I recently dropped my iPhone from a height of 1 foot to the floor and now my screen is broken and unresponsive to input in some areas. In an attempt to salvage any data on the phone I wanted to connect it to my Macbook via USB cable. When I do so, there is a prompt on the computer to 'allow this device' to do something or other, and another prompt on the phone to 'Trust This Computer'. The issue is that the lower section of the screen that is damaged will not respond to input, so I am unable to finish the connection by pressing the prompt.
Is there way to turn off some setting that will automatically allow the device to connect to my Macbook? Or another way to salvage the data on the phone? I don't want to invest in a new screen as the phone is really old, and it would be a waste of money.
