Thus, if you want to transfer videos from PC to iPhone 7 for an enjoyment, you will need to convert your videos to iPhone-compatible formats. In certain situations, iTunes will do the conversion stuffs for you, but you will probably need HandBrake or Leawo Video Converter Ultimate to give you a hand.
