How to fix iPhone charging Port
One of the oddities of the modern digital world is that while our devices have undergone mind-blowing increases in performance, miniaturization, and overall technical sophistication over the past decade or so, the battery life of those devices has increased comparatively slowly.
For example, from the iPhone 4s to the iPhone 6 four generations – battery life for using the Internet over Wi-Fi increased from 9 hours to 11 hours. This Blog explains the various tips and ways to how to fix iPhone not charging problem and also fix charging port iPhone 6 plus issues.
Apple claims the iPhone 7 Plus will get 15 hours, but even a 67 percent increase over six generations is nothing to brag about. Given the importance we place on our iOS device(iPhone and iPad), it's no wonder that the number one gripe by far among users is poor battery life and the number one request by far for each new generation is better – much better – battery performance.
Unfortunately, there are many technical reasons why we won't see a radical increase in battery life for our iOS device(iPhone and iPad) any time soon. That means we need to take steps now to monitor and maximize the batteries that we have. In this blog, we have to explain How to fix iPhone charging Port.
Tracking Battery Use
iOS doesn't give a ton of battery data, but you can monitor both the total usage time (this includes all activities: calling, surfing, playing media, and so on) and standby time (the time when your iOS device(iPhone and iPad) was in sleep mode). Also, one of the nice features in iOS is a breakdown of recent (the last three hours) battery usage by app, so you can see which apps have been draining your battery.
You Want to Know Exactly How Much Battery Power You Have Left
You Want to Know How Much You're Using Your Device on Battery Power
Apple puts out lots of battery life numbers that include both usage mode (that is when your device is on) and standby mode (when your device is asleep). But if you need to know whether your device will have enough battery power for, say, a long plane ride or some similarly extended time away from a power outlet, can you really trust Apple numbers?
Fortunately, you don't have to trust Apple on this because iOS keeps track of your devices overall battery use. Specifically, it tracks the amount of time since the last full charge that your device has been in user mode and in standby mode. By tracking these numbers over time and over several charging cycles, you'll get to know how much battery life your iOS device(iPhone and iPad) gets when you use it.
Follow these steps to view these numbers:
\1.\ On the Home screen, tap Settings to open the Settings app.
\2.\ Tap Battery to open the Battery screen.
\3.\ Scroll to the bottom of the screen and read the Usage and Standby values
Extending Battery Life in iPhone
You Want to Prevent a Specific App from Running in the Background
By regularly examining the battery usage of your apps – both as an overall percentage and as total time onscreen and in the background – you will eventually come to recognize any battery hogs.
In particular, you'll come to know which apps are using up your device battery by running background tasks. Turning off Background App Refresh for all apps seems like overkill in this case, particularly if it's just a single app that's causing a problem.
Solution: If you see that a particular app is using up a higher than average amount of battery power in background tasks, and if you don't feel it's necessary for the app to run in the background, you can deactivate Background App Refresh for just that app.
Here are the steps to follow:
\1.\ On the Home screen, tap Settings to open the Settings app.
\2.\ Tap General to open the General screen.
\3.\ Tap Background App Refresh to open the Background App Refresh screen.
\4.\ In the list of apps, tap the switch to Off beside the app you no longer want to operate in the background.
You Want to Use as Little Battery Power as Possible
Minimize the number of apps you run.
If you won't be able to charge your iOS device(iPhone and iPad) for a while, avoid background chores, such as playing music; or secondary chores, such as organizing your contacts. If your only goal is to read all your email, stick to that until it's done because you don't know how much time you have.
Make sure Auto-Lock is working.
You don't want your iOS device(iPhone and iPad) using up battery power while it's idle, so make sure Auto-Lock is on the job. Open Settings, tap Display & Brightness, tap Auto-Lock, and then tap a short time interval (such as 1 Minute on the iPhone or 2 Minutes on the iPad).
Put your iOS device(iPhone and iPad) into sleep mode manually, if necessary.
If you are interrupted – for example, the pizza delivery guy shows up on time – don't wait for your iOS device(iPhone and iPad) to put itself to sleep because those few seconds or minutes use precious battery time. Instead, put your device to sleep manually right away by pressing the Sleep/Wake button.
Turn off Wi-Fi if you don't need it.
When Wi-Fi is on, it regularly checks for available wireless networks, which drains the battery. If you don't need to connect to a wireless network, turn off Wi-Fi to conserve energy. Open Settings, tap Wi-Fi and then tap the Wi-Fi switch to Off.

Troubleshooting Other Battery Problems
As an added security measure, the iOS 11 edition of the Messages app automatically encrypts messages as they’re being sent. Plus, the newly designed App Drawer at the bottom of the Messages screen makes it easy to share a wide range of content with others, including, stickers, emojis, music, and content from third-party apps. If you use Apple Pay (or another service, like PayPal or Cash), you can instantly and securely send or receive money via the Messages app.
One feature, called Animoji, is something younger people, in particular, will enjoy. It’s available exclusively on the iPhone X, and it uses the phone’s front-facing TrueDepth camera to analyze the muscle movements on someone’s face as they’re taking or showing emotions. Then it uses that information to animate a dozen different emojis in real-time.
The result is that whether the user chooses a panda, cat, unicorn, or alien, that emoji character comes to life and replicates the facial movements of the user as he’s talking.
You can record a short message using an Animoji that has your own voice, and then paste the animated character directly into an outgoing message to be sent via iMessage.
To use this feature, tap the Animoji icon in the App Drawer, choose your favorite character, and then tap the Record button. Record your message using exaggerated facial expressions, and then move the recorded message into the message field.
When used with iMessage, the iOS 11 edition of Messages offers colorful animations, which allow users to emphasize a celebratory statement, for example, by displaying animated balloons, confetti, or fireworks on the entire screen as they send messages.
Users can also create personalized handwritten notes, using their finger as a writing instrument on the screen (or the Apple Pencil with a compatible iPad Pro), and then send those notes as messages to other iMessage users.
Because people like to communicate using emojis, iOS 11 includes a vast library of these whimsical, graphic characters, and makes it easier to insert them into outgoing text messages.
An emoji is not animated and can be sent from an iPhone or iPad. To send or receive an Animoji, however, you must have an iPhone X.
The Invisible Ink feature enables text messages to materialize on the recipient’s screen when they swipe over them. Plus, when video clips, photos, and other animated graphics are included in a text message, that content can easily be viewed from directly within the Messages app.
Communicating Effectively with the Messages App
Text messaging was designed to make communications between two or more people fast and easy. Today, “texting” has become a preferred and highly efficient form of communication.
In addition to sending and receiving text-based messages, the Messages app supports the sending and receiving of photos, video messages, video clips, emojis, virtual handwritten messages, animated backgrounds, audio messages, and content available from third parties, including virtual stickers (available from the App Store).
Available from the App Store is an ever-growing collection of third-party apps that add functionality to the Messages app, or that allow the Messages app to send and receive specific types of information or content.
To find these apps, on an iPhone, tap the App Store “A” icon that’s to the left of the Compose message field. Then from the App Drawer, tap the App Store icon. Tap the Visit Store button to browse through the selection of apps that work with the Messages app.
The apps you already have installed on your iPhone or iPad that are compatible with the Message app are displayed in the App Drawer. Tap any of these icons to select a specific type of content to send, including music from the Music app, animated stickers from a third party, a file stored online within your Dropbox account, a virtual Starbucks gift card, or cash (using Apple Pay, PayPal, or the Cash app).
If the person you’re communicating with via the Messages app has an entry in your Contacts app’s database, and that entry contains the person’s photo, it is displayed in the Messages app; otherwise, the person’s initials are displayed by default. Or, if there’s no Contacts entry at all for the person, a generic graphics and their smartphone’s phone number is displayed.
Most iPhone service plans have three components: voice, data, and text messaging. When you sign up with a wireless service, choose a paid text-messaging plan that allows for the sending or receiving of a predetermined number of text messages per month, or pay for an unlimited text messaging plan.
If your plan has no text messaging component, you are charged for every text message you send or receive. However, these days, most cellular service plans, especially family plans, come with unlimited text messaging.
There are different types of text messages. There are text-only (SMS, or Short Message Service) messages, as well as text messages that can contain a photo or video clip (which are sometimes referred to as MMS, or Multimedia Messaging Service). These messages can be sent to the smartphone of one or more people simultaneously via the Messages app.
The Messages app supports audio and video messages when you communicate with other iMessage users. Instead of typing a message, use the app’s audio recording interface to record a short audio message and then send it to one or more recipients.
Alternatively, you can record and send a short video message (from within the Messages app) using one of the cameras that are built into your iPhone or iPad. How to do this is explained shortly.
You can make an adjustment in Settings so that the Messages app stores all of your text messages forever. Alternatively, you can save internal storage space in your mobile device by adjusting the Keep Messages option to 30 Days or 1 Year. Launch Settings, tap Messages and then tap the Keep Message option.
Be sure to use options available within Settings to customize the functionality of the Messages app. To do this, launch Settings, tap the Messages option and then customize one setting at a time from the Messages submenu. Start by turning on the virtual switch that’s associated with the iMessage service, so you can use the app’s enhanced features and functions when communicating with other Apple iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac users.
Using the Messages App with Apple’s iMessage Service
Unlike the text-messaging services available through cellular service providers, Apple’s iMessage service is free of charge, and it allows for an unlimited number of messages to be sent and received. The service also taps into your iPhone’s or iPad’s other functions and allows for the easy sharing of photos, videos, locations, and contacts. It works seamlessly with Notification Center and Siri, as well as a vast collection of third-party apps and content.
iMessage enables you to participate in text-based, real-time conversations. When someone is actively typing a message to you during a conversation on iMessage, a bubble with three periods in it appears to indicate that the other person is currently typing.
Using iMessage from anywhere to send and receive messages via the Internet is always free. When you’re traveling overseas, use this feature exclusively with a Wi-Fi Internet connection to avoid international cellular data roaming charges, which can be costly.
In addition to using iMessage, some people who are active on Facebook use Facebook Messenger as a free way to communicate in real time using text-based instant messages (which can also include photos, video clips, emojis, and other content), audio calls, and video calls. The Messenger app is separate from the official Facebook app, which is used to access the Facebook social media service; you can download the Messenger app from the App Store.
Many other companies and services (including Skype, AIM, Cisco Jabber, WhatsApp, Google, Yahoo!, and Microsoft) also offer instant messaging via the Internet. These services are also free of cost to use, but you can communicate only with people connected to that same service.
Setting Up a Free iMessage Account
Because traditional text messaging is tied to a cell phone, which has a unique phone number, there is no need to have a separate username or account name when using the phone’s text messaging feature via your cellular service provider.
If you know someone’s cell phone number, you can send a text message to that person from your cell phone (and vice versa). However, because iMessage is web-based, before using this service, you must set up a free iMessage account (which is linked to your Apple ID/iCloud account).
The first time you launch the Messages app to use it with the iMessage service, you’re instructed to set up a free account using your existing Apple ID. Or, instead of using your Apple ID, tap the Create New Account option to create an account that’s linked to another existing email address.
Confused about the colored text bubbles? When you send a text message and it is displayed in a blue text bubble, you’re using the iMessage service. However, if you’re using your cellular service provider’s texting service, your text bubbles are displayed in green. Depending on your cellular service plan, charges may apply.
Working with the Messages App
The Messages app on the iPhone has two main screens: a summary of conversations labeled Messages, and an actual conversation screen labeled at the top of the screen using the name of the person or people you’re conversing with. The conversation screen displays a handful of command icons that give you access to the app’s features and functions, most of which are available only if you’re communicating using the iMessage service.
On the iPad, the Messages screen is divided into two main sections (or panes). On the left is a listing of your previous conversations. The right side of the iPad screen is the active conversation window. From here, you can initiate a new conversation or respond to incoming messages, one at a time.
Whether you’re using an iPhone or an iPad, switching between conversations requires just one or two onscreen taps. Plus, thanks to group messaging, it’s possible to communicate with two or more people at the same time and have everyone in the group be able to read and respond to all messages sent by all group members.
Creating and Sending a Text Message
The first time you launch Messages, the New Message screen is visible, the cursor flashes on the To field, and the virtual keyboard is displayed. If you have contact information stored in the Contacts app, as soon as you start typing in the To field, Messages attempts to match existing contacts with the name, cell phone number, Apple ID username, or email address you’re currently typing. When the intended recipient’s name appears, tap it.
To initiate a conversation with someone, tap the New Message icon that appears in the upper-right corner of the Messages screen on the iPhone or next to the Messages heading on the upper-left side of the iPad’s screen.
To quickly search your Contacts database to find one or more recipients for your text messages, tap the blue-and-white plus icon to the right of the To field as you’re composing a new message. A scrollable list of all contacts stored in Contacts displays, along with a Search field you can use to search your contacts database from within the Messages app.
If you’re using an iPhone, to use your cellular service provider’s text messaging service to send a message to another cell phone user, enter the recipient’s cell phone number in the To field of a new message. This applies if the person doesn’t have an entry in your Contacts database that contains her smartphone’s phone number.
If you’re using an iPhone or an iPad to send a message to another iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch user via iMessage, in the To field, enter the recipient’s Apple ID, iPhone’s phone number, or the email address that user has linked with their iMessage account.
In your Contacts database, you can create a separate field for someone’s iMessage username, or when viewing the person’s Contacts listing, simply tap the appropriate contact information based on how you want to send the text message.
After filling in the To field with one or more recipients, if you have the Show Subject Field feature turned on (from within Messages submenu in Settings), tap the optional Subject field to create a subject for your text message, and then tap the blank message field to begin typing your text message. If you’re sending only text in your message, however, type the text, and then tap the Send icon.
As soon as you type something into the message field, the Send icon is displayed. This icon looks like an upward-pointing arrow in a circle. Simply tap this icon to send the message. Once you hit send, there is no “undo.” You can’t take back, unsend, or erase a message.
To access some of the enhanced features built into the Messages app (when using iMessage), press and hold down the Send icon to access the Send with Effect options.
The Send with Effects menu has two tabs at the top: Bubble and Screen. Tap the Bubble option to reveal the Slam, Loud, Gentle, and Invisible Ink features. Any of these options add an attention-getting animation to the text bubble when you’re using iMessage to communicate.
If you choose Invisible Ink, the message is sent using invisible virtual ink. The recipient must swipe their finger over the incoming message to make the message readable on their screen.
After choosing one of these options, tap the Send icon.
To send an animated background screen with a message, first, fill in the message field with text, or use another iMessage feature to create or collect content to send. Then, instead of pressing the Send icon, press and hold the Send icon to reveal the Bubble and Screen tabs.
Tap the Screen tab, and then scroll right to left to toggle between the new animated text bubbles (called the Echo effect), a spotlight, animated balloons, confetti , an animated heart balloon, lasers, fireworks, a shooting star animated sequence, and a “celebration” animation, which will be displayed across the entire background of the message area in the Messages app. Several of these animations are new to iOS
11. After you select a screen animation, tap the Send icon. The recipient will receive your message and see the full-screen animation you selected.
Instead of sending basic text to the intended recipient or recording an audio message, when using Messages to communicate via the iMessage service, tap the App Store (“A”) icon to the left of the message field to reveal the App Drawer, which enables you to attach optional enhanced content to the message, including animated stickers (which are different from Animojis on an iPhone X).
By default, the App Drawer includes the App Store icon, along with the Digital Touch icon, Images icon, and Music icon. Icons for other compatible apps already installed on your iPhone or iPad are also included.
To make the App Drawer temporarily disappear on an iPhone, place your finger on the App Store icon (displayed to the left of the message field) and swipe downward.
The figure shows the App Store being browsed for third-party apps that work with iMessage and the Messages app. To get here, I tapped the icon to the left of the message field and then tapped the App Store icon in the App Drawer.
Tap the camera icon to snap a photo (using one of the iPhone or iPad’s built-cameras) so that you can send that photo to the intended recipient in a message. Alternatively, select a photo or video clip that’s currently stored in the Photos app. (Tap the Photos button, after tapping on the Camera icon, to do this.)
After you select one or more photos, each gets embedded into the outgoing message, and thumbnails for them appear in the Message field. Tap the Send icon to send the photos or video clips to the recipient(s).
When you tap the Camera icon, a mini version of the Camera app’s viewfinder screen is displayed. Use the camera selection icon to switch between the front- and rear-facing cameras, and then snap a photo by tapping the Shutter button. That photo is then added to the message field, and it will be sent when you tap the Send icon.
After tapping the App Store “A” icon, tap the heart-shaped Digital Touch icon to draw something special on the screen (to be sent as an animated graphic within the text message).
From the Digital Touch window, make the window bigger by tapping the up-arrow icon at the top of the window. Tap on the Info
(i) icon to view a Digital Touch menu that describes the finger gestures that you can use to overlay an animated sketch, tap, fireball, kiss, heartbeat, or heartbreak graphic.
As soon as you create one of these Digital Touch animations, it is automatically sent to the recipient, without you having to tap the Send icon.
Tap the Video icon to capture a short video sequence or still image, and then annotate or draw on it. This can be done in real time or after shooting.
While engaged in a conversation via the Message app, tap the Info icon at the top-right corner of the conversation screen. The Details screen appears. From the Details screen, you can initiate a FaceTime, voice, or text message conversation with that person.
You can also use your iPhone or iPad’s Location Services (GPS) capabilities to send your exact location to that person. The recipient receives a map that displays your exact location. They can then tap this Maps icon and then tap the Directions to Here option to obtain turn-by-turn navigation directions from their current location to yours.
If you want the recipient to know when you have read their messages after they’ve been received by you, turn on the virtual switch associated with the Send Read Receipts option. This option is set separately for each person you communicate with via Messages.
Scroll down in the Details screen to see a collection of all images or attachments that have been shared during the entire conversation with that person (that’s taken place using Messages).
Tap the Images tab to view the images/photos, or tap the Attachments tab to view other content that’s been shared.
