Charger won't work on a iPhone 5C

Well basically I went to the shop and brought a 5C. I turned it on for the first time and set it up and everything. Then I noticed my battery was at 21%. So I connected it to the lightning cable then I had a notification 'This accessory will not support your iPhone'. So I tried it the other way round, I still had the notification. So I just thought it will charge later so I left it on overnight. Zzz. Then I checked my battery status: 17%. So I brought another charger and I STILL had that bloody notification. I got a bit p*ssed then. So because I was so bloody angry I didn't bother going to the shop I brought the phone from, I went to the Apple store and asked them to 'try' and charge it. They said it wouldn't charge. So I was a bit more p*ssed now because even the Apple store wouldn't be able to fix a phone their company made.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Charge level update: 5%. Extremely furious and not in a great mood at the moment.


I had a chat with the MANAGER of the store. He gave me an iPhone 5S which wasn't bad obviously. Set it up, chuck'd a SIM in. Perfect. BTW shop I brought it from was Tesco. So Tesco if you're reading this(Probability:0%) thanks for great customer satisfaction. Although I did get a !&&* lot p*ssed about u lot. And also thank you Jordan Spellman for offering me a 5C battery.

Hello Visax Jasmit,

It sounds like your battery is unable to hold a charge . If you have the tools and know some one willing to lend you their 5c battery, I would suggest swapping the batteries. If you dont have access to tools or a battery, iFixit sells battery replacement kits for your phone. If you buy a new battery and is still does not resolve your current issue, you could return the battery in accordance with iFixits return policies.

Best Wishes!
