Suddenly last week my iphone 4S would not charge on my car charger or any wall charger. Well..actually if you plugged it in, the charging icon would not come on but it would charge to about 20% if you left it plugged in all night. This was on several different chargers. My other iphones charged on the same chargers just fine. I discovered by accident that it charges normally when plugged into the computer. I have tried with different charger cords and it is the same with all of them. My other phones all work fine so it is not the chargers. I have seen other posts that mention something about an update. Any help would be appreciated.
There isn't a software update that affects the charging...take it to an Apple store genius bar and have the techs test it to see if there is a problem with the battery or internal charging circuit.
My problem is very similar. My 4s will charge on my computer but not on my wall charger or car charger. I have tried different charges and cables and the phone does not light up and say it is charging unless I plug it into my computer.
My iPad will still charge from my wall units. I feel sorry for people having this problem, because others think it is the cord or charger. Any help would be appreciated. Hope someone figures it out.
