A symptom that your charge port is not working properly is when your iPhone isn’t charging properly anymore. Firstly, check whether there is any fuzz or dirt in the charge port pins. You can also check whether your iPhone has gotten wet in the charge port or if any of the pins may be broken. Another symptom is when iTunes doesn’t recognize your iPhone due to the charge port/lightning dock is not working. Lastly, it may not be your lightning dock malfunctioning, but your lightning cable, so you may want to test another cable to be sure.
The iPhone 4 is equipped with a charge port, but with the newer iPhones 5 thru 6s Plus, they have a lightning dock. They are virtually the same except that Apple changed the connector pin configuration with the iPhone 5 and they renamed it lightning. Lightning dock was first introduced with the iPhone 5 in 2012 and replaced the 30-pin dock connector used in the iPhone 4 with an 8-pin connector that is 80% smaller than the 30 pin version, and can be inserted in either orientation in the iPhone 5. There are adaptors available allowing the user to use with other accessories. The lightning connector is used not only for the charge port but for syncing data and content, and audio and video output. This Lightning Dock is a proprietary connector (bus and power) created by Apple. This protects Apple from third-party manufacturers that may try to produce accessories without Apple’s consent and approval.
It has been reported that many if not most knockoff Lightning cables that come bundled in a box, come to a point in time that they just stop working for no reason at all. The MFi-certified Lightning cables by Apple’s licensing program where other manufacturers pay a fee for the certification to make and sell Apple accessory products such as the Lightning cables. These tend to be more expensive but tend to last longer. Apple’s Lightning cables are the primo in the market and have the best ratings of all. Having a good Lightning cable for your iPhone will take any cable issues guesswork out of the Lightning dock equation.
If your iPhone 5 thru 6s Plus took a hard fall and broke the Lightning connector or headphone jack it will need replacing with a Lightning connector assembly, which contains both the headphone jack and Lightning charging dock.
