    You can't do that.

    IOS uses a different file format and Apple only allows the iPhone to connect as a camera.

    via the HoFo App

    You can do it if jailbroken. I have used jailbroken phones to install windows on pc's just like I would a thumb drive. It's slow, but it works well.

    You're probably better off using a cloud service like Dropbox (or iCloud Drive when that comes out this fall).

    Left: iPhone 6+ on T-Mobile. Right: Comcast home internet connection.

    You need to jailbreak your iPhone first. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure you cannot do that.

    Just use some online service like DropBox or Google Drive because you can access those through your phone too.
