    Your Phone app in build 1809

    I am trying to use the 'Your Phone' app that is part of 1809. I get the 'Your iPhone is linked' but don't know what to next. I want to see the pictures in the iPhone's camera roll. I get something about opening Edge on the iPhone but I really don't want to go there. I really know very little about about how to use the iPhone other than to make 'phone calls and now and then use Face Time. (My daughter insists on calling us using Facetime and I admit I enjoy that.)

    What do I have to do to be able to see the camera roll?

    Thank you.

    Personally I wouldn’t touch this with a barge pole. Anyway I might be wrong but was under the impression it only works in that way with Android. iPhone is confined to merely being able to share pages you are browsing on edge across both devices. My iPhone integrates much better with my iMac and I keep MS well away from my iPhone or linking it to windows 10 in case they screw things up.

    i barely use it but a better way to share photos on your pc is to install apple’s iCloud control panel on windows. Then you can either use iCloud Photo Library or family sharing to sync photos on both devices

    Don't even try it with Android. The Android app takes over your phone requiring me to perform an emergency power down to stop the app since nothing else would work on my phone once I installed it. I deleted the phone on W10 and Uninstalled the app on my Android. I'll never try that again.

    Good heads up for others. MS cannot do apps reliably. They should leave it alone. Apple does it much better (although they are certainly not immune from bugs)

    Thank you Scottyboy99 and Storageman. I sort of figured that would be the case and I will take your advice.
