Newbie question: does iPhone need to be unlocked for o.mg cable to retrieve any data?

The cable wouldn't be able to connect at all until after the the device is unlocked.

At that point, Apple would prompt the user whether they trust the "computer" it's connected to. If the cable is connected to only a wall charger, this would raise some eyebrows.

Ultimately, the best way to answer these questions is to buy an o.mg cable and an iphone.

You can connect an iPhone to a PC and it will charge, but nothing more. To transfer data, you need to unlock your smartphone and click "Trust this PC". Only after that you will be able to transfer data. It can be Windows Explorer, iTunes or other third-party software. Do not forget to disable third-party software on the PC before disconnecting the cable from the phone. So that there are no such problems as I have, that the iPhone does not see contacts and so on.

iOS doesn't throw prompts if the device presents itself as a keyboard 😈
