The first thing to try is a hard reset. This forces your iPhone to abruptly turn off and back on. It’s possible your iPhone screen has gone black, making it appear like it won’t charge, even though it has been on the entire time!

Next, clean out your iPhone’s charging port. Dirt or gunk in the charging port could be preventing your iPhone from making a clean connection to your Lightning cable. It’s also a good idea to try multiple chargers and multiple cables.

If none of these steps work, back up your iPhone and put it in DFU mode.

  1. My iPhone was saying that there was water in the port when I hadn’t got it wet I’ve used multiple chargers and now it just says it’s charging for like 10 seconds then stops charging and idk what to do

  2. You guys are funny! Thanks for the info.

  3. What about the battery are too much drained what am I going to do.. My iphone is iphone 13 pro max please help me

  4. i got the port cleaned at apple store worked for a day. been having on and off charging issues for two months and it takes few tries to charge. very annoying. may have to replace the port. not the cable for sure.

  5. I’m watching this while in the Apple Store and them telling me it may cost $500 to fix. I’m not under warranty anymore

  6. nah it does emergency call now

  7. This problem is recurring and extremely irritating: I've plugged in several different cables I know are good. The iPad in this case will register the cable with a sound configuration and the charging icon will display. Then after a second I'll get the 'Not Charging' notice next to the battery icon. After a hard reset a cable plugged in will work. But if it's pulled and reinserted the 'Not Charging' BS begins again. There's no gunk in the receptacle. It's as close to pristine as it gets. This seems to clearly be some software issue but I can't find anything about it and I dread calling Apple support because one almost always gets a pleasant drone that reads trouble shooting documents and hasn't a clue about software or hardware (much less firmware)

  8. What to do if phone is dead?

  9. So 1 week i am struggeling to charge my phone and the simplest thing of simply cleaning it a bit fixed it and it now works like gold. Thx !!!

  10. Excellent video! I unplugged my charging adapter & plugged it back in, & now I am back in Business! 🙂
