    Default My iPhone 5 stops charging along the way

    Hi all. Just recently i noticed that whenever i plug in my phone to the wall outlet it will start charging then after few minutes it will stop charging and whenever that happens i will always have to unplug and replug before it can continue charging. It stops like 4 times in a row while charging before i can get the battery to fill up. Any ideas?

    Have you tried a different charger or power outlet to see if that fixes the problem?

    Try a different charger and cable. If that won't help, restore your iPhone.

    If these didn't work then get it checked at Apple.

    Eliminate the obvious first try a different outlet

    Then try a different cord they go bad quicker than the phone will

    If those don't work make sure you don't have any lint built up in the charging port and if that's OK then follow above advice and backup your device and restore thru iTunes

    Lastly all else fails a trip to the Apple Store is needed

    Could it be the Jailbreak that caused this??

    You can bring the cord into an Apple Store and they will replace it for free

    Can't say think back what's the last thing you did before this problem started

    Thank you all. I have tried a different outlet already. The phone is exactly a month old today,that makes me wonder what could possibly go wrong with the cord

    Check the port all it takes is a little lint to disrupt the charging process

    Okay seems like iv figured it out. Its strange though but here is what happened: I installed this tweak called 'Classic Switcher' for some days now,even if i quit all apps via this tweak they will quit,literally,but not actually. So i disabled the tweak and saw that all the apps that iv opened since the day i installed it are still running(about 83 of them),i quit all of them and voila! Problem solved!

    Question: So does leaving lots of apps running causes issues to phone? Coz apart from the charging thingy my screen randomly kept flashing,as if iv taken a screenshot...
