Why is iPhone 5 showing charging but battery percentage is not increasing?

      by Phil Borges // in Phones

It's a question that most people have wondered at one point or another: why is iPhone 5 showing charging but battery percentage is not increasing? Well, there are possible reasons for this. It could be a software glitch or could be a sign of a hardware issue, but it might also mean that something more serious is going on with your phone's battery. If you've had similar experiences and want to know what's going on, read this blog post, and I'll try to cover some of them and offer solutions that might work for you. 

Why is iPhone 5 showing charging but battery percentage is not increasing?

The iPhone 5 is a fantastic device. It has a number of features that would make it better than the other smartphones on the market, and thousands of people can't believe how much they like it. As great as this device is, though, there are problems that come up with every type of phone or gadget that has been manufactured in large numbers; iPhone issues happen all too often.

One random problem that many users have run into with the iPhone is that it will show the device as charging while plugged in, but when they check on their battery percentage, there has been no charge. This might be a serious issue because if your phone isn't actually charged, you won't have any power to use for calls or other tasks; you need to get rid of this issue as soon as possible.

To further investigate the problem, you should look out for the following possible causes:

If the battery has been dislodged or damaged, then it could mean that there is no power being sent to your iPhone. This can happen if you drop your device and end up damaging some of the internal components; once this happens then, you'll need to get a new battery for your phone in order for it to work properly.

There could be a missing component from your phone, like the FL 11 found on the logic board. The FL 11 is a little component that frequently gets misplaced (unnoticed most of the time) when individuals connect or disconnect their battery. The FL 11 is a battery management I/O inductor. If your phone missed this one, the system wouldn't be able to read the battery's status; therefore, it will power off as a safety precaution. You can send your phone to an authorized service center to have this one fixed.

In some rare cases, a defective U2 IC chip might also cause the problem. This chip is responsible for regulating power to the battery, and it can malfunction if there has been some damage done to the phone, like water exposure or dropping your device multiple times on a hard surface. Send your phone to an Apple technician so he could also check this issue.

If you are replacing either the FL 11 or U2 IC chip or both, be sure that this is done only by professionals. These two tiny components are very delicate, and you could end up damaging your phone even more if the replacement isn't done properly.

Is the charging issue due to a software bug?

Battery drain can be caused by a variety of issues, one of which is software bugs. Software anomalies slow down the smooth functioning of your phone. When a bug is discovered in the software, the battery percentage changes. One possible solution for this is to update your iPhone to the latest version of iOS. Updating the iOS is easy, and it's free. You will need to connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network and then tap on the settings app. You may also follow the instructions from the manual that comes with your device for a complete tutorial on how to update your device correctly.

If this doesn't work, then you might want to consider contacting Apple directly and see if they have any suggestions on what else could be causing the problem.

How to avoid charging issues with iPhone 5?

The best way you can do to avoid charging issues with your iPhone 5 is to take care of its battery and make sure it's always in good shape and ready to work. You can do this by, for example:

- Using the original Apple charger. If you use a different one, there might be some danger of damaging your battery.

- You may want to avoid using your phone while it is charging as this may also damage the battery.

- Make sure your phone is not overheated, as this might lead to a decrease in charging capacity.

- If you are sending your phone to a shop for a check-up or repair, make sure you choose a reliable one.

In conclusion, we all know that batteries can get worn out or damaged over time. Still, in most cases, you can be able to resolve this issue with a simple software update or by replacing some defective components. To make sure that your iPhone will perform the way it should, it is important to keep the device in good condition, including its battery. This means taking care of it and using only original Apple parts instead of cheap third-party components that may not work properly.
