    the charge cable keeps falling out won’t stay in the slot so can’t charge iphone6s, have tried a new cable too same problem, bother cables will charge my iPad though so cables are fine. Can you get the slot at bottom of iPhone changed as I feel there must be something missing that usually it grabs onto?

    Sounds like the port on the phone is simply worn out so much that it no longer is tight enough to hold the charging cable.

    Tip: Rapidly jamming cables into ports at odd angles and yanking them out sideways tends to wear ports out faster.

    Hi Thank you for replying, I have since fixed the problem of cable slipping out: there was a buildup of dust in the slot, once cleared all okay.
