Is it possible to access iPhone somehow from tcmd.exe? Just for basic tasks such as dir and copy, not writing as that's not allowed. Apple iPhone is visible as a Portable Device under Computer, but not found with "wmic logicaldisk get deviceid, volumename, description".

If it is impossible to access iPhone from tcmd.exe, is there a workaround for my main problem: I want to quickly get the directory listing for the newest files under Apple Iphone / Internal Storage / DCIM. That folder contains my phone photos taken by me. However, the photos are under cryptic folders such as "805HJCQZ" etc. and all the folders have the same date so I have no idea where my newest photos are. There seems to be no way to transfer only selected newest photos, so I need a way to find the files with newest creation date under all subdirectories in the location mentioned.

You can use COPY/SX to copy files (your photos) from multiple directories (on your iPhone) to a single directory on your computer. You will then not depend any more on the cryptic and changing folder names from the iPhone. (Obviously the files/photos need to keep distinct names.)
You can then combine with the COPY/O option (if the names of the files/photos proper do not change), or the COPY/U option (if the timestamps of the files/photos proper do not change), or also the COPY/[D…] date-range option (again if the timestamps of the files/photos proper do not change).
