Right to Repair

Thanks so much for the solution! We also  had the problem of just the distal tip of the metal casing breaking  off and get stuck in the iPhone charging  port.

The safety pin is a great idea- it is thin enough to fit between the side of the charger port and wedged piece of metal yet stiff enough to bend / dislodge the part. It only took a few minutes . Thanks so much for your post - it saved us time and probably the the frustration of the Apple store charging us for service and then just telling us we had to buy a new phone.
