I am trying to transfer all my photos and videos from the iphone to my linux mint desktop but when I connect my phone I get a message which says 'Unable to mount documents on iphone, unhandled lockdown error (-21)
Anyone knows what’s that?
Possibly KDE connect would be a solution. I see that it is available in the Apple Store and should be in Mints repos as well.
And the connection may need to be OK’d on the iPhone.
Hello and I am sorry for such a delayed reply!!
I have downloaded KDE connect on both my iphone and laptop, the devices are connected but still not able to see and transfer photos and videos. Is there somewhere a video which shows all the steps, maybe I am missing something and I am very new to all this… The new system etc…
Thank you very much,

When that error occurs, I open the iPhone and Mint mounts it just fine.
BTW, Mint will show two, separate iPhone folders:
