How to Fix iTunes Cannot Connect to iPhone Error

-- Monday, January 08, 2018
My iPhone 6S Plus restarted itself last night and thus I intended to connect the device to iTunes and restore it. However, when I plug my phone into my laptop and load up iTunes, the message "ITunes could not connect to this iPhone, an unknown error occurred (0xE8000015)" popped up and I have no ideas what happened. Things just get worse and I give up the attempt to fix in despair right now. Can anyone help?
