There can be several reasons due to which an iPhone won’t sync with a computer. These range from an old version of iTunes to low battery of the iPhone. With simple troubleshooting, you can diagnose the issues and sync your iPhone with a computer.
The following are the reasons due to which an iPhone won’t sync with a computer and steps to resolve the problems:
An outdated version of iTunes is installed
You may need to update iTunes if the latest version is not installed. To check for the iTunes updates on a Mac, go to iTunes, and click ‘Check for Updates’. To update iTunes on a Windows-based PC, go to ‘Help’ and click ‘Check for Updates’.
iTunes files are corrupted
If iTunes files are corrupted and the program is not functioning properly, you will have to reinstall the software. On a Windows-based PC, completely uninstall iTunes and reinstall the latest version.
The iPhone is low on battery
Check the status of your iPhone’s battery. If it’s low, your iPhone won’t sync with a computer. Charge the battery using an AC adapter or connect the phone to the USB of a computer. After the iPhone is sufficiently charged, again try to sync it.
Wrong USB connection
Check the USB connection linking your iPhone with the computer. Disconnect the iPhone and reconnect it or use a different port. Try using a USB port that is built into the computer instead of making the connection through a port on the keyboard or monitor.
Third party software conflicts
Your iPhone won’t sync if an antivirus or a security program blocks iTunes from recognizing the phone. You will have to temporarily disable the conflicting software or change the settings to fix the software conflicts. Also, check your computer’s firewall if it’s blocking the detection of the iPhone.
So, if your iPhone won’t sync, just perform these simple troubleshooting steps.
