Iphone is not recognized on OSX Mojave

I have problems when I connect my iPhone 7 to Mojave OSx (virtualized in VirtualBox). The iPhone is not completely recognized into OSX, as you can see in the attached images when I plugged in, OSx opens photo application, but it doesn't show anything. Also, XCode and Simulator applications don't recognize the iPhone.

I've configured virtualBox USB ports using a filter.

These are the current application versions:

VirtualBox Versión 6.0.2 r128162 (Qt5.6.2)
Mojave version 10.14

By the what, I have El Capitan OSx versión virtualized and here the iphone is recognized and I can see the content but I can't use on Xcode because the version is older and is not possible update the version.

Please any help will be appreciated

You do not have an OSX Host, you have a Windows Host, and unfortunately OSX guests are only supported on Apple hardware (which you do not have). See: Important notice regarding Mac OS X as Guest.

And from the User Manual, ch. 3.1.1 Mac OSX Guests (emphasis mine):
Mac OS X is commercial, licensed software and contains both license and technical restrictions that limit its use to certain hardware and usage scenarios. You must understand and comply with these restrictions.

In particular, Apple prohibits the installation of most versions of Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware.

These license restrictions are also enforced on a technical level. Mac OS X verifies that it is running on Apple hardware. Most DVDs that accompany Apple hardware check for the exact model. These restrictions are not circumvented by Oracle VM VirtualBox and continue to apply.

In the really rare case (0.001%) that this is actually an Apple computer, in which you have installed Windows, and you're trying to boot a legitimate OSX guest and not a Hackintosh, send me a PM and I'll remedy the situation. Be prepared to provide evidence in such a case.

Moving to "OSX Guests" from "Windows Hosts".
