    i've heard of this problem but i've never had until i got the 11 pro max.

    it just keeps rapidly connecting and disconnecting when i plug it into my MacBook air.

    things i've already tried:
    - using another apple cable, a couple anker ones too
    - power cycled my mac and iphone
    - erased and reinstalled both mac and iPhone
    - smc and nvram reset
    - plugging into both ports on my mac.
    - tried someone else iPhone 7 and it works perfect
    - i don't have another mac to try that with my 11 pro max
    - killing the 'usbd' process
    - reset location and privacy settings.
    - mac and iPhone are up to date

    those are all the tips i read online. still no luck.

    any ideas ?
    i really need to plug it in for a iTunes backup and some photos syncing.

    i've ordered usb hub from amazon to try that
    anker non powered usb hub solves problem. will just keep using that until one day i assume macOS software update solves issue.

    **update 2**
    just switched to a 11 pro NON Max and having same exact issue.

    Wow, sorry to hear. Everything you've tried would have been the same thing I would have tried. Have you called Apple? Hopefully someone with a better answer can chime in. Good Luck.
