files to iphone x from windows 10 and reverse

Unlike the android phone where I could drop files in file explorer I need a way to move files that is free and easy. Emails limit size .
I have watched endless hours of youtube to see how to do this but am now confused.
I do not have a VM so cannot keep downloading and trying.

I thought maybe someone here has one free easy way to use to send file from windows x to the iphone x and from iphone x to windows x?
I saw where itunes uses a cable; is it the easiest and best?

There is a newer feature in iOS 'Files', but to be honest, I haven't had the chance to really try it out. I think it's Apple's version of how I do it.

I use Dropbox (though Box, Google Drive, etc are all similar). It's basically a shared folder that automatically syncs to my computer, phone, web, etc. So if I need a PDF instruction manual on my phone, I drop it into my dropbox folder on my computer. A few seconds later it's on my phone, ready to be opened.

Pictures can be handled the same way.

Oh, and the best part, it's free!

files IOS PC

I am still using Overdrive b/c I have found nothing except 3rd party like MobiMover by Easeus.
It is pretty good but I like to avoid 3rd party.

Yeah, I'm still using Dropbox and Google Drive for my file management and transfer. Still haven't used 'Files' yet.

I've never been a huge fan of OneDrive, but it's likely because I haven't spent enough time with it.

I had Dropbox on my IPhone but not on my computer so I just tried it. Easy, peasy! Just put the files in as a test and it automatically put them on my IPhone. I already had an account but if you don't, just takes a minute.
Suggest you try it (just go to the app store to install and d/l dropbox on your computer.
This is easier than trying to figure out some other way. I've been emailing to transfer and this really is easier! Thanks Zorfdt!
