If the iPhone starts to charge poorly, the reason for this is not always cable problems. You may need to pay attention to the charging port.
The iPhone charging port is located in an area prone to dust and dirt. It is because of this that the gadget starts to charge poorly. But, there is a way out of this situation - it is necessary to clear it.
A common method is to clean the charging port with a toothpick. But, it is necessary to use it as carefully as possible, since there is a great risk of damaging anything inside.
Why iPhone won't charge
There are many reasons that can lead to iPhone not charging. And first of all, you need to check the cable for operability, and only after that consider the option of a problem with the port.
If, when the charger is connected, the smartphone does not charge or does it incorrectly, all this can be determined by the following symptoms:
- there is no charge indicator;
- there is a charge indicator, but the iPhone does not charge for a long time;
- the iPhone charges only if the Lightning cable is in a specific position.
Since iPhones do not have a hinged cover for the charging port, they automatically turn into a dust collector. Over time, dust, lint, dirt, and various debris can accumulate in the connector.
Every time the Lightning cable connection process takes place, the dirt is compressed. And in the final result, all this can lead to the fact that the charging contacts are blocked.
Perhaps very soon this problem will disappear, given that new models will gradually switch to wireless charging. But, old devices need to be cleaned regularly and the ports must be kept clean.
