When you’re having charging issues with your iPhone it’s pretty easy to start blaming a faulty cable or even the iPhone itself. (Don’t worry: been there, done that.)
But what most people overlook is the build-up of dirt in your iPhone’s charging port, and that prevents the cable from having a perfect connection inside the port. It’s inevitable really; your iPhone is probably thrown into trouser pockets, jacket pockets, bags and everywhere in between, so over time the ports will to build up dust & lint.
So if you’re having issues with your iPhone constantly disconnecting from the charger, check if there are any clumps of dirt/lint. If there are, grab a toothpick, needle or SIM-card pin and gently ease them out. You can also try using a can of compressed air to blow it out too.
