    I have been experiencing issues with my charging port on my 6 plus for the past couple of months now. Every lighting cable (apple certified) that I use has the message pop up that states
    "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPhone".
    This started to happen a couple of months ago, but It never dawned on me that the issue could be with the phone itself. I always blamed it on the cables.
    In result, I have purchased 4 new lighting cables from the Apple Store and all four cables give me this message.
    Also, I have noticed that the Lightning cable is easily removed from the phone while charging. Sometimes, it actually falls off if the phone is charging and placed on a flat surface.
    Today, I ran a test comparing both my phone and my wife's 6.
    I placed the same Lightning cable on both phone and her 6 held the Lightning cable in place like a champ. Mine took "very" little effort to remove.
    Has anyone experienced this strange issue that I am experiencing ?
    I made a genius app for Sunday, so I hope that there is some sort of resolution for this annoyance.

    That's pretty weird, where did you buy it from? Don't tell me you bought it from official Apple store...:confused:

    Both phone and cables were purchased from the Apple Store.
