Slow data transfer iPhone 7+ to 10.11.6 Mini

Transferring a pics and movies from iPhone 7+ to 2012 Mini running 10.11.6 using Image Capture or Photos goes about 4MB/sec. Which is dog slow for 6GB movies and even slow for 12MP photos. Restarted both devices about 8x, trying different things to no avail.

Same setup with iPhone 5+ goes at about 32MB/sec using same Mac and same cable. Biggest difference between the 7+ and the 5+, other than the hardware is the 7+ has iOS 11.2.5 and the 5+ has iOS 10.3.2. I just deleted the movie as I really didn't need it but 4MB/sec is simply unacceptable.

Now, this is iOS whose devices are Apple's cash cow, but it's also a Mac Mini which is Apple's cash tardigrade. I guess they want me to pay for iCloud to back my pics up but I don't think I'll be doing that. The Mac needs an update to 10.12.6 so I may just go that route but this is still annoying.

Why not just let it go overnight?

Something is probably wrong on one side or the other. When I transfer images off my iPhone or iPad using Photo Transfer App, it goes quickly. Are you shooting anything in the new image or video formats (or maybe the 7 can't do that…)?

I have an iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 plus. Both running iOS 11.

The iPhone 7 plus is always faster at data-transfers.

Something's messing up your phone. Try force-rebooting it instead of a regular reboot.
