In fairness, I imagine part of this is Apple working so hard to lock down the phone so you can't interface except through iTunes. I know I had similar troubles with my ipod back in the day.
why is windows 10 a flaming piece of crap I can't import my photos from my iphone
10000000000000000000% this is apple being apple
but yeah windows 10 is a steaming pile of shit besides
I'm pretty sure it's the Windows 10 photo app, not Apple, because the Adobe one worked just fine.
