I have discovered something that happens when my iPhone is plugged in to my computer and I have Photoshop running. In Console on my Mac, these two lines of activity occur once every second:

11/3/15 10:58:50.233 AM[86]: HandleUSBMuxDictionary client 0x7ff802b03830-node-usbmux/com.adobe.webpa.preview.usbmux using library node-usbmux, running usbmuxd-364

11/3/15 10:58:50.234 AM[86]: MuxTCPInputSCE received RST for 0x2-d2574285a2b6743eb6f3947b7ec68c78cc4662e8@0x40110000:43256->0x7ff802b03830-node-usbmux/com.adobe.webpa.preview.usbmux:33395: handleConnectResult: failure - 61

It only stops occurring if I either unplug the phone or quit Photoshop.

Those messages are from the OS USB driver, and have nothing to do with Photoshop. Those errors need to be shown to Apple, so they can fix the issue in the USB driver code.

Hey, Steven,

Actually, those console messages are probably a result of the new Device Preview feature that shipped with Adobe Photoshop CC 2015. Device Preview allows you to live preview artboards and documents on a paired iOS device, either over USB or Wi-Fi. Since you've connected your iPhone via USB, those messages are probably resulting from the paired connection.

If you are interested in learning more about Device Preview, you can refer to this link for more information:

Hope this helps,
