    How long have you been using an Apple iPhone? And how old is the iPhone model you are using? iPhones are considered to be among the most premium smartphones offering great performance. But there are instances when your iPhone either charges slowly or sometimes even stops getting charged. Have you dealt with such situations? Well we have a solution for you. According to the information provided by Apple over its support page, if your battery won't charge or charges slowly, or if an alert message appears, here is what to do.

    Plug into power: To charge your device, follow these steps:

    1. Connect your device to the USB cable that comes with it.

    2. Plug into one of these three power sources:

    Wall power outlet: Plug your USB charging cable into a USB power adapter, then plug the adapter into the wall.

    Computer: Plug your charging cable into a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on a computer that's on and not in sleep mode. Don’t use the USB ports on your keyboard.

    Power accessory: Plug your cable into a powered USB hub, docking station, or other Apple-certified accessory.

    If you are trying to charge wirelessly with an iPhone 8 or later, first make sure that you can charge with the USB cable that came with your device. If that works, then get help with wireless charging. Also Read: How to type in Hindi on WhatsApp on iPhone and Android

    When your device charges, a lightning bolt appears inside the battery icon in the status bar, or a large battery icon on your Lock Screen.

    What to do if your Apple iPhone charges slowly or won’t charge:

    Step 1:

    Check your charging cable and USB adapter for signs of damage, like breakage or bent prongs. Don't use damaged accessories.

    Step 2:

    Use a wall power outlet and check for firm connections between your charging cable, USB wall adapter, and wall outlet or AC power cable, or try a different outlet.

    Step 3:

    Remove any debris from the charging port on the bottom of your device, then firmly plug your charging cable into your device. If the charging port is damaged, your device probably needs service.

    Step 4:

    Let your device charge for a half hour.

    Step 5:

    If your device is still unresponsive, force restart your device.

    Step 6:

    Let your device charge for another half hour.

    Step 7:

    If your device still won't power on or charge, take your device, charging cable, and charging adapter to an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for evaluation.
