How Do You Know If Your iPhone is Charging?
First thing first, you should make sure that your iPhone really has a charging problem. As we all know, if the iPhone is charging, there is a lightning bolt beside the battery icon in the status bar, or a battery icon on the lock screen.
In this way, you can see if your iPhone is charging or not. In some cases, the iPhone is completely not charging.

How to Fix iPhone Won't Charge or Charging Slowly Problem?
After you are sure that your iPhone is really not charging or has a charging problem, you can fix it by taking a good look at the four components that are involved: USB cable, charger, charging port and iPhone itself. If the hardware goes well, the charging problems might be attributed to your iPhone system issues.
1. Check if USB cable is working or not
This is pretty obvious. Whether your are using lightning cables or 30-pin dock connector cable, check the cable and see if it is frayed or worn. If the cable looks fine, use other cable and and see if your iPhone is charging. If it is, then you need to change a new cable.
In fact, USB cable is covered under the iPhone' s warranty. Therefore, for those users whose iPhones are still under warranty, you can go to local Apple Store with the old cable and get a free new lightning cable.
However, in most cases, the lightning cable that comes with your iPhone is very durable and gets damaged after the warranty is expired. Some users may replace the lightning cable with 3rd-party cable that costs less than lightning cable. It is okay to use non-Apple cable but always pick Apple certified cables, which are marked with "Made for" label like this:
Some cheap and low-quality cables that are not authorized by Apple might be unable to use to charge your iPhone. The error "This cable is not certified and may not work reliably"may appear and prevent the cable from charging iPhone.
2. Try Another Charger
Charger can also be the reason why your iPhone won't charge. There are many power sources that you can connect your iPhone to: wall charger, computer USB port, car charger, portable charger. Try to charge your iPhone with other sources. For example, if you were using a wall charger, connect your iPhone to a laptop USB port. If it works, then you would know that the charger is broken.
3. iPhone Charging Port Not Working
But what if your phone won't charge and it's not the charger? For this case, you should check the iPhone charging port. Sometimes, iPhone charging port can be clogged with dust, debris, lint, or some other small object, which also prevent iPhone from charging. Now, let's see how to clean iPhone charging port below:
Take a close look at the charging port with a flashlight and if you find any obstruction, clean it with a clean toothbrush or blow it out with air duster. Then you can plug your iPhone into a charger and see if it is charging now.
4. Take your charging iPhone to a cooler place
You should notice that the software of your phone would limit charging above 80 percent when your iPhone gets too warm. The battery itself will give out the heat. In addition, the high air temperature can even make thing worse. So you can move your iPhone to another location that is cooler to give it a shot and then check if the problem is solved or not.
5. System Issues Troubleshooting
Charging involves not only the accessories but also iPhone itself. It is the software that recognizes the power source and starts the charging process. So if there is something going wrong with the software, your iPhone won't charge properly. To solve the problem, you can try to reboot or restore iPhone.
Firstly, you can follow the below instruction to restart your iPhone.
For iPhone X/8 Plus/8, you need to press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Then press and quickly release the Volume Down button. After that, just keep pressing the Side button until you see the Apple logo.
For iPhone 7/7 Plus, you need to keep holding both the Side and Volume Down buttons until you see the Apple logo.
For iPhone 6s and earlier, you need to press and hold both the Home and Top (or Side) buttons until you see the Apple logo.
Performing a reboot would be good idea to fix some software problems. After the reboot, charge your iPhone again to see the problem is solved or not. If it doesn’t, you are recommended to try Passvers iOS System Recovery program. It has been tested to be a helpful tool to fix the issues such as “my iPhone won’t charge but it says it’s charging”, “iPhone charging slowly” or even “iPhone charging slowly after update”.

No Charging Orange Triangle with a locking
where do I get apple store in MUMBAI INDIA
Ask your Mumbai INDIA to call me n +917738389969 It is a samsung responsibility to raise it to zero charging level. Otherwise working fine but cannot chage,Heat was not much as anticipated by your people.I need help immediately.
My Phone is dead and Samsung needs to make it alive
Samsung has blocked charging forcefully due to fear of accident but Nothing like that was actually heat was just small raising doubt in your mind..A round with a lock triangle orenge colour and key lock at the centre of screen
I have tried everything kept it near an A/C after getting up early morning. Phone is as cold as ever, but Triangle comes in to stop charging. And thereby nothing. Triangle will go when you stop charging. All other things mentioned is worthless. I need a replacement. There is no storage and getting it repaired means more damage and then more blame on the user.
I have enquired from the repair shop, and they have categorically mentioned of no way out.
Trying out by unskilled persons like us is damaging further Ask your counterpart to bring a new one and take away this one because of your own problem. I had to buy a plain simple Nokia phone working fantastically under much more warmth. Your people will be shocked to see this. You do not have the right person here They want to put the blame on the customer somehow. Which is so absurd? Please act FAST. Redressal is absolutely slow and meaningless.
I am now certain that Nothing is possible for the phone to revive Samsung has taken away 100,s of my files/Photos, and the phone is now very old trying & trying ultimately compelled me to buy another phone from Nokia simple but Better for my daily life.
I have lost the high cost and am away from all social life too. Days are passing by but no quick action from your side. Please note Delays may complicate the matter. I may have to go to court for no fault of mine
Please provide me with a new phone with free services and a guarantee that such things will never happen again.
Informing me my phone is getting heated up when there is no heat at all. And stopping it forever is all absurd and dangerous for people who buy very high-priced phones.
Even today when the phone is charged Triangle interferes to stop charging.
Pl take action and solve my problems the sooner the better.
Okay, I am here. Tell me.
The problem with the phone looks to me, is a combination of the heat locking arrangement and its controls, and another side is stopping the phone from the Samsung side.
Someone deliberately tried to use the trick to close down my current work at that time and it was a blunder. The provider of the heat locking arrangement has to remove their part from the phone and thereafter Samsung perhaps needs to work on it This is my own thinking which could be kiddish and has nothing to do with the great Technology of Samsung.
