To be found how to detect Apple devices when "Apple Device Support" is uninstalled.

IWMDeviceManager2::EnumDevices2 doesn't enumerate it as MTP portable device although apparently for the user from IGB-283-46258 it enumerated it (on the same Windows 7 OS).
But the device is visible in Windows Explorer as "Apple iPod" portable device (unsyncable) so there probably should be a way.

Resolved in / this way:
If iPhone/iPod is connected once MediaMonkey is already running (and 'Apple Mobile Device Support' was not detected) then this message is shown:

'The iPhone/iPod device connection was detected. Please install iTunes to be able to sync this device using MediaMonkey.'


The help link goes to

Assigned to Rusty to:
a) review wording of the message
b) Update the KB article to include iOS 10 support (from version 4.1.15).

Suggestion for updated text:

"An iPhone/iPod/iPad connection was detected. Please install iTunes in order to sync this device with MediaMonkey.
[OK] [Help]".

Also, the KB article has been updated.
