Windows 11 guest - Iphone USB connection not working


Aug 14, 2020

I was searching in the forum but haven't found anything related to this.
I want to use itunes to backup an iphone but I am unable to do. Sometimes through an error while doing the backup, others the pop-up trust message keeps booting on the phone,...
When I use another laptop with windows 11 as host I don't have any problem.
I know that iphone is very sensitive and requires to use original lightning cable or use a specific bitratio of the usb and I have my "guess" that can be the problem, passthrough of usb does not follow apple's requirements. I tried with another hardware too using proxmox and windows 11 with no luck too.
Anyone got it this working? Is there another way to pass through usb? I have latest virtio installed too.


Thank you,
I got it working by just removing several usb ports I have configured on the given VM. Somehow those may cause some kind of interruption unable to properly passthrough phone content.
