Fluff in the Charging Port causing problems in York
We get contacted most days by people having charging issues with their iPhones. Either the port feels stiff and they have to force the charging lead in to make it work, wrapping the lead around the phone and holding it in place with a hairband, or just not knowing what to do and the phone going flat.
Most of these problems are, well apart from the one with tin-foil in and the one with the stone in and the occasional one that has actually failed – just build up of debris and dirt, generally just fluff in the port.
If you read this article you should check your port anyway maybe and save yourself some bother long-term. Most people’s port have the fluff in (see picture)

Happy to do it for you. We operate a mobile service where we come to you and fit at your home/workplace. It would typically take 20 minutes and would cost £39.99.
Before you decide to have the port replaced can I suggest you try poking around in the opening with a fine pair of tweezer or a stiff needle and see what comes out. You can’t do any damage but 1 in 3 charging port request I get are solved by taking fluff and debris out.
This is the response we get back…
