    Are there any good ways to clean pocket lint out of the Lightning port?

    A dry Q-Tip should work well, not sure about a toothpick it might damage things.

    I don't think a Q-Tip will fit - it's too fat!

    If you have compressed air around, that might work also.

    If you look for makeup Q-Tips they're much thinner, so they might fit. Haven't tried it myself so i'm not too sure

    Go under a really bright light. Bend a pair of tweezers and use one side of them. I had a wall of lint against the back. I carefully picked at it and removed it. Now it charges perfectly.
