Step 1: Connect Your iPhone to Your Computer
Using a Lightning cable, connect your iPhone to your Windows 10 computer. Make sure your iPhone is unlocked and that you click “Trust” on your iPhone if you see a prompt asking if you trust this computer.
Step 2: Check for Updates
Before installing any drivers, make sure your computer is up to date. Go to Settings > Update & Security and click “Check for Updates.” If there are any updates available, install them and restart your computer.
Step 3: Install iPhone Drivers
If your computer doesn’t automatically install the drivers, you can do it manually. Open Device Manager by searching for it in the Start menu. Look for “Portable Devices” and expand the menu. Right-click on “Apple iPhone” and select “Update Driver.”
Step 4: Choose the Driver Location
In the pop-up window, select “Browse my computer for driver software.” Navigate to the folder where you downloaded the iPhone drivers (you can download them from the Apple website) and click “Next.”
Step 5: Install the Drivers
Windows will now install the drivers for your iPhone. Once it’s finished, you should be able to see your iPhone in File Explorer and sync it with iTunes.
Step 6: Troubleshooting
If you’re still having trouble connecting your iPhone to your computer after installing the drivers, try restarting both your iPhone and computer. You can also try using a different Lightning cable or USB port.
