Question: How come my iP X's Photos doesn't show up in iTune?


I shot some video on my iPhone X and want to transfer to my MBP.

I'm using AirDrop to transfer but it is pretty slow for 2 4+min files of 4K vid.

Since iTunes quickly transferred some vids on my MBP to iPhone I was hoping the reverse would be posssible but when I connected again Photos, where the vids are, didn't show up?

Why not?

Is there another way to get iTunes to recognize those vids in Photos?

Is there a better quicker way to transfer? iPhotos or even iMovie, maybe?



iPhone X, iOS 11.1, null
