    Hi. I have an iPhone 6S that I bought off a chap on eBay. Until now it's worked phenomenally. Suddenly the headphone jack isn't working well as well as the Lightning jack.

    Is there any way of cleaning the connections?

    Thanks for any input

    Use a toothpick and wiggle the dirt out of the jack.

    Try plugging and unplugging at least 10 times.

    So if you play music via iPhone speaker and then connect headphones, you're not getting any sound via the headphones and the iPhone speaker stops playing once the headphones are connected? You don't have anything connected via bluetooth do you?

    And the lightning port is also not working, so you can't charge the iPhone? Tried another cable?

    No. Bluetooth actually works it's the physical connections that don't. I have the phone in a battery case and that works great regarding charging. The headphone jack doesn't work anymore.

    Does that actually work?

    In many cases it does. It helps remove any debris that may cause issues with connectivity. But I was thinking the old jack, like I have on my 6s Plus.
