How to Fix Computer Not Recognizing iPhone

When you connect your iPhone with your computer trying to transfer photos and video, it’s likely your computer is not recognizing your iPhone. This is frustrating.
But don’t worry, this sort of problem can be easily fixed. Whether you’re getting problems like computer not recognizing iPhone, or iTunes not recognizing iPhone, this post should help you resolve the problem.

Solution 1. Restart your iPhone and computer
You can first disconnect your iPhone from your computer, and restart both your iPhone and computer. Then connect again to see if your iPhone shows up in your computer.

Solution 2. Check your USB cable and USB port
Sometimes the USB cable issue can prevent your iPhone from being detected. So you can try another USB cable to connect again to see if it works.
You should also try another USB port on your computer to connect.

Solution 3. Always trust your computer
You’ll be prompted to select Trust or Don’t Trust your computer when you connect your iPhone to your computer, so you can take a look at your iPhone screen, and select Trust whenever you’re prompted this alert.
Solution 4. Try a different USB port to see if this solves iPhone not recognized issue.
The USB ports on the back of the desktop may work properly. Also pay attention to the type of ports, especially the USB Type-C port or the Thunderbolt port, which is featured rarely on most of the PCs
