iPad won’t charge? Top 6 solutions to fix it!

As a big-screen electronic product, iPad is popular. Although iOS system is very advanced, some Apple users still meet some issues. For example, someone might be confused that why his iPad won’t charge. In general, there are two aspects of reasons: hardware issues (damaged cable or port) and the issues of iOS system itself). In the following content, I will introduce several methods for you to fix the iPad won’t charge issue.

Solution 1: Try another outlet

First, we should get rid of the effect of other factors (not iPad itself or its cable or charging port). If you hold charge your device by an outlet on wall, disconnect the iPad and plug it into the outlet again. Loose connection may leab to this situation. If the operation cannot return your iPad to normal charge, switch another data line or connect to a computer to charge. If you plug your iPad into PC for charging first, check for the computer or directly switch another computer.

Solution 2: Inspect the charging port of iPad

If you have attempted the first solution and the problem still exists, it shows that external conditions are normal. Keep reading, try another way.

A default charging port can cause the disconnection between the device and the outlet. Why the port is damaged? First, junk or debris lead to a poor contact. Second, the port is broken if you ever dropped the iPad before. You can clear up the port on the bottom of your iPad to avoid the former. However, if the second situation happened, go to an Apple shop near you to fix it.

Solution 3: Switch a different Apple cable

If there is nothing wrong on the outlet and the port, checking the Apple cable between them is necessary. The cable is easy to damage. Sometimes it is put into water accidentally, affecting its life span or damaging it thoroughly. There are some chemical factors. For instance, the data line is parted and the interface is crooked. In that case, switching another cable is the easiest and fasted way.
