iMazing does not recognise my device (Mac)

iMazing relies on Apple drivers to recognise your device. If iMazing does not recognise your device then it's very likely that your Apple drivers are not up to date.

 

iPhone, iPad, iPod touch

1. Try a different USB port and/or cable.

2. Check for software updates (macOS Dock > App Store > Updates)

There may be Apple patches for your version of macOS that fix the issue.

3. Update iTunes (iTunes > Check for updates...)

4. Check whether your iTunes version is compatible with your device's iOS version.

Minimum compatibility requirements

iOS iTunes Operating System
10 12.5

Mac OS X 10.8 Moutain Lion

9 12.3

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

5. Check 3rd party security software

Security software can prevent iMazing from connecting to Apple devices. You might need to temporarily disable or remove your computer's security software.

And if that does not work...

The vast majority of connection issues are resolved by following these steps. If iMazing still does not recognise your device contact us and let us know that you've already followed the steps above. We're here to help!

 

iPod nano, iPod classic

These iPods works a bit differently than iOS Apple devices - if you are having trouble getting the device to show up in iMazing, please apply the following steps:

1. Try a different USB port and/or cable.

2. Enable Disk Use in iTunes

  1. Open iTunes and make sure your iPod shows up there.
  2. Once iTunes picks up your iPod, select it and make sure the "Enable Disk Use" check box is checked.
  3. Restart iMazing, your iPod should now show up after a few seconds.

And if that does not work...

The vast majority of connection issues are resolved by following these steps. If iMazing still does not recognise your device contact us and let us know that you've alreadyfollowed the steps above. We're here to help!

 

iPod Shuffle

The iPod Shuffle is only supported on the Windows version of iMazing.
