Do you want to know if hidden photos transfer to a new iPhone? If so, then you’re in the right place. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the differnt ways you can transfer hidden photos from one device to another. We’ll also provide some tips that can help make the process easier and faster.

First things first, it’s important to understand what “hidden photos” are. Hidden photos are tose pictures that you have taken or saved but chosen not to show them in the Photos app on your device. They are usually stored in an album called “Hidden” or similar name. Hidden photos can be useful for keeping private or sensitive images away from prying eyes, but they have a downside: they don’t always transfer over when you switch devices.

The good news is that there are several ways you can transfer hidden photos from one device to another. The most common way is by using iTunes or iCloud. With iTunes, simply connect both devices to your computer and open iTunes. With iCloud, make sure that iCloud Photo Library is enabled on both devices and sign-in with the same Apple ID on both devices. Then all of your photos, including hidden ones, should sync between devices automatically.

Another way is by using third-party apps designed specifically for transferring files betwen iOS devices, such as AirDrop or SHAREit. These apps allow you to quickly and easily transfer files between iPhones directly over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection without using any cables or computer programs.

Finally, depending on how the hidden photos were taken or saved initially, there may be other ways of transferring them as well. For example, if you took them with a digital camera and stored them on an SD card, then you could simply pop out the SD card from your old device and insert it into your new one – no complicated steps required!

In summary, yes – hidden photos do transfer to a new iPhone! Depending on how they were taken or savd initially and which method you use, transferring them may require a few extra steps than regular photos – but it isn’t impossible! We hope these tips have been helpful and wish you all the best in transferring those special memories!
