Possible Causes Of IPhone not showing on your computer
·         Older version of Windows OS
·         iTunes not being updated
·         Older version of IPhone OS
·         IPhone Drivers being Out-Of-Date

Solution to the problem
Update Windows, update iTunes and make sure your iPhone is running the latest firmware. 
Restart your iPhone and PC. And connect your phone using the original Apple USB cable.
Update iPhone drivers. Open Control Panel > Hardware and Sound and then look for Apple iPhone under the "Unspecified" section. Right-click on it, choose "Properties" and then click the Hardware tab. Click Properties and then the Change settings button. Click on the Driver tab and Update Driver… and then browse my computer for driver software. Now navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers and click Ok, then Next. You'll either see a message saying that the best driver is already installed, or a new driver will be installed. If the latter, your iPhone should now show up in iTunes.

Alternate Method
Go to Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Devices and Printers
Down there you will find your iPhone. Right click on it and click Properties.
Click Hardware and again Properties. In General click Change settings.
Now go to Driver and uninstall your iPhone. After your iPhone was uninstalled plug it again. It will install again and the computer will recognize your iPhone
