lightning connector tip broken and stuck in charge port
When removing the charge cable from my ipad mini, the tip of the lightning connector has snapped off inside the ipad charging port. Took it to Apple who cannot get it out and say they can only replace the whole ipad for £250! Surely there is a way of removing it without having to replace the ipad? Any suggestions
I found a great way to "pick" out the broken charger tip. Take a large sewing needle and insert it in a coax cable straight union, $1.50 at Walmart and thread a cap on it. This gives you something to hold onto when picking out the broken tip. Took me about an hour but it eventually came out. Apple iPad was not repairable but we proved them wrong once again.

I put a bit of Crazy Glue on the cable side, put the tip and the cable together, waited for it to dry (like a minute or so), then pulled it out with no problems.

You can take the device to some third party trusted local service center. They can take the broken thing out from the device and fix the issue.

My husband used a very tiny bit in a battery powered drill and drilled in the middle of the piece stuck in the charging port then wriggled the tip back and forth. The piece came out immediately without any damage. Ellie Cardillo

Had the same issue. Got eyeglass repair kit and the tiny point worked perfect. Took less than a minute!
