I own an iPad Air 2. Recently, the charging port has been “loose”.

I own an iPad Air 2. Recently, the charging port has been “loose”: the charger keeps falling out of position and wiggling is required to get it to work right at times. There are times I walk away while it is “charging” and come back to find it not charging.


I visited an Apple Store today. Was told that my charger port “expanded” because of using non Apple chargers. Told me they don’t offer repairs but 3rd parties may be able to. I asked two phone repair kiosks. Both said they could repair, but prices given were $99 and $80.


Is there a cheaper option? Just want to know I’m not good at DIY and probably won’t have the tools necessary.

Are the charging cables going fully into the port without gap? If not the charging port needs to be cleaned carefully with tweezers or a needle.

I’ve tried that. Doesn’t work. The guy at Apple store tried it to.

The problem is that the port is bigger than it should be, which causes it to be loose.

That would mean the charging socket is worn out and would need to be replaced.

As this is a high difficulty repair due to the laminated screen and the ribbon cable for the charging port assembly being soldered to the board I would recommend taking the iPad to a reputable repair shop to get it replaced.

I would get an estimate on the total repair costs making sure they include labor in addition to parts. Do they offer a one year warranty? Compare that to a new model iPad or even one that Apple has refurbished. Apple has relatively good pricing and if you don’t want to spring for a new one the refurbished ones are a good deal with a one year warranty and covered by Apple’s 14-day return policy. Also I have had sad results using 3rd party iPad chargers and cables. Yes, they are less expensive but the wires inside break easier and some even heat up the ports which “may” have caused the distortion in your iPad.

Your model iPad is still supported by Apple so may be okay for a few more years. Good luck.

I had same problem I literally just took a thin small piece of a foil wrapper and folded it and placed it on top of the other side of the charger cable in my iPads port

to put pressure on the charging cable against the port works perfectly now

Basically-

(port warped too loose and so I placed a thin strip of foil wrapper on top the cable and it made it snug again)
