Solution 4: Try Another Wall Outlet or USB Port

Solution 5: Check Lightning Cable

The lightning cable of your iPhone/iPad is vulnerable to wear and tear during use. Head to connect it with your computer to verify whether there is something wrong. If no respond shown standing for successful detection and recognition, or you can see visible sign of wear, you'd better get a new lightning cable.

Solution 6: Use Apple's Official Charger

Solution 7: Uninstall Battery-Killing App

Go for "Settings" > "Battery" > "Battery Usage" to see which app running on your iPhone/iPad consumes more power apparently compared to other ones.

Solution 8: Turn Off iPhone/iPad

If you keep iPhone or iPad open without cutting off network connection, some apps run on background will continue to drain battery. Go to turn off it so that you can charge iPhone/iPad faster.
