Q: How do I install the Apple mobile device USB driver?​

A: If your iPhone won't connect with your Windows PC, updating the driver software might help. First, unlock your phone, and then connect the device to your PC with a USB cable. Launch Device Manager > Portable Devices > right-click your iPhone > Update driver. After the driver updates, disconnect and reconnect your phone again.

Q: When to Update Drivers​

A: It's common to wonder if you should update every driver that's available. For example, if your computer, the hardware manufacturer's website, or a driver updater tool tells you that there are 10 driver updates compatible with your system, should you get all of them or just a few? Does it matter which ones you install?

The short answer is no, you don't necessarily need to install every driver update suggested to you. There are two basic scenarios where you might consider installing a new driver:
  • If the hardware doesn't work.
  • If you want new features.
