Re: iPhone no longer charges since IOS 7 Upgrade
Ordered a certified 10 ft cable from Monoprice, but decided to continue using the non-certified one until the new one arrived. Might not have been a good decision. Sunday morning I tried to wake my phone. Nothing. Zilch. It was dead. After my initial panic wore off because the usual sleep/home combination did not jolt it back to life, I googled the issue and there was a suggestion on the Apple support website to toggle the mute button several times before doing the sleep/home combination and holding the combination for 30 seconds if need be. That worked. However, I am wondering if this non-certified cable was the culprit. Could there have been something in the cable that caused the phone to almost "brick"? Needless to say, I discarded the cable and will wait out the new one. But curious what caused the problem in the first place. This did happen once before but can't recall if the cable in question was attached. And then the simple sleep/home combination worked.
