    The DCIM folder is read only on the iPhone, so you can't copy files to it from a computer.
    Several options exist to get the photos on your phone:
    - Use iCloud Photo Library
    - Mail them to yourself
    - Use an app like Transmit to copy the photos to your phone via wireless connection
    - Use any of the cloud storage apps on the app store to upload your photos and view them on the phone (Dropbox, Onedrive, etc)
