    My iPhone 7 Plus Is Not Charging . Here’s The Real Fix!

    Troubleshooting Steps When An iPhone 7 Plus Is Not Charging

    1. Hard Reset Your iPhone

    1. Press and hold the power button and the volume down button together until the screen goes blank and the Apple logo appears on the screen.
    2. When the Apple logo reappears, let go of both buttons.
    3. When your iPhone turns back on, the hard reset is complete.

    2. Inspect Your iPhone's Charging Port (Lightning Port)

    You should frequently inspect your Lightning port, also known as the charging port, to make sure it is clean. Lint, gunk, and other debris can prevent your Lightning port from making a solid connection with your Lightning cable.

    How Do I Inspect My iPhone's Charging Port (Lightning Port)?

    1. Use a flashlight to see if there is lint, gunk, or any other debris in your iPhone's Lightning port.
    2. If you find debris in your iPhone's Lightning port, gently brush it out with a new toothbrush or anti-static brush.

    3. Inspect Your iPhone Cable (Lightning Cable)

    1. Use a flashlight and look closely at both ends of your Lightning cable. These cables can become worn and tend to fray, especially at the end with the Lightning connector.
    2. If you see no visible signs of damage, try charging your device using both a USB port on a computer and the wall adapter which came with your iPhone. If your Lightning cable works with one, but not the other, then your cable is not the problem.
    3. Try charging your device with a friend's or family member's Lightning cable. If their cable works while yours doesn't, then you've identified that the problem is your Lightning cable.

    4. Inspect Your iPhone Charger

    1. Charge your iPhone with multiple different power sources. If you normally use your wall charger, try using a USB port on your laptop, and vice versa.
    2. If your iPhone charges with one power source but not the other, then you know that the charger is causing your problem.

    5. DFU Restore Your iPhone

    1. Using a Lightning cable, plug your iPhone into a USB port on your computer.
    2. Open iTunes. It doesn’t matter if your iPhone is on or off.
    3. On an iPhone 7 or newer, press and hold the power and volume down button.  
    4. After 8 seconds, release the Power Button, but continue to hold the volume down button
    5. Let go of the volume down button when iTunes says “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.”
    6. Your iPhone’s display will be completely black if you’ve successfully entered DFU mode. If it’s not, try again from the beginning.
    7. Restore your iPhone using iTunes.
