In this video, a former Apple Tech explains what to do when your iPhone won’t charge. There are four main components to the charging process: your iPhone charger, Lightning cable, your iPhone’s Lightning port, and your iPhone’s software.

First, try performing a hard reset. This doesn’t always work, but it can occasionally fix the problem if your iPhone’s software crashed, causing it to appear like it wasn’t charging.

Next, we recommend trying multiple chargers and Lightning cables, inspecting each one for physical damage. If any one of the physical components in the charging process is broken or malfunctioning, then your iPhone won’t charge. Many times, the issue is caused by a cheap, “gas station” Lightning cable that’s not Apple MFi certified.

Also try cleaning out your iPhone’s Lightning port. If there’s any gunk, lint, or debris in the charging port, it can block your Lightning cable from making a clean connection to the Lightning port. We recommend using an anti-static brush, but if you don’t have one, a toothbrush will suffice.

Finally, try DFU restoring your iPhone. Make sure to watch our DFU tutorial! Watch our video about how to perform a DFU restore when your iPhone won’t charge: https://youtu.be/qfas8iSqcaA

If your iPhone won’t charge after a DFU restore, it may need to be repaired. Visit your local Apple Store, or check out CellSavers and have your iPhone fixed within an hour!
