OS X 10.11 El Capitan
has a great new Photos
app to replace iPhoto
, but it has one very annoying feature. Every time an iPhone/iPod/iPad
is connected to the Mac
opens and asks to import photos from the connected device. There is a way to switch this off however.
To stop Photos
opening every time you connect a device, follow these steps:
- Connect your device to your Mac
- Wait for Photos to open and click on your device
- Untick the 'Open Photos for this device' check box
After this is done Photos
will no longer open when that device is connected. If you want to do this for more than one device, repeat the steps above for each of the devices.
