iPhones have been designed to optimise its charging sequence. Sometimes your iPhone may turn charges slowly or won’t charge at all.
This can be attributed several issues including our iPhone’s charging port, charging cable, charger, or software.
If your iPhone charges slowly or won’t charge, follow the below guidelines to fix it.
- First check your charging cable and USB adapter for signs of damage, like breakage or bent prongs.
- Use a wall power outlet and check for firm connections between your charging cable, USB wall adapter, and wall outlet or AC power cable, or try a different outlet.
- Remove any debris from the charging port on the bottom of your device, then firmly plug your charging cable into your device. If the charging port is damaged, your device probably won’t charge and may require servicing.
- Let your device charge for a half hour [if your device is unresponsive afterwards, try a force restart ]
Force restart your device:
- iPhone 8 or later and iPhone SE (2nd generation): Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.
- iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPod touch (7th generation): Press and hold both the Side (or Top) button and the Volume Down button until you see the Apple logo.
- iPhone 6s or earlier, iPhone SE (1st generation), and iPod touch (6th generation) or earlier: Press and hold both the Side (or Top) button and the Home button until you see the Apple logo.
- Let your device charge for another half hour.
If your device still won’t charge or power on, take your device, charging cable, and charging adapter to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for evaluation.
