Apple iPhone or iPad not charging on iOS 16 or iPadOS 16
According to recent reports, numerous Apple iPhone and iPad users running iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are experiencing charging issues (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).
The affected Apple users say that when they plug in their iPhone/iPad, it displays that it is charging. However, upon checking the devices after a few minutes or hours, the battery percentage shows no gain.
Some individuals report that their device shuts off after depleting the battery while charging. This happens even though they use the original Apple power adaptor and wire.
Several users claim that they first discovered this problem after updating to iOS 16. Furthermore, this problem appears to persist even after the most recent update.
I have a new iPad I received today. It will no longer charge. I have tried a hard reset, but it still will not charge. Any suggestions?
My phone was under 10% last night when I went to bed. I plugged it in and saw the symbol in the corner that it was charging. I woke up this morning and my phone is completely dead. I’ve tried several different cords with several different boxes and two wireless chargers, but I cannot get my phone to power on.
As per a user, the device charges normally while turned off (shutdown). As a result, it is reasonable to assume that it is solely a software issue and has nothing to do with the device, power adapter, or cable utilized.
Unfortunately, there is still no official acknowledgment of the issue from Apple support. However, they provided a few troubleshooting methods. So give them a try :
Another user claims that the issue was fixed by activating the ‘Developer mode’:
as of today, I realized activating developer mode in “Settings -> Privacy and Security -> Developer mode” fixes the issue. i guess it’s some kind of permission problem with that.
