    Having considerable difficulty in moving pics from my iPhone to my iMac. The iMac wants me to "restore" my iPhone settings but I don't want to lose all the data I have on that phone. Is there an alternative method of transfer?

    Hello,

    -Which model iPhone?
    -Which version of iOS?
    -Which version of OS X/macOS?
    -Are you attempting to transfer them to a folder, or into the Photos app?
    -What are the steps you are taking now?

    Thanks for the reply, Cory. In order, 5S, iOS 12.1.2, mac OS 10.14.2, into the Photos app or the Photos file. I have followed the generic instructions found elsewhere online, and have consistently run into the issue of the iMac wanting me to "restore" my original phone settings. I am reluctant to do that as I do not want numbers and names erased nor any pictures that may get in the way. Am I being overly cautious here?
