Charging cord doesn't connected well
When I try to plug in my charger to the phone, it seems loose, connects but then not. I have to wiggle it until it finally says “charging” and try to set it down carefully or this process starts all over again.
The Lightning cable 8-pin connector should be sitting flush with the housing and completely inserted. If it is not, there could be lint/dust/debris inside the port impeding a proper connection. You can clean it out with fine point tweezers or a dental pick. Just be careful not to damage the pins inside the Lightning Port.
