    I assume we are talking about devices that are NOT hardwired by USB cord to the computer?

    Specs:
    Mac Mini i5 (2014 High Sierra), iPhone X, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 12.9, AppleTV (4)
    First things to try:
    1. new cable
    2. different USB port - don't use a hub powered or otherwise
    3. Go into About this Mac - System Profiler and look at the USB devices. Can you see the iPad or iPad connected here even when iTunes doesn't detect them?

    1. If you log into the guest user, or create a new user and install iTunes in there does that detect your devices?

    2. Have you tried new cables?
