Default iphone pictures to /home

For those of you who like to transfer pictures from your iphone to your
OpenBSD disk, may I ask how you do it?

Are you simply "mount/umount" the device as a usb per the man pages
or
Are you using a package/packages in addition to the above from the
repository
or
A reference would be just fine as I can read, however have not found much
direct reference to iphone here or elsewhere.

thanks in advance

I do not own an iphone but do use openbsd to load music files to a portable mpg player. The methods should be similiar.

I would start by connecting the iphone via it's cable (usb vs firewire?) to the OpenBSD system and
running
dmesg(8)
If Apple has not crippled basic connectivity you should see a new sd* device at the end of the dmesg.
The OpenBSD FAQ has instructions on how to mount devices. If you are successful, you should be able to change to the mount point directory and browse until you find the iphone directory containing your images.

I also found this older link regard using ssh(1) to wireless access iphone pictures.

For picture, I beleive the iPhone will in fact show as a camera/usb disk. I have yet to try this on my OpenBSD machine, but I know in windows it acts in this fashion. You could then use a program like gphoto to manage your pics and possibly import.

Yeah, having to use a USB cable ==> depressing. But I guess having the device run sshd and being able to sftp in over the wireless LAN would be too elegant a solution.

If you jailbreak the iPhone, a wireless sync solution is probably available.
