The cool cutting-edge feature of wireless charge on iPhone 8 and later iPhones might fail to function properly sometimes. Bothered by the iPhone wireless charge not working issue, users will find that their iPhone cannot be charged when being placed on the wireless charger. Although you can still use the iPhone without the wireless charge feature, it would certainly be better if the problem can be resolved. To help you regain the convenience of wireless charge, we have listed the 5 best solutions to this problem.
- Method 1: Hard Reboot
- Method 2: Check Wireless Charger
- Method 3: Remove Case
- Method 4: Update iOS
- Method 5: Repair Losslessly
1. Force Restart to Fix the Wireless Charge Feature
When you found that the wireless charge feature is not working on your iPhone, the first quick fix you can carry out is force rebooting this iPhone. A hard reboot is a simple and efficient fix to the wireless charge problems caused by software bugs. How to hard reboot your iPhone? Press and quickly release the Volume up button and then the Volume down button. Hold the Side button until the logo appears.
2. Check If the Wireless Charger Is Functioning and Used Properly
When the wireless charger is not functioning normally or not used properly, it is natural that the phone cannot be charged wirelessly. There are several steps to ensure the charger is functioning and used properly.
Step 1: Place the iPhone in the right position in the charger so that it can recognize your phone any problem.
Step 2: Plug the charger to the wall outlet. Some users may mistakenly presume that the charger is just like a power bank, and they can use it without plugging it to the outlets. Besides, sockets other than the wall outlet might fail to transmit the electricity to the charger sometimes.
Step 3: If the charger is broken or unqualified, it cannot charge the phone. The quickest way to test if the charger is working is taking it to the Apple outlets nearby, where you can test the models there on the charger. If all the model phones cannot be charged either, you might want to buy a new charger.
3. Remove the Phone Case
iPhone is a fragile and expensive machine, and it is understandable that a lot of iPhone uses would use phone cases to protect it. However, when charging the iPhone wirelessly, a case that is too thick or made of super-dense materials is very likely to influence the connection between the phone and the charger. Therefore, it is recommended to charge the iPhone without the phone case. If you have to keep the phone case, please buy one that is not too thick, because an over-thick case would protect your iPhone from not only damages but also the wireless charger.
4. Update the iPhone iOS
The iPhone wireless charging feature was initially implemented in an update. Besides, an update might solve some software bugs. Therefore, you might only need to update your iPhone to get the wireless charge working. To update iPhone, go to "Settings" > "General" > "Software Update", then tap "Download and Install" if there is an update available. In fact, it would be better to update iPhone from the computer.
