I have Windows10 running on VMware Workstation PRO 16.2. When I connect my iphone to my PC it asks me if I want to connect it to the host or to the Virtual machine. I choose VM and the iphone is recognized by the VM. But when I open itunes , in device section there is nothing and my iphone is not recognized. Is this a common problem or is there anything else I need to do to get my iphone connect correctly to the VM?
