    My iPhone 5 has been charging fine until today. When I plug it in to charge it starts to charge and then stops charging and keeps doing that every few seconds. It is when I am using my phone while it is plugged that it mostly happens; it charges fine for the most part when I just leave it and don't touch it while plugged in. Any ideas?

    Have you tried using a different cable?

    I have to say try another cable as well. I have one cable that will not charge if plugged in one way, but if I pull it out and flip it over, it charges just fine. All my other cables work with no problems either way.

    Do not worry, that's a cable problem, you should have to change the charging cable.

    Check the lightning connection on the cable and make sure the gold plating is still in good shape. I had to replace the dock connector on my phone because it was stripping the gold plating on all of the cables I would use.

    I actually think the port is the problem. My original lightning cable is ragged so I originally thought that was the problem. I purchased a new one and the same thing happens. I have to press my cable in pretty hard and few times for the charge to stick. This started happening a few weeks ago. I'm not covered with apple care. Would this be consider a defect?
