I would like my MacOS App to be able to access images (ie within the iOS Photos Library) from an iPhone that is plugged into the Mac, much like would be possible from a USB drive.
Does anyone know a way of achieving this?
not sure that is what the OP is looking for.... it seems he wants to use his MAC to read the photos on his iPhone
@James P Plug in your iPhone, open Photos on the Mac, and you can import directly from iosPhoto. That's what I'd like to be able to do with my App...
doubt seriously that functionality is in any way exposed by Apple (ie. most likely Private API)
Did you check my plugin?
A little more help please, I feel what I need is there but I can't quite access it. I'm trying to get at the ICCameraDeviceMBS.mediaFiles but using both methods of access in your examples (ImageCaptureViews and CameraBrowser) result in an empty array for this method.
Yet ImageCaptureViews, when showing in the example IKCameraDeviceViewControlMBS correctly shows the content of the iPhone, so I'm probably missing something obvious (to others!).
I've tried compiling, 64bit, entitlements for USB, Camera and code signing but without success.
