    Well, one easy way is to use Apple's AirDrop which establishes an Ad Hoc wireless connection between iDevices - there are a number of requirements including having both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on for transmitting devices - check the link to determine if your hardware/software are compatible.

    For myself, I've used AirDrop often to transfer files between our iPads, iPhone, and Mac computers - usually works fine, but sometimes can be annoying when one device fails to recognize the other. SO, let us know if this method works for you. Dave :)

    The 4s still gets the latest software, you can update it to 9.3.2, the recent iOS. It's possible that a few features don't work, but it's still supported.

    It won't get iOS 10 in autumn, but that doesn't mean that it's out of the Apple family, as it's an Apple device.

    Well, as I stated, you needed to check the compatibility of your hardware & software, and apparently Apple's iPhone 4s is not on the hardware list. Of course, depending on the number of images you want to transfer, emailing the pics to yourself would be an option.

    Also, check this Forum Link, and specifically post #6 which I wrote last year - most of the suggestions apply - there are several apps (PhotoSync & PhotoTransfer) that provide wireless transfer between iDevices & computers - one would likely work for you. Dave :)

    OK - the link works fine for me on my iPad and also on my MBPro, and likely for others - if you are still interested in reviewing options, the actual URL is shown below - take a look - may help? Dave :)

    Looking for a simple photo uploader
