I took my phone to the Kudo store in Niagara Falls as I was told they could copy my pictures from my Iphone 4S to my Iphone 6S.  I stood for 1/2 hr all the while he was telling me the pictures and videos were copying.  After 40 minutes he told me "I can't copy these they are too old". The pictures are from last September and on and that is too old??? Not a sufficient answer.  I need these pictures and videos from my 4s to my 6s. Please help!!!

Can you install an app call "Send anywhere" on the both devices?

I have it on my Android phone, iPhone and my pc.
I can send pics, videos between them really easy and quick.

Install iTunes on your computer and save your pictures to iTunes and restore them to the new iPhone. This will keep a permanent backup of those photos on your computer.


Connect your iPhone to your Windows computer. It should be recognized as a media device, and you can download your photos to a file of your choosing. You should be able to do the reverse to move the photos to the new phone.


Set up an iCloud Account, and upload your photos there from your old iPhone, then connect your new iPhone to iCloud and the photos will download to your new iPhone 


Open AirDrop on both iPhones and transfer the photos that way.

Check out Google Photos and back up all your photos automatically when connecting to a wifi connection so you'll never lose your pictures even if you lose your phone, you'll have every picture still in the cloud the next time you log in from any device from the last time your device connected to a wifi connection. It has some amazing search algorithms as well so you can simply search something such as dog and it will automatically go through your photos and bring up every one with a dog in them, it's pretty amazing and extremely helpful.

All this and more all for free with unlimited storage you can't go wrong.
