But it is possible that we sometimes ask ourselves the following question  : Why is my iPhone not charging the battery or turning on and how to fix it?

At this moment the alarms have been turned on and we feel that our world is collapsing and above all in the uncertainty of not knowing if we can repair our cellphone.

I know this is an extreme situation and the more time passes without your mobile device responding, the greater the anguish. But as we have already told you, there could be several causes that are causing this terrible problem. But we show you that the solution can be as simple as activating the alarm, going to bed, or going to sleep.

Why is my iPhone not charging the battery or turning on and how to fix it?

There are many reasons why a iPhone can present this problem and in most of them it is due to misuse by the owner. For example, accidental falls or getting wet can prevent these devices from turning on. Or that they become filled with a liquid that penetrates inside causing this failure.

It is also possible that some buttons, for example the power button, have stopped working, remember that the wear of parts is inevitable.



Another possible problem that arises is with the phone's charging connector or with the battery charger same . If possible, get another one and try it out to see if it works with this new charger.

Possible failures and solutions when my iPhone won't charge the battery or won't turn on

The operating system may also have faults that prevent the cell phone from turning on, in these cases you can try to perform a Hard Reset.

To do this, you will connect the iPhone via a USB cable to the computer. Obviously to do this you need to have iTunes installed on your PC.

Now you need to make sure that it is recognized by the application and that your mobile turns on, this way you can rule out problems.

Since if the device turns on like this, it can be sure that the power button is damaged. But first and to make sure there is no problem with the software, you need to restore iPhone from iTunes.

In case the device has not been recognized and does not turn on, you need to do the following, we will try a combination of keys and these will depend on the model you use.

If you own a iPhone 6s, 6s Plus or earlier than these, you have to press the side power button and the home button at the same time, until the connection to iTunes appears on the screen.


If your mobile model is 7 and 7 Plus, you need to press the volume up and down buttons at the same time, you don't have to release them until the Connect to iTunes message appears.


Now if you have a device of the 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max, XR, 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max models. You need to quickly press and release the volume up and down button.


Then you have to hold down the side power button, until the Connect to iTunes message appears. Once you have done these operations on your mobile device and you are not receiving any signal from it, then it is best that you take it to a technical service Apple but first you can go to their website and search for information.
