried using Preview, and you guessed it - hung, this time after only about 200 photos.
What’s going on?
What’s the solution?
