iPhone 6s lightening lead won't go in

PostPosted by stuart » Tue Dec 06, 2016 12:36 am

My 6s lightning lead will not go in. It was fine until this evening. I've tried other iPhone lightning leads I got, they don't work. I can't see any dust or anything in the port. I've removed the case & the problem persists. Has anyone got any ideas

Soft brush like child's toothbrush in the port to loosen whatever blocking it.
Failing that, take to apple.
That's all I can think of bud

So...........what was it?
Grammar. The difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.

It was fluff but lodged in so far that only my mate used something to get it out. No idea what he used

Best tool I use for the fluff issue is the plastic toothpick on my swiss army knife . (you can just buy replacement picks some places sell individually )
