What would you like to do?
do not automatically mount apple devices in ubuntu (fix for mounting iphone in mac-guest in vmware)
# if you're running mac osx inside a vmware virtual machine, mounting an iphone into it can be cumbersome because ubuntu always claims the device for itself.
# sometimes it still works to mount it into the vm, but most of the time it doesn't.
# to fix that we simply never mount apple-devices on our ubuntu host, so that vmware is able to claim them for the guest.
# this ignores all apple usb-devices on your ubuntu host!
echo 'ATTRS{idVendor}=="05ac", ENV{UDISKS_IGNORE}="1"' | sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/100-local.rules
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules && sudo udevadm trigger

i don't know why, but you have to run that last command again every time you reboot your host
