iTunes - Error 0xE800012

March 2018


Each time I connect my iPhone to my PC, I get the following error message
"iTunes could not connect to the iPhone because an error occurred (0xE800012)".


  • Connect your iPhone and launch the Device manager
  • Look for the iPhone entry and select it.
  • Click on Reinstall the drivers.
  • Once done try to open iTunes.
