    Hey y'all!

    While I'm a windows person, I still enjoy picking up my iPhone for a few days at a time. I decided to do a clean install of iOS 10.2 and much to my dismay, when I connect it to my PC, the computer recognizes it but iTunes refuses to acknowledge its presence. Each time I connect though, the iPhone asks me if I want to let the computer access the photos and camera roll.

    So, I did the usual:
    -Restarted phone first. No luck.
    -Restarted computer. No luck.
    -Restarted both. No luck.
    -Deleted and reinstalled iTunes. No luck.

    Doing some research, it looks like the drivers for the Apple Mobile Device under the USB Controller have not installed with iTunes, or mysteriously disappeared. All the guides to get it back or work around apparently are not updated for windows 10.

    Any suggestions, y'all? While I enjoy hopping from phone to phone, nothing infuriates me more when I CAN'T do something with it... and this just highlights a weakness in the dependence of iTunes for Apple stuff.

    But again, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
