It does pair:
Code: Select all
SUCCESS: Unpaired with device b8b17f6af48e208ef78e1e31fd5a6dbe923ab3cf
SUCCESS: Paired with device b8b17f6af48e208ef78e1e31fd5a6dbe923ab3cf


after a couple of attempts and trusting the iPhone
However when I click on the folder in caja the Unable to mount Documents error still comes up.
Going off to do some more research.

Yes charging ok now since I installed that systemd package

I did this and am getting a little farther.
Code: Select all
sudo chmod 777 /var/lib/lockdown

I now see iPhone in caja but nothing is in the folder.
Documents folder still throwing that error.
I am going to install some media player.
Not sure which one works best with an iPhone.
Any suggestions?

Apple goes to great lengths with each new version to make it difficult to access their hardware with anything but their own software. This has been going on for years...you might find people that have figured out how to do it for the iPhone 7 on other Linux forums and bring it over to Debian.

I think the library in Stretch that might get you started is libimobiledevice6. But maybe Apple has broken that with the 7 and you need to get a newer version. The search engines await you.

Library hint: install Synaptic and apt-xapian-index, and search for "iphone"

Guys you have been very helpful and I have gotten a lot farther than I would have on my own.
As far as libmtp I have this:
Code: Select all
cihonm@cihonm:~$ apt policy libmtp*
libmtp8:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:
libmtp9:
  Installed: 1.1.13-1
  Candidate: 1.1.13-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.1.13-1 500
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
libmtp-runtime:
  Installed: 1.1.13-1
  Candidate: 1.1.13-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.1.13-1 500
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

As far as libimoblile6 I have this:
Code: Select all
cihonm@cihonm:~$ apt policy libimobiledevice6
libimobiledevice6:
  Installed: 1.2.0+dfsg-3.1
  Candidate: 1.2.0+dfsg-3.1
  Version table:
 *** 1.2.0+dfsg-3.1 500
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I already had Synaptic and use that often to find package and install them.
I didn't know what apt-xapian-index was. I will research it.
As I get things working I will post them here.

At least in Jessie, installing apt-xapian-index will cause Synaptic to show a new "quick filter" search box that comes in handy.
