Question:this accessory may not be supported iOs 7.0.3


Since updating to iOS 7.0.3 Ive getting a prompt this accessory may not be supported after a few minutes charging.

Charging then stops and Ive unplug the cable and reconnect, then hopefully get another 5 minutes before the message appears again. The phone is pretty much unusable now as I cant get it charged. Only using genuine apple cables (have tried 4 seperate cables) and have tried charging both via the wall and the laptop, but the result is the same.

 

Need a solution for this ASAP.

Clean iPhone charging port with toothbrush and small amount of Isopropyl Alcohol.

Answer:this accessory may not be supported iOs 7.0.3


No offence but its obviously nothing to do with the charging port. This a software issue since the roll out of iOS 7.0.3 I see today many more people complaining on forums about the same issue. Hopefully actually do something about it and roll out a fix ASAP.

Think I may have stumbled on to the answer after reading several of the posts here. Its not the cables. Its got to do with the power being output through the cable. I bought a cheap $10 Rayovac AAA powered USB charger to use as an emergency backup charger. There are 3 green LEDs on the charger to let you know the power output. When AAAs are fresh (3 LEDs lit) it charges without a problem. When it gets down to just one LED lit on the charger I start getting the this accessory may not be supported message. The weaker the AAAs becomes the more frequently the message pops up. Put fresh batteries in and the message doesnt come up anymore. So its not the cable or software, its the power being output by whatever the cable is plugged into. iOS7 must have a minimum power level it needs to support charging. Hope this helps.

Actually, it is either the port or the charger.  It is not iOS 7.0.3.  A simple search would reveal this issue occurring on multiple iDevices across multiple iOS versions.

 

Clean the port.

Use a supported cable.
