Be careful not to hit the mic or speaker port with compressed air... You can blow the diaphragms. (Speaking from unfortunate experience with an old iPhone)Buy a can of compressed air and blow a few blasts into the port. Not too close though... hold the can about 6 inches away. No need to use an object like a toothpick unless some lint or fuzz gets caught on the contacts.
I see and I Also see a tiny gap in the inside opening of the charging port on the sides is that's a design flaw or hadware issueI don't think you understand just what you're looking at.
The electrical contacts on the port are self-wiping (that's the term used in the electronics industry - it means they clean themselves each time you plug-in and unplug), and are on the upper and lower surfaces of the port, not at the far end/bottom. It's very unlikely you're able to see dust/dirt on those contacts, due to the viewing angle and narrowness of the slot. Because of their design, it's very unlikely they have dust/dirt on them.
What you're probably seeing is meaningless dust/lint on the far end of the port - as long as the connector still clicks into place, you don't have to worry about that. Eventually, pocket lint may build up at the bottom of the port and maybe it will keep the connector from clicking into place. To clean out that lint, I recommend using a thin, flexible, plastic pick (like the tooth pick/flosser I've shown below. Be very gentle - just enough to dislodge the lint from the bottom of the port.
Do not use the SIM tool - it's too stiff, and not well designed for the task.

Not that way before that the lighting port metal bracket holder the inside of it where the lighting port is there tiny gaps on the side it's not the edge of the plugsThe "gap" is not a design flaw or a hardware issue - you're probably seeing the parts of the mechanism that click into the depressions on the edges of the plug - the part that clicks.

I tried my sim tool from a previous iPhone did I do right thing
There was black spots and dust inside the port
My charging port I see a tiny gap on the side is that an issue
Great idea. I have soft picks similar to these so I'll give it a try.The best and easiest thing to clean ports are these. The rubber is "grippy" and picks up all lint. The rubber is soft and flexible so you won't damage anything. I also use these (very gently) to clean the speaker grills.
