Right click your VM from Manager.
Choose Settings, then USB.
Add your iPhone to the USB Filters.
Launch VM.
Under Devices menu, select your iPhone (it will have a check mark when enabled).

Thanks for this amazing guide, worked flawlessly. Just wanted to know if taking system updates (10.12.4) from the App Store would cause any harm?

Thanks a lot for this guide. It is working perfeclty on an Alianware M18X (i7-2960XM) while on an ASUS N552VW ( i7-6700HQ) it is looping in the boot sequece. After it says “system up time in nanoseconds”, it reboots the VM. Any Idea which could be the cause ?

Congratulationsthis is awesome. It worked perfectly. The only issue I have is that on El Capitan everything worked fine and I could develop in XCode perfectly, since changing to Sierra I can’t seem to make my iphone recongnized by the MacOS. The device is captured but it doesn’t show up. I tried the same with flash drives and the same thing happens.
