Whenever the iPhone is connected to your PC, a digital camera notification pops up on your screen due to the computer recognising the device as a digital camera, according to Apple. This auto-detection feature is the default setting for your Windows-based PC and can be disabled if you do not wish to import your iPhone's photos to your computer's photo library. Once the autoplay feature is disabled, the notification window will no longer appear when the iPhone is connected.
