More and more users are reporting that they are unable to connect an iPhone or iPad to a Mac.
On the page we will go over the sources of the malfunction, and what should be checked for repair …
- Dedicated guide for iPhones but similar on iPad. Use of this guide is the sole responsibility of the user.
Reset privacy and security settings
This is the first thing to try!
The iPhone usually remembers old settings and especially if you have previously connected it to another computer.
The reset does not delete your personal information but resets promise, location settings.
Enter setting and select General> At the end of the window select Reset then down select Reset location & Privacy
Use this video:
After the reset, the device is reconnected and turned on. You will usually pop up a new message on the iPhone requesting to trust the Trust.
Even if your cable is charging your device, that doesn’t mean it’s good for transmitting information!
Check the connectivity with another cable and better with a cable that you know you will install with a new friend or cable.
Another USB port
You’ve probably tested the connection through another USB, but if not, then check.
If you are using a USB splitter, try connecting the cable directly to the Mac without a splitter.
If you have a new Mac if you have a USB-C connection (maybe the splitter fault itself).
iPhone type, system, Mac type
Notice that there are many glitches that result from incompatibility, old versions or old hardware!
- If you have an iPhone 5 (you should upgrade to at least Model 6)
- If you have an old Apple OS X system, it is very useful to update it to a newer 10.12 (Sierra) system. You can check the version in apple and then about it.
- The version of the iPhone should also be quite up to date. Za ios 7-8 at least!
In that context, try to understand compatibility. If you connect iPhone 7 (considered new) to Mac with a 10.8 or 10.9 system, it probably won’t work.
Or if you take an iPhone 5 and plug in the newest Mac, there might be problems here too.
Throw the device in the trash or someone who hates?
It is up to you to decide. On average, it is worth replacing a mobile device every 4 years to stay in technology and of course to avoid compatibility glitches.
Apple computers from 2013 are equipped with quite new hardware with an SSD drive so you can usually upgrade only the operating system and no need to replace a computer.
