iPhone Charging But Not Turning On {Solved}

iPhone! A name that describes how particular this phone is. It’s magnificent unless your phone is working perfectly. Do you know when the problem occurs? When your phone doesn’t work perfectly. You may face a lot of problems while using this phone. Say, for example, you may see your iPhone charging but not showing a lightning bolt, or you may say that my iPhone won’t charge, but it says it’s charging, and so on.

But today, we will discuss a widespread issue that we used to hear: iPhone charging but not turning on! Once you face this problem, indeed you will be tensed a lot. But please don’t worry.

iPhone Charging But Not Turning On – Probable Reasons

So as we said earlier, we would talk about the problems, so we will talk about a few probable reasons before going for the solutions.

  1. Your Charging Cable And Charging Jack Cause The Issue. Yes, sir, it may sound quite normal but trust us, which often causes the problem. After using the cable for a more extended period, the capability of the cable and jack decreases. Thus it becomes unable to charge your phone ideally. So you have to focus on that.
  2. Did You Harm The Charging Port? We often visit a lot of places. We keep our phones along with us. But you know when the problem occurs? Once we visit a dusty place or once we walk in a rainy environment, there is a high opportunity that a small amount of dust may go inside of our charging port. Or a tiny amount of water may get inside of the port. It is not like the phone will stop working instantly. But once this happens in a continuous form, then trust us, it will cause problems.

What About The Hardware Of The Phone?
