And assuming you want to transfer the recorded videos, it will be a lot easier to just Airdrop them to your Mac. That’s the advantage if you’re using Apple devices.

However, if you’re using Windows or any other operating systems, you can physically connect your iPhone 13 to your computer using the original lightning cable.

And then, navigate to iPhone > DCIM. The videos are segregated by year and month (i.e. 202202_) so you can actually find them easily.
