How to clean your iPhone’s charging port

If possible, you should try cleaning your charging port without touching it or sticking anything inside. The port includes delicate contact points – tiny strips of metal – that the charging cable must dock into. If the contact points are damaged, then the charger won’t work at all, no matter how much you try to clean it. If the anchors on either side get damaged, they won’t be able to lock in your cable, which is another serious problem. The only solution after damage is to have the charging port replaced by a professional, which has costs in both time and money. So the first rule is to be extremely careful.

This also means that one of the best options for unclogging the iPhone port is to use a can of compressed air. Hold it fairly close to the port, but not too close and certainly don’t try to stick the nozzle inside (remember all those delicate parts). Spray the air in very short, light bursts. Resist the urge to blow into the port yourself: Wet, hot air from the human mouth won’t do the port and its contact points any favors. After you’ve blown a careful blast of air at the port, wait a few seconds, then try attaching your charging cable again and see if it is detected. If the air has dislodged dust or debris stuck in the port, then it should be working just fine again.

Option 2: Take your chances with a toothpick

Sometimes, a can of air isn’t going to cut it. There may be grime built up in the port that air can’t take care of, or a particle lodged too firmly inside to be easily removed. In these cases, you can try digging around a little inside the charging port yourself. Again, all the dangers we just discussed still apply, so it’s important to be as careful as possible. A toothpick is actually a suitable tool to use for this, since the wood is softer and more flexible than plastic or wire.

With a toothpick in hand and your iPhone turned off, find a spot with great lighting, such as under a desk lamp. Lightly insert the tip of the toothpick into the charging port, and gently waggle it around. Avoid putting any pressure on the toothpick at first; if no particles or grime are coming free, you can exert the lightest of pressures for a soft scrape. Any more than that, and you risk damaging the port permanently.

Try to stay away from the sides of the port as you work to avoid damaging the anchors. If you notice that your toothpick is picking up some grime or knocking out debris, stop and switch to canned air if possible. Test your charging cable again to make sure it is working and that nothing is amiss.

Option 3: Just take it into a professional

If you’re willing to make a trip and have a nearby Apple Store you can visit, this is the best option. An experienced employee will know how to clean out the charging port safely, and will have professional tools that are best able to do the job (like cute tiny vacuum cleaners). Best of all, an Apple Store should clean your port and get your iPhone working again for free, so there’s no worrying about expenses.

If you don’t have a nearby Apple Store, you can take your phone into any similar type of repair shop or business that specializes in mobile devices or equipment, and they will be able to help you out. Of course, there’s no guarantee someone else will do it for free, but when dealing with delicate components, your iPhone is typically better off in the hands of a professional even if you have to pay a fee for it.

Feeling annoyed at all these charger port issues? You could always switch to wireless charging, although a cable connection is usually necessary for any big data transfers.

How To Make Money Online In Africa

Published

on

This was a post we took from the website templeobike.com. A young inspirational writer, businessman and counselor who has constantly changed lives through his mind-set re-programming mantra. We hope this helps someone out there today looking to begin a journey into the online money-making world.
I have been inundated with this question of “How Do You Make Money Online”. So i decided to create a mini blog post around this for someone out there who might need this or might need it for their ward or sibling who just left school.
One thing we cannot overestimate is the fact that the internet is here to stay. Not only is it here to stay, it’s providing sustenance to millions all over the world. I’m a beneficiary of one of these opportunities. Are you fully employed, a stay-at-home mom, a job-seeker or anything else? My advice for you is simply this. You too can do this.

When i counsel my clients, one thing i always say is this.

“If money is what you currently lack, then you can still become a billionaire tomorrow with the right application of information BUT if personal drive is what you lack, you could loose everything you have today”. Let me teach you how to crack this online world.

Become a Youtube Vlogger

With the YouTube app on your hands, literally everything is possible. I’ve seen people who accidentally stumbled on a $100,000 per month opportunity by making funny faces on a day where they were testing out the livestream feature on the YouTube app. The first step is simply to figure out is how to get at least 1,000 people to like your channel and also get 4,000 viewing hours on your content. Your second step is then setting up a google adsense account which will enable you get paid for every content view recorded on your youtube channel. This isn’t as difficult as it seem’s. Ask a digital marketer to show you how. Click here if you need one. You can also decide to create a news blog or a news site where you can create content and then sell advert space when your traffic starts coming in.

Write a Book and Sell It Online

Have you heard of Okadabooks, these guys have de-mystified the publishing process. They are an online website that pays you for your books and shorts. They literally pay you for anything that is eye-ball worthy.

Register As an Agent & List On Property Websites

You drive by skeletal structures daily and i’m sure you might have wondered “They say there’s no money, yet these people are building houses?”. That’s the first step. If you have wondered about this, no issues, you are on the right path. Simply take a picture of this house, seek out who the property owner/facility/project manager is and ask them what manner of use they intend to put the house to. (Be ready to meet with little resistance at the onset). However, once the property is ready and you know the manner of use the owner intends to put it to, simply take a second picture and list a before and after image on property websites such as Tolet, Jumia House & Private Property. After this, register as an agent and you could be closing that first major deal. You could get trained on this to get more skills on TrainAfrika where online classes are held by professional housing agents.

Get Creative and Sell Online

If you know how to design anything at all, Trust me someone out there would appreciate your art-form. It’s time to create and sell. Platforms like Printivo are giving you an opportunity that could have you earning revenue by uploading and selling designs to customers. You earn 15% of the value of the design sold to Printivo.

Leverage on the Reach of E-commerce Websites

Selling items, products and services online is another great way to make legitimate money online. Upload your product on any of the following sites as a Merchant and have people buy from you. Brand Market, Jumia, Konga. Across these websites, your product reach increases and you stand a higher chance of seeing people interested in buying from you.

Put Your Social Media Handles to Better Use

You are always on there anyways so you might just need to make money while you are at it. If you have a decent to sizeable following on SM, a blog, website etc, it’s an opportunity to start promoting products for companies who are willing to pay you for selling their services or product. You can even apply to affiliate programs of some notable brands in Nigeria such as Konga and Jumia Affiliate Program OR simply use your blog Or news site to show adverts for BrandEnvoy Africa. This site has used them for over 2 years and earn at least USD300 monthly from letting them show ads on our homepage.

Many people are caught up trying to make money from their products but not realizing they could be making a whole lot more teaching people who want to learn how to get to where they are. Teach others what you know and you could be on a whole new revenue generation path. Engage in one-on-one tutoring sessions or host webinars to teach people. Websites like TrainAfrika allows users to monetize their knowledge by creating online learning materials for other in need of a specific knowledge.

Spare time for Online Questionnaires/Surveys?

This might not be a great way to make money online for many people but helping research companies fill forms and answer questionnaires has been and is still generating revenue for people online. It’s only a few minutes work but it puts some little and quick change in your pocket. Do not overlook this. It works. I have used this means as a buffer when things were tough for me while starting out on my entrepreneurial journey.
