Once connected, select which video files you want to transfer from the list on the GoPro app. You can either select individual files or multiple files at once by tapping on the checkboxes next to each video clip. When ready to transfer, click “Send” at the bottom of the screen and wait for it to finish transferring over.

After a few moments, you should see a notification appear on both indicating that all selected clips have been successfully transferred over. Open up the Quik Video Editor app on your iPhone and you should see all of those clips in there ready for editing!

Congrats! You've successfully transferred videos from your GoPro camera to your iPhone! With this method, you can easily and quickly transfer videos without having to worry about dealing with cords or having an connection nearby.
