My iPhone 5 will not charge has anyone else got this problem?
When I plug the lightning cable in its as if the phone registers this but it will not charge.
I am also unable to transfer any data across to the phone.
The phone has been rebooted several times but still no luck,
I just discovered that I am having the same problem when charging the phone from the USB port charger on a computer. I just plugged it into a wall outlet and it is now charging fine. I am wondering if it's a hardware/software problem of the computer being used to charge the phone. Maybe it's not recognizing the new lightning cable? Try using an AC outlet to charge.
I had to restart syncing 5 times into itunes because just putting the phone down on my lap disconnected me from itunes. if I just tap the part of the lightning cable thats plugged into the phone it disconnects I have had enough with this **** thing already. I was so excited and Ive had literally 5 hours of misery. I don't want to stand in line at apple for hours to get a new cable/phone, who knows. Its plugged into the wall right now and chargingbut if I wiggle the cord it disconnects. I hope its not a design flaw.
Having the same problem. Posted this in another therad on the issue:
After moving the plug around, I can get it to charge/connect to my computer if I push it towards the phone and pull up, but only with one side of the connector. The other side never connects, no matter what angle of force is applied.
Physically, it must be an issue with the pins in the iPhone connecting fully with the pins on the Lightning connector. Because all Lightning connectors must be near-identical, I unfortunately think that it's a problem with the phone itself.
I'm bummed. I may fool around with it a bit more to see if I can gather more data, but it looks like I'll be scheduling for a replacement when Apple Stores near me get another shipment. Until then I'll have to fashion a rubberband apparatus for it to charge.
Please, if anyone reading this is also having this problem, post as much detail as you can about the problem. I would love this to just be an issue with the Lightning cable, but, we'll see.
