iPhone won’t charge? Try these tips

I would like to say hi!

No one likes to see an iPhone that won’t charge, but with the help of these tips, you may be able to solve the problem.

An iPhone that won’t charge is quite a worrisome problem considering how expensive they are.
Has the end of the craze finally come?
Will it need to be replaced or will it just need an expensive repair?
Although iPhones are among the best phones available, mistakes can and do happen.

Fortunately, there are some actions you can take to either force your iPhone to charge again or determine if there’s an underlying problem.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to periodically check your iPhone’s overall battery health under the Battery option in the Settings app.
You will be able to determine how long your iPhone will live this way.

Let’s focus on what to do if your iPhone is not charging right now.

How to fix an iPhone that won’t charge

  1. Review your cable.
  2. Change the power adapter or wall outlet if necessary.
  3. Disinfect the charging port.
  4. When charging your iPhone, be patient.
  5. I feel the iPhone.
  6. Consider a wireless charger.
  7. Force your iPhone to restart.

Review your cable

Let’s start by trying to determine the problem.
To begin with, thoroughly inspect the cable for damage.

It is extremely common for the charging cable to break while being removed from your iPhone.
While you could try to fix this by covering it with electrical tape, it’s actually better to throw away the frayed cable and buy a new one.
At some point, Apple might improve on poor iPhone charger cables.

Ask if the cable that came with the iPhone is original and if it appears to be in good condition.
If not, look for the original cable if you can, and if not, borrow it from someone else.

Change the power adapter or wall outlet

We want to continue to isolate the problem.
Try plugging the power adapter into a different wall outlet.

If the problem persists, plug a different device into each outlet and see if it works.

Clean the charging port

Dirt often collects inside your iPhone’s charging port.
Cleaning the charging port is the answer as lint or ordinary debris will interfere with the proper attachment of the charging cable.

We advise you to check out how to clean an iPhone charging port without breaking it for comprehensive instructions.
Generally, you should turn off your iPhone and use a toothpick or compressed air.

After cleaning the charging port, insert the cable and plug it into the wall outlet.

When charging your iPhone, be patient

Don’t rush if your iPhone is simply completely out of battery.

Apple suggests letting the device charge for 30 minutes, although the iPhone will usually come back to life in a few minutes.

At this point, you can reverse the cable and try it from the other end.

Feel the iPhone

It is possible that the iPhone is exhausted.
First, hold the iPhone in the palm of your hand and, if it feels too hot or cold, let the temperature rise or fall.

Try moving your device out of the sun, bringing it inside from the cold, learning how to close apps, update iOS, or turn it off briefly to fix the problem.
Additionally, you can put your iPhone into low-power mode.

Use a wireless charger

There may be a problem with your iPhone’s port connection.
You can rule this out or confirm the problem by using a wireless charger.

Find the best wireless charger for your iPhone if you don’t already have one.

Force your iPhone to restart

It’s possible that your iPhone has simply stopped working and needs to be restarted.
Depending on your iPhone model, there are many ways to achieve this, so we’ll start with the newest and work our way back.

iPhone 8 and later, iPhone SE (2nd or 3rd generation) restarts by pressing and quickly releasing the volume up button.
You press the volume down button and let go.
Press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo.

You will restart iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus by holding down the volume down button while simultaneously holding the side or top (volume up) button.
Release the buttons when the Apple logo appears.

iPhone SE (first generation), iPhone 6s, or older restarts by holding down the side or top button while pressing the Home button.
