We tested this extensively during MX-16 development on iPhone 6, 6S and 7. Then put the results in--of all places on earth--the Users Manual:

Through the iPhone 4 series, MX Linux is able to mount an iPhone in Thunar and reveal its contents for manipulation. Since iOS 5.0, iPhones will not allow a Linux installation to be recognized as a “trusted connection.” File transfer is still possible via an Apple wifi file transfer app or a cloud storage service. See also Section 4.2.
A successful strategy was described for iPhone 6 in this tutorial, but as of this writing it no longer appears to work. Users interested in trying to pursue that should install the package mx-iphone, pair with the command idevicepair pair and then try to continue with mounting iFuse.
The good news: photos can be retrieved by opening Shotwell with the phone attached, then clicking on the link that appears under Cameras. Note that the phone link may not work in Thunar.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, SSD 120 GB, Data 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
Personal: XPS 13, 4.18.0-19.3-liquorix, 4 GB

Strange. First thing I did was search for iPhone in the manual but nothing popped up.
Desktop: Intel i5-4460, 16GB RAM, Intel integrated graphics
Clevo N130WU-based Ultrabook: Intel i7-8550U (Kaby Lake R), 16GB RAM, Intel integrated graphics (UEFI)
ASUS X42D laptop: AMD Phenom II, 6GB RAM, Mobility Radeon HD 5400

I just have my iPhone send the picture to my email as an attachment then save it on my desktop.
