Check Your USB Connection

Disconnect the device and try to reconnect it by using a light cable connector. In the situation of an unstable connection, you can change to another USB port and try it one more time. Ensure that your device is unlocked while clicking on the “Trust” tab in your device. For locked or disabled devices, go to the DFU mode. You could also make use of the professional unlocker software system to help get rid of the iPhone system locks in the device.

Check whether the Apple drivers have been installed normally. Choose the Start button, click on it and hold it; you can then select the Device Manager. Look for and extend the tab for Portable Devices and find the connected device (like the Apple iPhone), the AMD USB driver device, and the LibUSB-winXX components. But, if the following unusual conditions have been found, they can be fixed through the solutions. When you cannot see the AMD USB Driver inside the section for the Universal device Serial Bus system controllers, you can uninstall the AMD USB driver by right-clicking on it. Use your USB cable and plug the device into your computer's USB port. If you are unable to detect the AMD USB driver of the controller's section of the Universal device Serial Bus, while the Apple iPad/iPhone does not show in your Portable Devices tab, check your Light cable of the device to know whether it has been correctly connected with your computer's USB port.
