    Hi, does anyone out there also experience this strange sensation when plugging in the original charge cable you run your fingers on the back of the phone and it vibrates lightly and leaves a tingling feeling. Quite odd - only happens on charge. Doesn't matter where you touch the iphone on the back only it tingles.

    I read about this on another forum on an older ipad, but surely on the new iPhone 6 this should not be happening?

    Anyone else also experience this?

    That is caused by an unbalanced of earthing/grounding between the charger/device you are charging it from and the iPhone 6. The charger you are using is possibly a 2 pin with NO earth (aka "ground") connection to the mains socket, which could cause this. Unsure if this is dangerous, but our laptop used to do this and no harm came from it.

    Thanks uid15, this tingling sensation occurs when i charge the phone directly through the usb on my laptop so was wondering why this would be the case.

    You are welcome :) - yes, that would cause it.
