Just like you – we are pretty bummed by having to install additional iTunes drivers. But there’s no avoiding it:
Windows computers do not belong to Apple’s ecosystem. This means – that any Windows app that wants to access your iPhone (notwithstanding the model) needs to use Apple Mobile Support drivers. They are usually installed on your computer in the same pack with iTunes. Naturally, WALTR 2 for Windows has to use these iTunes drivers as well. This is simply the nature of the beast.
Because WALTR relies on iTunes drivers, you will need to update your iTunes to the latest version & delete outdated drivers. This will ensure that WALTR works properly with all the 2018’s + Apple devices. Basically, you will need to follow these instructions.
