If Image Capture doesn’t open when you connect a device to your Mac
If Image Capture doesn’t open when you connect a scanner, camera, iOS device, iPadOS device or other device with a camera to your Mac, change settings in Image Capture preferences.
Connect your device to your computer, then turn the device on.
You may be asked to unlock your device with a passcode or to trust the device.
In the Image Capture app on your Mac, select the device in the Devices or Shared list.
Click the Show Hide button in the lower-left corner of the Image Capture window.
Click the “Connecting this [device] opens” pop-up menu, then choose Image Capture.
Click “Show device settings” if you don’t see that pop-up menu.
