I'm enjoying new install of elementary OS Loki. BUT, I need to access photos from an iPhone. I am connecting the iPhone using a USB 3.0 port in the back of a NUC. When I click "Trust this computer" on the phone, there is an icon for the iPhone under devices, but when I click on it, it says This Folder is Empty.

I saw someone else asked the same question in May but no answer yet, so I'm asking it again in hopes someone sees this who has a fix. Or is it not possible to access photos from an iPhone using elementary? I hate Windows and do not want to go back just for this issue.

Thanks for any guidance!

unfortunately there's no way to mount iOS devices on Linux anymore for some time. At least not any that I'm aware of. I just use icloud/apple photos to access my images.
