Best way to transfer photos and videos from your iPhone to MacBook / macOS is

If you are an iPhone user and if you take a lot of photographs and videos then surely you transfer it to your macBook. There are two ways - first through AirDrop and second through Photos app using lightening cable. Using AirDrop seems to be the most optimal way which results in lesser corruption as whenever I have tried massive amount of photos and videos using Photos app via lightening cable, it has always led to data corruption and irregularity. 

Hence, if you want to transfer the photos and videos from your iPhone to macOS perhaps choosing AirDrop is the safest and best bet.

Why write?

Why do we write - I stumbled upon a fs article and it made me retrospect about why I write. But first, let's see what I learnt from the article (link below).

Writing is the process by which you get the clarity of what you know and what you don't. It aids the understanding aspect of what you talk about. 

Writing is a double edged sword - it enables you to share your ideas as well as improve your understanding of the topic. 

Writing makes you explorer - as you continue writing, you think in countless different ways to come up with new ideas.
