Having trouble charging your iPhone battery? Lately, i have been facing some issues with my iPhone, one of them is being unable to charge the iPhone. Since i found the reason why the iPhone won’t charge and possible fix. I want to share with you my experience. This issue has a fairly simple solution and most of the time have nothing to do with damage to the device.
First, let me give you a couple reasons why an iPhone will not charge, make sure that your device is not really charging. How can you check it? Just by looking at the battery indicator on the status bar. If a lightning-type icon appears next to the battery icon, the device’s battery is being charged.
In case the device is connected to the power outlet and the lightning flash icon does not appear, something is malfunctioning. Here are the most likely reasons for this problem and its possible solution. Before you start going through the list, let’s hard reset your iPhone first, if it did not work then:
1. Make sure that the charging port is free of dirt
It is one of the most common causes that an iPhone is not charging properly and luckily its solution is tremendously simple. Look at the Lightning or Dock connector on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and also the ends of the USB cable used. Do you see any lint or dirt on the inside? If so, that dirt may be causing the battery to be unable to receive power and therefore the charge is not working properly.
If you notice dirt, you must remove it with great care not to damage the connector. To do this you can help with a toothpick, a clip stretched, the bristles of a toothbrush completely dry. Another good idea is to use a can of compressed air. You should not blow directly, as doing so your saliva can easily end up inside the connector.
Once the charging port is free of dirt, try plugging the charger again. It should now work and charge the battery normally. If it still does not load, read on to find other possible solutions.
2. Change the USB port or power outlet
Another common reason why an iOS device does not charge properly is a problem with the USB port or the power outlet on which we try to charge it. Checking if this is the problem is as simple as connecting the charger to another outlet or checking that the outlet is working properly connected to another equipment that needs power to operate. In case you are trying to load the device from a USB port you must change the connector to another port to rule out a possible failure. Of course also you must prove that the charger works correctly and thus rule out that the problem does not come from there.
3. Check for possible damage to the USB cable
Physical damage to the USB cable of iOS devices may cause the charging or data transfer not to work properly. In case of problems, you must check that the cable is intact and can be tested in another device or try another cable with your device.
In case of damage to the cable you will have to replace it with a new one of the highest possible quality. Here you have two options, resorting to a new original Apple cable or resorting to some slightly cheaper cable that you can find on Amazon but certified by Apple.
Another possible failure of the USB cable is given by cables not certified by Apple. In case you have one of these cables, it is possible that the device will reject it and the load or transfer of data will not be carried out properly. In this situation you will have to replace it with an original cable or third party cable( not really recommend).
4. The iPhone is physically damaged
In case the iPhone is physically damaged the first thing to do is to evaluate the status of the device. In case you are dropped and the screen is broken or a blow in the housing does not usually cause loading problems. The contact with the water or the drop of some liquid on the terminal is not usually a reason for the load to stop working.
Other types of blow or stronger damage can cause the device to not be charged correctly. In addition, in many cases they can cause even more serious damage, which would make repair difficult and it would be necessary to carry it.
