I suggest using ifuse, once installed your iphone will mount when connected:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ifuse

then update using update manager under System menu

Now Your iPhone will mount when connected, you can find it under the places menu
