Trust button blinking when trying to connect iPhone

I am trying to connect my daughters new phone but when I plug the phone into my laptop the trust button starts blinking on and off on her iPhone and I try to hit trust and it won’t take it…anyone had this problem?

Hi Tiffany! Welcome to Bark’s digital community! :smiley: Sorry you’re having a bit of trouble. This seems like an iOS issue. Here’s what I found on Apple’s support page:

If you tap Trust or Don’t Trust but doesn’t accept your answer, or if the Trust alert won’t appear, follow these steps. Try again after each:

  1. Make sure that your computer has the latest version of macOS or the latest version of iTunes.

  2. Disconnect and reconnect your device from your computer.

  3. Restart your computer.

  4. Restart your device:

  1. Reset your Trust settings.

If the above steps don’t help, go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset Network Settings. This also resets Wi-Fi networks and passwords, cellular settings, and VPN and APN settings that you’ve used before.

If you downloaded iTunes for Windows from the Microsoft Store, make sure that iTunes Mobile Device Helper is enabled as a startup item.

If you still need help, contact Apple Support.

I hope this helps solve your problem! Here is also an iOS troubleshooting guide in case you need further assistance: Troubleshooting iOS Device Monitoring – Bark :green_heart:
