    Hey - I've noticed that my iPhone 7 feels like it's vibrating whenever I touch or hold it whilst it's charging? It almost feels like a current is flowing through it.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Is your iPhone set to vibrate when connecting to the charger?

    Sounds like it's not shielded/grounded properly. Have you tried using a different cable and/or adapter (as well as outlet)?

    Yes it's set to vibrate but it feels like a 'lighter' vibration - somewhat like a current is passing through it.

    It only seems to happen when I'm charging my iPhone 7

    So what about what I asked in my post that you quoted?

    This is difficult to understand your issue with the iPhone 7. It's set to vibrate while it's vibrating when you connect it to the charger. Basically, it makes a lighter vibration than what your suggesting the iPhone actually vibrates on a "Normal" basis?

    Have you tried turning off vibrate, then connecting it to the charger? Then what are your results? Are you using a certified Apple charging brick and cable?

    I've had this issue with almost every iPhone model for years particularly when charging when traveling overseas. 99% sure this is a result of using a non-grounded outlet, and I think the issue is not unique to the iPhone. Have experienced similar things with other devices.

    It doesn't sound like this is a vibrate issue or anything like that, seems like more of an electrical current one.

    The OP needs to provide more information based on the issue they are experiencing. This isn't enough to provide any real useful feedback. Perhaps answering your questions for example to move forward in troubleshooting.

    I have felt this vibration from lightly touching and sliding my finger along the side. Seems to be some type of voltage leak. It was not my device but several at the Apple Store on display. There have been posts about this in the forum.
