It provides users better way to share photos with friends. If iPhone 5 is an ideal device for photographing, iPad mini will definitely be an ideal tablet for photo scanning.

For one thing, users can back up those iPhone 5 photos to make sure the photos won’t be lost permanently.

Besides that, transferring photos from iPhone 5 to iPad mini can make room for new iPhone 5 photos when there is no much room left in iPhone 5.
