Wife has a work phone and left her 6 chilling in a drawer for around 3-4 weeks

Tried to use it yesterday but needed to be charged

Plugged it in and got the charging icon (battery with red bar-not the icon with a cable)
So left it over night - picked it up this morning, phone will not respond to anything

Plug into MacBook - nothing
Plug into mains - nothing
Hard reset - nothing

Completely unresponsive

Any help??

try a different outlet?
try a different cable / charger?
maybe the battery is dead?

iPhone 6 can take hours to react / charge and need a constant connection.

Thanks for the reply
Tried a few cables and outlets
Just seems strange that it registered it was charging by showing the icon and now it’s not doing anything
Will keep trying

well - the battery could be dead?

but if the power was not on for the entire time that could be the issue

good luck

If you've plugged it into a MAC and iTunes did not detect your device then this means that the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.
