This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have change some modification in application and device policy.

My last policy was configured as application base to block the usb and i was found some case where usb able to access.

So i have followed online documents and set as device base policy to block it.

Problem is after modify this policy iphone is not able to charge other phone is charging.

When an USB IPhone Connector is connected to USB port of Computer, IPhone installs the Drivers of the same (or ITune Software identifies the Iphone). Until and unless the Drivers can installed or detection takes place the Phone would not be charged. IPhone also carries the HDD within it. So, when you insert the Connector, it detects the HDD as well. (you can see the Iphone HDD in the My Computer option)

However, you need to understand, it would not get charged until the IPhone is detected. And for detection your HDD has to be activated and drivers be installed and a Transfer has to take place (which you do not want.)

There is no way to allow charging while still blocking the USB functionality.

Hi bansal_r,

The information above is correct.  Charge the iPhone using an electric socket rather than the computer.

Hope this helps!


With thanks and best regards,

Agree with all above comments.

Only way to access is you can add the device id in exception to enable the charging of iphone but it also enable the storage of device.
