Hey guys, as the title says My iphone has died completely it wont charge at all i have left it to charge for about three days now at my computer and at the wall outlet and i tried about 5 chargers to no avail.

i tried to enter DFU mode but i can't get it to even connect to my pc
i tried all of the power+home combinations 100 times over :confused:

some things worth noting: the phones battery depletes SUPER FAST like 30 minute fast and ive already changed my charging port it fixed the problem for about two weeks and now its back to where it was :(

any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance :)

Check the lightning port for debris. Take a paperclip and scrape out the lint inside.
If it still doesn't power on, there's nothing much you can do other than take it to Apple. As long as you have not had it repaired anywhere other than Apple (Inlcuding display replacements), the worst would be $269 for an out of warranty replacement in the US.
