    So at a family Christmas party, my phone had been very low on battery so I grabbed my cousins charger and plugged it in. After opening presents I went back and texted a friend and as i typed my phone turned off. It wouldnt turn back on and when I plugged it back in it showed the battery symbol on very low. So I just thought my battery died but I let it charge for the past hour and it still wont turn back on. What can I do to turn it back on??? Need help quick.

    Is it a genuine Apple charger?

    If the charger doesn't work try plugging it into a USB port.

    Once dead, only the authentic Apple cord plugged into the wall socket will work to revive.

    Try charging it with your mac turned on and itunes open, i use this method and when it dies it takes 15 minutes to turn back on.

    Plug it into the wall. Hold Power + Home for at least 30 seconds and tell me if you see the Apple logo...
