Smartphones have become one (if not the largest) of the most used devices in recent years, whether for work or study to create or edit videos or photos, to take great photos or just for moments of entertainment. These devices have changed over the years, renewing their designs and types of charging, with removable batteries or batteries that can no longer be removed simply by opening the back cover, and with this device (the set of physical or physical elements that make up a PC or computer) essential part.

Either by touch or by where they are located in each cavity, yes or yes, there will be dust and this brings us complications, covering most of the time the entrances that are essential for the correct functioning of the smartphone.

In the case of these charging inputs, Android devices and iPhones (USB-C and Lightning) are different, however, the trick we are going to show you will work for both. This is with the aim that before you think it is the download center or that you need to restore the software, first try this trick and if it is just dust then you can save money.

Before you start showing this “trick” it is necessary to turn off your device so that you can avoid any damage and if your smartphone is one of those that can remove the battery, remove it. Also, if you’re using blowing to remove all that dirt, stop doing that, because saliva particles can stay inside, and take some time to check said dirt with some light toward the charging port.

how Properly clean the charging port of the device (Android / iPhone)

what do you need:

  • Flashlight / Flash (can be from another mobile).
  • Wooden or plastic toothpicks (toothpick).
  • Cotton (optional).
  • isopropyl alcohol.
  • In addition, a lot of patience.

What you will do very carefully:

  1. Turn off your phone.
  2. Take a toothpick and gently remove as much dirt as you can, without using too much force.
  3. Take a little bit of cotton and let it get a little wet with isopropyl alcohol.
  4. Wrap the tip of the toothpick.
  5. Hold the smartphone firmly with the back facing up, and start cleaning the inside of the charging port with cotton and a toothpick.
  6. Take the details on the back wall of the outlet, where dirt can be stored with the movements made.
  7. Keep chopping and pulling until the dirt starts to loosen.
  8. You may also need to carefully scratch both sides of the port itself. Dust and dirt can get stuck behind the screws.
  9. If you wish, you can repeat as many times as you think necessary, always making sure with the flashlight / flash of another mobile phone that it is already clean enough.
  10. Finish by plugging a USB or Lightning cable (depending on your device) into the charging port and seeing if the cable no longer wobbles and inserts itself firmly.
  11. Plug it in and check that it starts charging without issue. If the last two steps are not met, it will be necessary for you to go with a trusted technician.

Consider the periodic cleaning of the hardware of your device and more about this type of cavities always with the greatest possible detail and attention, so as not to damage your device.
