    How can I configure Ubuntu 18.04 to ignore iPhone ?

    I want Ubuntu 18.04 to ignore my iPhone when I connect it to the USB Port. I want to connect it instead to a VM.
    When I plug iPhone in to USB I see these messages:

    Code:
    [59859.566267] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 37 using xhci_hcd
    [59859.715427] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=05ac, idProduct=12a8
    [59859.715430] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    [59859.715431] usb 1-1: Product: iPhone
    [59859.715433] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Apple Inc.
    [59859.715434] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 778f290f8013bc4435f59820d421ae270a484709
    [59859.750781] ipheth 1-1:4.2: Apple iPhone USB Ethernet device attached
    [59859.763002] ipheth 1-1:4.2 enp0s20f0u1c4i2: renamed from eth0
    [59859.801730] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): enp0s20f0u1c4i2: link is not ready
    [59859.802252] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): enp0s20f0u1c4i2: link is not ready
    Device is not ready nor do I want it to be.

    I then try to take control of the device using VMware Workstation and get this message:

    The specified device is in use by process:13799 /usr/sbin/usbmuxd on the host operating system. Continuing will detach the device from the host operating system.
    I click OK however the iPhone does not get connected to the guest.

    Shortly later the same appears:

    The specified device is in use by process:13941 /usr/sbin/usbmuxd on the host operating system. Continuing will detach the device from the host operating system.
    However if I click OK the guest doesn't quite freeze but slows down so much it's not responsive for 3-4 minutes. Once the guest is responsive again the iPhone is not available on VMware Workstation for passing through to guest.

    I have tried setting up udev rules to prevent mounting of the particular vendorid, productid pair however this did not work for me - I'd try again however not sure of whether this is actually an approach that can work.

    Help really appreciated.

    If I then disconnect and reconnect the iPhone it restarts.
