Why my iPhone won't charge

Why Won't My iPhone Charge? Your Ultimate Guide to Troubleshooting

Ever found yourself in a sticky situation where your trusty iPhone or iPad just refuses to charge?

You plug it in, expecting that satisfying 'buzz' and the comforting battery icon, but instead, you're met with...silence. It's like showing up to a party and realizing you've got the wrong address.

"Why is my iPhone not charging?" you might ask. Or, "Why isn't my phone charging even though it's plugged in?" Well, you're not alone in this tech conundrum, and we at Kixup Repairs are here to help.

1. Check Your Charging Cable: First things first, let's play detective with your charging cable. Is it frayed or damaged? If it looks like it's been through a few too many battles, it might be time for a replacement. Remember, a healthy charger is a happy charger!

2. Inspect Your Charging Port: Did you know your charging port can become a cozy home for dust and lint? Gently clean it out with a toothpick or small brush1. But be careful - it's not a digging expedition!

3. Try a Different Power Source: Sometimes, the issue might be with your power source. Try charging from a different outlet or even a computer. It's like when your favourite coffee shop is closed, so you try the one next door and discover they make an amazing cappuccino!

4. Hard Reset Your Device: When all else fails, a hard reset might do the trick. It's like giving your iPhone or iPad a mini-vacation so it can come back refreshed.

5. Optimised Battery Charging: Your iPhone might stop charging at 80% due to a feature called 'Optimised Battery Charging'. This is actually a good thing as it slows down battery aging.

But what if your iPhone 7 won't charge, or your iPhone X isn't charging? Don't panic! These steps apply to all models. And if you've tried everything and your iPhone still doesn't charge, it might be time to bring in the pros (that's us!).
