Unlike Android, third-party apps are sandboxed on iOS devices. You can't access files of apps directly. Except for the photos, you can't share data between apps. Therefore, Apple released the Files app, which can check some files saved on your iPhone. But you still can't share, move and manage those files and data on iPhone. You can use macOS Finder and Windows File Explorer to access your iPhone with a USB cable. Because of the system limitation, you can only access photos in the DCIM folder on Windows. You need to install iTunes to access the files and other photos on your phone. That's not an easy thing.
AirDroid can easily solve this troublesome! With AirDroid, you can access files on iPhone on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even Chromebook. What's more, you don't need a USB cable and iTunes.
