    Neither by wifi or USB connection to my Mac Mini. Don't understand because it used to ! Are there some settings I'm forgetting about ?

    Quit iTunes and try again? Restart your Mac?

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

    Could there be a disparity between the Mac's Operating System, and therefore the version of iTunes, and the iPhone's iOS?

    So what OS, what version iTunes and which iOS on the 5S?

    Thanks again Ian

    Mac OS = Mojave 10.4.6
    iTunes = 12.9.5.5 (can see only on cmptr but not on phone)
    iPhone 5S = 12.4.2

    But here's the thing, iTunes on cmptr only saw the phone (the little icon appears top line) after a downloaded update to the phone to this version.

    So lesson learned ? Keep the phone OS up to date with the latest ITunes update ?

    Exactly. For as long as you can anyway. That's the highest iOS for the 5S.
