1. Work with Drivers

Connect your iPhone to your computer, right-click the Start button and open Device Manager.
Go to Portable Devices, right-click the Apple iPhone icon and click the button that says Update Driver.
Now you should click on "Search automatically for updated driver software."
After completing the process, go to iTunes and see if your iPhone shows up.
Your steps will be slightly different if you downloaded iTunes from Apple:
Connect the iPhone to your computer and press Windows + R. Next enter% ProgramFiles% \ Common Files \ Apple \ Mobile Support \ Drivers and press Enter. Now right-click the usbaapl64.inf or usbaapl.inf file and click Install. After the process completes, check if the "iPhone not showing up in iTunes Windows 10" problem persists on your device.
2. Use Device Manager
Check Device Manager and see if the driver is installed correctly.
Right-click the Start button and select the Device Manager line.
Next, expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers and find the Apple Mobile USB Driver section.
If this section does not contain your driver, or you see an Unknown device message, try plugging in a different USB cable or plugging your iPhone into a different computer.
If an error symbol appears next to the driver in this section, you must restart the Apple Mobile Device Service.
