How To Transfer Photos And Videos From Your iPad to Your Computer Without Wifi? I have noticed that even when you have connected your iPad to your computer, using wire, you still need wifi to transfer photos and videos from the iPad to the computer. I have even tried to use Bluetooth between my iPad and MacBook, but still it seems that wifi is required to do this. I was wondering if there was a way to transfer photos and videos from the iPad to the computer without the need of wifi. As I mainly use my iPad in work, where wifi is not available, it would be great to be able to transfer photos and videos from my iPad to my computer with needing wifi.
