iPhone is not charging? Let us tell you why and how to fix it!

Your iPhone is plugged in, but it’s not charging. Why? You might wonder:is the iPhone broken? Is it time to upgrade?

Don’t worry, let’s see some common reasons and exclude your problems.Normally it has nothing to do with the iPhone itself (unless it was damaged).

First, make sure your iPhone is not charging.

How do you know that? When the device is plugged into a power source, look in the status bar for the battery icon. If there is a lightning bolt next to the battery icon, the iPhone is charging.

Or read on for the likely reasons and how to fix it.


1:Check the Cables Plug End!

Before moving beyond, be sure to check the plug end of the cable as well, sometimes it can accrue stuff on it that would prevent the connection from forming.

2: Change the Wall Outlet or USB Port Plugged Into

The next most common reason an iPhone won’t charge is because of where it’s actually plugged into. Sometimes the wall outlet itself isn’t working or the light switch is turned off, so if you’re using a wall charger then change the outlet.

If you’re charging the iPhone from a USB cable connected to a computer, sometimes the USB port on the computer itself is the problem. Try another USB port on the computer, PC or Mac doesn’t matter, that often fixes the issue too.


3: Check the USB Cable for Damage

Damage to the USB charging cable will prevent an iPhone from charging. This can be somewhat obvious in some situations, and if the cable is fraying or torn, well, there’s your problem. If your cable is damaged, you need a new USB cable to charge the iPhone, it’s that simple. Fortunately, you can get Aswanu Lightning USB cables that are certified and they work great and are quite durable.

* Another potential USB cable related issue that can make an iPhone not charge the battery are cheap knock-off cables that are low quality. You’ll usually encounter an error that the cable is not certified on the iPhone (or iPad) itself if this is what is causing the charging issue.


4: Check the iPhone Charging Port for Debris, Lint, Obstructions

One of the primary reasons an iPhone won’t charge is the port on the iPhone is clogged with dust, debris, pocket lint, or some other obstruction. Something quite small can easily prevent a charging cable from fitting properly into the iPhone, so the very first thing you should do is check the charging port on the iPhone and look for any crud or build-up in there. See some lint or some other wad of gremlin or crud? Get them out, preferably with something like a Q-Tip, toothpick, or a dry toothbrush. If you have a can of air, blowing it in there can help too.

Once the charging port is cleared out, try charging it again. It probably works now, right? If not, keep reading.


5: Reboot the iPhone

Rarely needed, but sometimes a simple reboot can resolve a software issue that basically refuses to acknowledge the device is charging. This is somewhat rare, but it can happen. So if you’ve tried all of the above and the iPhone battery is still not charging at all, force reboot the iPhone by holding down the Power button and Home button until you see the Apple logo, it may help.

6: Water Damage

Another very common reason for charging and power problems is water contact, or dropping an iPhone into liquid and not drying it out properly. If the iPhone has sustained excessive water damage and was not dried out properly and sufficiently, the iPhone battery is often destroyed, and other electrical components in the iPhone can also be damaged as well, which will completely prevent the iPhone from charging. Fortunately this is usually pretty easy to determine, because if your iPhone took a deep swim and it’s now not charging the battery, that’s almost certainly the reason why. Try drying it out for 72 hours or so in silica or rice, it could revive it, otherwise you may just need a new iPhone or hardware component to fix the problem.


7: The iPhone Was Severely Damaged

If the iPhone has been severely damaged, it often won’t charge. In that case, the iPhone won’t even turn on or respond to normal fixes.Well you’ll need to take it in for service, or get a new one.

Those are the most common reasons an iPhone won’t charge,hope it will be helpful.
