When I plug into the wall it charges, no problem. When I plug into my computer it keeps beeping (charging then not charging) continuously.

Would appreciate some help!


MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011), OS X Mountain Lion, Magic trackpad

    Fixed the problem by syncing my Photos!

    In iTunes>Photos.Sync Photos from iPhoto

    Check the all photos, albums, Events, and Faces dot

    Let it sync

    And then the beeping and connecting/disconnecting seems to have stopped!

    Hope this helps someone else.

    Hi

    I have the same problem.

    But I cannot find the sync option because my iphone will not connect properly.

    I have never synced my iphone before on my new macbook. Maybe that's the problem?

    I would really appreciate some help! Thanks!

    Hi Nicky,

    While this solved my problem temporarily it came back a few months later and I took the iPhone to the apple store. They checked the connections and felt that the charging port was faulty and so replaced the phone. Since that, I've had not problems with the new phone suggesting that it must have been hardware rather than software all along.

     

    If you've never synced before though, perhaps it is software. In iTunes on your MacBook, if you plug in the iPhone it should come up as a drop down box in top corner. Once you click on your phone you can change the sync settings. I'd try that before anything else.
