This question came from our site for power users of Apple hardware and software.

This is no longer an issue, I have posted the solution on [this thread… – bleeves Mar 13 '14 at 19:42

I recently checked out the bug tracking page and I noticed a solution. The solution is to download libimobiledevice4_1.1.6-git20140105_amd64.deb. This can be found here:

Once downloaded, point your terminal to the location of the .deb file and execute the following:

> sudo dpkg -i libimobiledevice4_1.1.6-git20140105_amd64.deb

According to the bug page, other users have reported having success with this update library as well.

I downloaded this and was successful with connecting my iPhone 5.


Just want to clarify that this lib is currently for 64-bit versions of Ubuntu 13.04/13.10.
