[Bug 1207812] Re: [Sony VGN-SR29XN_S] Iphone with iOS 7 does not work on Ubuntu


By the way, I'm not sure why, but it works for me now, where it didn't
use to work before. As far as I can tell, no relevant Ubuntu updates or
iOS updates were installed; I just tried it out recently again and it
works. I can plug my iPhone 5 (iOS 7.0.4) into my Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit
machine and I can exchange documents without issue. No trust prompt ever
appears on the phone, which just goes to show that this whole thing is
security theater.

If I can probvice any diagnostic informaiton to help debug the problem
for others, please let me know.
