    The Lightning connector on my iPhone 5 is starting to get loose. I often have to jiggle the cord to get a good connection. :(

    Is this something they can fix at the Apple Store without replacing my phone? I've got a unit I'm very happy with, and I don't want a refurbished replacement.

    i had this happen to mine. i think the new style connector is more sensitive to dust getting into the port then the older type connector, i cleaned out my port and all was well.

    Good suggestion. I'll give that a try.
