first, thanks for reading.

recently, i found some weird problem.

when i rebooting my PC while iphone 5 connected,

iTunes doesn't detect iphone.

although this can be resolved in the following way,

- unplug & plug USB or unplug & plug lightning cable from iphone.

but to do that every time there is quite uncomfortable.

so i tried figure out what is the problem.

finally the cause is Apple Mobile Device Services - TCP/IP protocol driver


you can find the video at follow link:

as you can see,

i excute services.msc

then find the 'apple mobile device'

just click I simply click on the tab was in turn.

But as soon as you click on the Dependencies tab,

suddenly iTunes detect my iphone.:confused:

it is a just bug or

can i trouble shooting this problem?

I have a feeling this is closely related to flaky WIFI SYNC.

Last time I checked, many work-arounds, work for some, no worky for others.

If u fix this, SELL IT!
