    iPhone 8 and iTunes

    For some reason my iPhone 8 no longer connects to my iTunes (version on OS Mojave) ....the usb works fine as I can see the phone connected via system information and hardware (this also happens on my MacBook air). Everything on both devices is updated too.

    Any help with this please?

    Then what do you mean "For some reason my iPhone 8 no longer connects to my iTunes (version on OS Mojave)"? More specifics please?

    I have noticed, I am having issues syncing my
    iPhone 8+. I have to remove the plist file and let iTunes create a new one each time. But, I am thinking it has something to just installing, and starting to use iMazing, since I am new to it.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Yes please, emtaylor90.

    Let's say you use a USB connection directly into your Mac (no hub).

    You open iTunes. Do you see the iPhone icon at the top of the window (close to "Music")? - I do not mean in the Sidebar.

    Yes - well then click on it and it will open the usual Window for syncing and updates etc.

    If No - which is more likely given your post, have you tried the following:

    Shut off your iPhone.
    Force shut down your iPhone.
    Rebooted your Mac

    If none of these work, then re-download iTunes from here:

    I had this problem some months ago with my iPhone X and having AppleCare Plus, I got in touch with them and the re-download was the solution.
