Posted October 11, 2018 10:33:32Apple’s new iPhone 7 Plus battery is supposed to last up to 10 hours of video playback and 30 hours of standby time, but some of the battery is reportedly clogging up your phone, leaving it feeling like it’s about to explode.
While most of the issues have been fixed, some users have found their iPhones with the battery clogged are still charging them off of the charger, according to AppleInsider.
The problem seems to be most apparent on the iPhone 7 Pro, which is a more expensive device.
While it’s still possible to use the phone’s Quick Charge 3.0 to charge the battery, it seems like you can’t even charge it via USB-C (unless you have an iPhone 6s, which has an included Lightning connector that you can use).
In an official Apple Support document, Apple describes how you can “add an additional charging cable for your iPhone 7.
The USB-c cable can be inserted directly into the Lightning port of the iPhone.”
The device is also reported to work with the Qi-compatible Qi charging pads.
If you’re concerned about clogging the battery of your iPhone, you may want to consider getting a battery-cleaning device.
We’ve seen this before with Apple’s other devices, including the iPad Air and MacBook Pro.
The iPad Air has a battery that clogs up with over 6 hours of battery life, but a new Apple Pro has a smaller battery that is supposed a full 10 hours.
Apple also says you can check the battery level in the Settings app by tapping on the Battery icon, and tapping “Check.”
