For Huawei Y7 Prime 2019, here is a complete tutorial on how to install proper USB drivers for it on either Windows or Mac computers. Huawei, just like other brands, has its own set of proprietary hardware which, in turn, requires proprietary software to run properly. Thus, in order to transfer files to Y7 Prime 2019, there is a requirement of first installing proper USB drivers. To fulfill that, we have compiled all the steps to configure Y7 Prime 2019 drivers on your system. These drivers will ensure your computer correctly recognizes the smartphone and avoids transfer errors.

While it may seem that file transfer is the only use-case of USB drivers, it is actually not.

Discussing a bit about the installation procedure itself, it is quite simple and as we have split it into separate steps, you shouldn’t face any issue. On top of showing you how to setup proper drivers, we have included extra tips explaining how you can wirelessly transfer files as well.
