It can be incredibly stressful when you drop your iPhone and the screen breaks. Not only does it damage the phone, but it can also make it difficult to use the device. Fortunately, tere is a solution – you can connect an iPhone with a broken screen to your computer.

With this method, you can access your phone’s data and content without having to physically interact with the broken display. This process is made possible through iTunes, which acts as a bridge between your computer and iPhone.

In order to begin this process, you must firt open iTunes on your computer. With iTunes open, connect your iPhone to the computer using a USB cable or Lightning cable. Once connected, iTunes will recognize your device and ask if you want to trust the computer. Select “Trust” on both devices in order for them to communicate with each other successfully.

Once recognized by iTunes, select “Restore” from the Summary tab options in order to reset the phone back to its factory settings. This will erase all of the data and content stored on your device; however, if you have backed up your phone previously through iCloud or another cloud service provider then you will be able to restore all of that content back onto the device once restored.

Once restored, disconnect your device from the computer and power it off for about 30 seconds in order for it to properly reset itself before powering it back on again. If done correctly, this should unlock and restore any iOS-based devices including iPhones with broken screens so that they can be used normally again without having to physically interact with them due to their broken display.

Although connecting an iPhone with a broken screen may seem like a complicated process at first glance, using iTunes makes it surprisingly easy and straightforward so that anyone who has access to a computer can do it quickly and easily!
