Clean the Lightning Port

Let’s begin with the easiest method before we move to some real fixes dealing with hardware and software problems. Firstly, you need to make sure that the lightning port has accumulated debris including lint and dust particles. If you haven’t cleaned the ports for a long time, you are going to find tons of pocket lint resting inside the port. They hamper the process of charging the iPhone by not letting you form a connection.

Keep a toothpick handy and begin digging the lightning port to remove all the clutter stored inside the port; be careful not to damage the inner components.

Reboot your iPhone

When you do not turn off your iPhone for a long time, it starts running into unexpected issues like this one. This is because an iPhone is an electronic device that needs to be shut down from time to time for its proper functioning. So let’s restart your iPhone and see if it starts charging on reboot.

iPhone without a home button: Long press either the volume up button or the volume down button along with the wake button until you see the power off slider on your iPhone screen. Now drag the slider all towards the right to shut down your Apple device. Now wait for some time and hit the wake button to power on your iPhone.

iPhone with home button: Long press the power button until the power off slider appears on the screen. Drag the slider towards the left to shut down your iPhone. Press the side button to turn it on.

Ensure your charger is in proper condition

If the about two methods did not do any good to your iPhone, you should ensure that the iPhone charger is in good condition. Check for signs of cuts and burns on the sockets and the charger cord. If the cable is loose, you should go for some other lightning port.

Note: Make sure to purchase the official charger by Apple or the brands recommended by Apple. Do not purchase any third-party charger as they can run into situations like these anytime.

If you keep getting Accessory isn’t supported error on your iPhone while your iPhone does not charge, it means you are using a third-party charger that Apple does not recommend at all.

  • In iOS 15 or later: head to iPhone settings. Now go to General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Reset > Reset All Settings.
