    I am hosting a Catalina image. However, when I plug in a iphone device via USB and follow the instruction , the image does not detect the iphone. The device does not ask for authorisation - means that the image fails to detect the usb itself.

    The host recognised the iphone.

    Host : Catalina
    Image : Catalina
    Device - iPhone
    Parallels : Desktop version 15

    Please let me know how do I connect to it. I manage to connect it in Majove image but it fail in Catalina image.

    I have tested it with usb external hard disk and it work. It just fail for the iphone.

    Hi, I have the same issue, trying to connect an iPhone the a Catalina VM and the phone is not detected.
    I reinstalled Parallels Tools and follow the KB as suggested but nothing changed.

    I have the same problem; I'm not able to see the iPad inside the virtual machine.
