    connect iPhone to Ubuntu, now

    So I take pictues and videos on my iPhone 8 of my blog and video accounts. I would just plug my apapter cord into the USB, hit trust and password on the phone and it would pop up in files. NOW, it is not doing that any more. Even a restart and no go. I am assuming apple chnaged something to screw this up.

    I there any software solutions to download to make this work better?

    Using 20.04.2 LTS

    I used to use ppa, but now just install from repostitory.

    sudo apt-get install ideviceinstaller libimobiledevice-utils ifuse libimobiledevice6  libplist3
    sudo apt-get install heif-gdk-pixbuf heif-thumbnailer libheif1 gimagereader gpicview
    I prefer to mount to a location that does not by default show in file browser, but you could mount anywhere you like.
    #iphone First time
    sudo mkdir /mnt/iPhone
    sudo chown  $USER:$USER /mnt/iPhone 
    sudo chmod  a+rwX,o-w /mnt/iPhone
    idevicepair pair
    ifuse /mnt/iPhone/
    ls  /mnt/iPhone
    ideviceinfo -d
    #to unmount:
    fusermount -u /mnt/iPhone
    idevicepair unpair
    I prefer to use rsync to copy photos. Not my exact command as I have already created folders in my data partition for my Pictures.
    rsync -aruvlP /mnt/iPhone/DCIM/100APPLE/ /mnt/data/Pictures/All2021

    You may have other folders in DCIM.
