5 Tips to Fix iPhone Not Charging After iOS 10.3.2/iOS 10.3.3 Update
1. Force restart your iPhone
The simplest way to fix many minor iPhone issues, including iPhone charger not working, is to force restart your iPhone.
- On an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus: press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons until you see the Apple logo.
- On an iPhone 6s and earlier: press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until you see the Apple logo.
Next, try to charge your iPhone again.
2. Check iPhone charging cable and the port
There are two things you need to check. Firstly, make sure there is no damage with your charging cable. Then, check if it is the accumulated dust or pocket lint in charging port that make your iPhone won’t charge. If yes, clean the port with a pushpin carefully.
3. Change the charging cable
Some iPhone charger produced by other company may cause iPhone not charging as well as “accessory not supported” problem when plug in your iPhone. Therefore, you’d better use an Apple certified charger to charge your iPhone.
4. Switch wall outlet or USB port
Of course, it is also possible that the wall outlet or USB port doesn’t work properly. To check this, you can switch to another wall outlet or USB port to see if it fixes the iOS 10.3.3/iOS 10.3.2 charging problem.
5. Restore your iPhone
If none of solutions above works, you can restore your iPhone with iTunes to fix iPhone won’t charge in iOS 10.3.2/iOS 10.3.3. Download the latest iTunes software (iTunes 12.6) on your computer > Plug in your iPhone > Click the device icon > Choose Restore iPhone.
