Not Syncing No Lightning Bolt

When I connect my iPhone to my macbook iTunes doesnt launch and the iphone doesnt show the charging lightning bolt, although the phone does still charge. Ive tried in DFU mode and with another (good) sync cable but nothing seems to work. All other iPhone functions are working normally.

Lightning to 30 pin adapter with a lightning end is the same size as the cable that comes with the phone

Has anyone found a lightning to 30 pin adapter where the lightning end is the same size as the cable that comes with the phone?  I know there have been some non-apple versions, but I cant tell if they are the same as the Apple versions where the lightnin end is slightly bigger than the cabe that ships with the phone.  Most iPhone bumpers only accomodate the original charing cabe ad the adapter cable is just slighter bigger and doesnt fit.  Also, im not referring to the square, cable-less adapter.

iPhone Lightning charger too much power iPhone Lightning charger too much power

I have an iPhone 5S and when I plug the charger into my macbook pro it tells me that it uses too much power and then it freezes all USB ports. I really dont want to go buy a new charger or go to the apple store. It doesnt charge when I plug it into the wall either. I have already restarted iTunes and the computer many times. I tried to run the diagnostics on my computer and it wouldnt do it. I pressed D when I turned the computer on and nothing seemed to happen. I also tried pressing N when the computer turned on too. If someone can help we with both of these problems it would be greatly appreacated. Thanks!!! ()

Iphone 5 USB to Lightning Cable Stuck in Port

Hi All,

 

Like alot other people when i bought my new iphone 5 the i had the problem when the cable got stuck in the usb port, all the replacement cables being sent out were all the same, does anyone know if the new cables being stocked by apple have been sorted now or are they still the old cables that are getting stuck.

 

I need to buy a new one but dont want one of the old cables again.

 

Thanks

iPhone iPad Lightning connector with dual USB

Dear Everyone,

 

I have been thinking of using my iPhone in a certain way: namely, wanting to connect it to a charger while being able to import images through USB. Now the problem is that the lightning-to-USB camera adapter has only one USB port, thus allowing me only to either import images or the charge the iPhone at one time.

Simultaneously charging and importing would require a lightning-to-dual USB cable. However, I have not been able to find such a cable.

 

So the obvious question: does it exist? If yes, where can I buy it? If no, will it ever exist/are there other ways to achieve what I want?

What's with the new lightning cords

Ive only had my iPhone for a year and I have already gone through 7 chargers. I know many other people that have had the same problem.. Im so tired of buying new chargers that continue to fail me.

My lightning is very rare

My original iphone lightning conector has a ball

on the end of the cable

I need iPhone4 to lightning adapter

I have a Romo 5L tracked robot that wants an iPhone 5 or 5S plugged on top of it, which works great.

But I want to use my old iPhones to run it instead.

So I need an adapter with the reverse sex connectors to what Apple offers.

 

I know, Romotive also sells a version (3A) with the 30-pin connector; but Ive tried two of those, and they are too feeble to be interesting. They dont even have enough power to run their own training exercises, which require 120 degree turns. They have a tiny fraction of the capabilities of the newer iPhone 5 version (Romo 3L), even though they look the same and youd think its only the connector thats different.

 

Or, is there documentation on the pinout for the two connectors, and whats inside Apples adaptor? I.e., is it just wiring and connector differences, or is there an active chip inside Apples adaptor? If its just wiring, I could make something myself to do the job.

 

I have done the reverse of what I want, namely used Apples adapter on the 30-pin robot to run it from my iPhone 5S, and that works fine. But it doesnt solve my problem, which requires getting rid of the feeble 30-pin Romos.

Lightning Cable Corrosion

I was trying to sync/charge my iPhone 5 so the USB end went in my MacBook Pro, and the Lightning end went in the iPhone only to get the error that iTunes couldnt connect to the phone. Then the phone would beep everytime I moved it like the cord was loose or something. I pulled out the lightning plug and looked at it only to find corrosion on the gold connectors.

Does anyone know, does apple actually use gold in these? (gold isnt supposed to corrode, especially after 6 days)

Lightning-to-VGA firmware error

I had one of our iPads connected to a projector (via the Apple Lightning-to-VGA adapter) for a presentation and 5 minutes in, the mirrored video feed started to freeze up (audio was fine) and eventually froze and crapped out. As this happened, an alert dialoge appeared on the iPads saying something along the lines of Adapter firmware is updating. The adapter will be unavailble until the update is complete. Ive never seen this (nor heard of it) before and wondering if anyone else has seen this happen? Thing is, there was no progress indicator and the adapter just stopped working (and hasnt worked since). Tried various cable swaps, different devices, etc. and all work fine with our other Lightning-to-VGA adapters, so its defintely the adapter itself.

 

Like I said, Ive never seen this before and havent really been able to find much info at all on the firmware for these adapters, let alone how to fix (what I can only assume is) a faulty firmware upgrade on them?

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Kristin.

Lightning to micro usb adapter not included

A long time ago the mobile industry agreed on a EU standard (usb) to charge mobile phones. I remember when Apple came out with an adapter that would allow a micro usb cable to charge an iPhone. I recently got an iPhone 5S, but did not find any adapter included. So I suppose no one in the EU gets this adapter. Is Apples solution or judicial bypass to the standard to only sell the adapter?

Apple please include a free lightning Adapter

I firmly believe everyone should get one free with their paid iPhone order. I personally do not want to purchase 4 adapters to make everything work with my old connections. Who feels the same way?

Why do lightning connectors break so easily Is Apple ignorant

Im on my 4th connector in 12 months. What is Apple doing about their product quality? Zilch?

any update on when lightning 30 pin adapters will support video

iOS 7 rejecting my genuine Apple lightning cable as not certified

Hi,

Yesterday I bought a new iphone 5 A1429 model from eBay UK. it was on ios 6.1.4. I charged it and was ok. After upgrading to ios 7.0.3, first time when I plugged it for charging it shows This cable or accessorry is not certified...

 

I am quite astonished since I am using the original cable which came in box. Moreover its charging but I cant access my iPhone since its blocking the touch screen, nothing works, I cant unlock the phone.

 

What should I do?

i am having iphone 3g with 3.13 .if i charge my iphone full and then switch off and on after few hours the battery is getting discharge .and my phone is giving 4hours of battery backup i have changed the battery also

Lightning cable - worst cable

Im very disappointed with this lightning cable. I bought 1 cables at 20 bucks cause I use this phone a lot ( Iphone 5) it is my first iphone ever, so I bought two extra cables on best buy. Guess what, the three of them broke, one after the other. I went to the apple store , they made set an appointed and come back on a different day just to tell that they cant do anything about cause my phone is now out of warranty. they offered me to replace them buy I had to pay 17 dollars for each which is pretty much the same price as a new one!

Im so dissapointed and probably this will be my first and last iphone

iphone 4S Battery problem - it's not iOS5 'cuz my 3GS's battery is fine

Hi,

 

Ive been reading about Apple saying that the battery problem is dued to the iOS5. However, Im running in iphone 3GS on the same iOS5 and the battery life is ok. On idle mode, it is lasting about 3 days now and still some juice left to go. However, with my new iPhone 4S, the battery is draining like crazy even though I have location services turned off etc but the battery is still not as advertised and is draining like crazy even when idle.

 

I want to be clarify that it is NOT the iOS5. It might be some hardware problem with the new iphone 4S, which is very disappointing to me...please fix ASAP! Thank you!

How would i go about conserving battery power Because my iPhone battery constantley needs charged because its draining quite fast and idk why

I really need help with trying to figure out why my iPhone 4 or iPhone 4Ss battery keeps draining so fast even when Im not using it the phones battery drains. I might as well say that I have to use the phone all the time just on the charger because it drains so fast. And I just got this iPhone this Christmas so its not that old.

 

 

 

Please let me know cause idk how much longer i can take this lol.

 

Thanks, Alan

My iPhone 3G's battery puffed up Will the phone work with a new battery

My iPhone 3Gs battery recently puffed up, and it maybe damaged the phone other parts too. I opened the iPhone almost imidiately when I saw it. The battery ripped out 3 screws from their places, and it cambered the motherboard a little bit. I have removed the battery and replaced the motherboard and the screen too. Then I plugged it into the computer. It showed me the Apple logo for 1-2 minutes, and then it lowered the brightness but didnt bring up the Lockscreen. The iTunes didnt recognized it, but my PC did when I entered to DFU mode with it. (But it didnt bring up the iTunes) I wonder, this phone will work if I put a new battery into it?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

battery does not charge displays battery plug icon on top right

iphone 4 is about 3-4 months old
Symptoms:
phone started to have issues a few weeks ago
it does not seem to want to charge
when plugged in, it displays the plugged in icon but doesnt seem to charge
have tried various charges (usb AND wall) and it wont always charge
the same charger that works, also might not work
few weeks ago, phone was down (out of battery for about 4 days) and then all of a sudden decided to charge
yesterday, it was plugged in overnight and it did not charge at all. but it had about 15% power left, so when i looked at the icon on the top right, it had the battery with a plug icon (i think that means its indicating the battery is fully charged) so it wouldnt charge at all
then i tried 3 different wall charges and one of them changed it to battery with a lightning bolt. then it started charging
so it seems like somehow the battery thinks its charged and does not charge even though its not really charged.
Could this indicate a problem with the battery, or the phone?
