    hi

    I have an iPhone 5s that I was recently given by my brother, and he said it was "playing up" (I had no idea what he meant by this) and it seems (I'm not 100% on this) but when it's charging, (using a Polaroid cable to the wall plug) the touchscreen has a mind of its own! I will be scrolling one time and it will click something and then another thing and I'll have lost where I was I have seen many issues but I wasn't sure wether it's my phone or wether it's my charger (I don't think it does it when it's not charging but it could still be my phone)

    Thanks in advance

    Jamie

    Does it have to be a genuine iPhone 5s charger?

    It certainly would be better if it was.

    Non-Apple charger/cable can cause serious problems. If you intend to use a third party product, please check whether it's MFi (Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad).

    Yeh I dare to use it when it starts playing up because it starts pressing random buttons and sending things to people lol, I have ordered a genuine 5s charger so hopefully it should all be sorted, thanks everyone for all your help
