Question: iTunes doesn't recognize iphone x

I have the latest version of iTunes and the latest update of ios, but when I connect my iphone x to the computer I always get the message:

The iPhone "iPhone X" cannot be used because it requires a newer version of iTunes. Go to to download the latest version of iTunes.

I reinstalled iTunes several time, but still the same, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, and I still get the same message.

iPhone X, iOS 11.2.1

You may have a older pc?

Go to iCloud on iPhone make sure iCloud back up is on Then backup now over your wifi.

When you charge an iphone / ipad it automatically backs up to iCloud Over your wifi

When you need to restore iPhone just set back up over your wifi when it asks if you want to use iCloud backup Say yes to get your apps and data back.

I haven't used pc for backup for 3 years All done over wifi.

Go to i books download ios 11 user guide &iPhone X guide both are free.
