    Hi, does anybody know how to get footage off an IMO mobile phone onto a new 2022 Mac with OS Monterey? I will post this question on the Apple forum too but thought I’d ask here first. This did work somehow on my previous Mac bought in 2016 but no joy on the new one. Thanks for any help. Gareth

    Preview -> File -> Import from <name of phone>

    Not ‘Import from iPhone’ (which is also an option), but for me, was the option right under that. Anyway, brings up an importer dialogue box where you can see all of your media (photos and videos).

    And for reference, this was tested on Ventura, 13.2.1. And in my past experience worked the same way on previous OS’s, so it should work the same way on Monterey.

    Bottom line: use Preview (or one of the other Mac apps such as Photos or FCP.

    Thanks Joby, actually, I found that you need to download an app called “Android File Transfer” when you have installed that it works. Thanks!

    Ah! Apologies. I assumed it was an iPhone. But glad to hear you got it to work!
