Chirp from I-phone when charging via USB

Post by bobsap » Sat Dec 22, 2018 7:45 pm

Anyone notice a chirp every 10-20 minutes from charging the iPhone from the USB port???

Have had my T5 Inscription for nearly 5-months and it just started a few weeks ago.

Perhaps a faulty USP port in the car, or yet another crazy apple update?

Doesn’t happen to me, im afraid!

Is it the same noise as when you plug into a charger, in which case I’d suggest it’s disconnecting/reconnecting momentarily, so some issue with connection. Check cable, make sure fully plugged into car end, defuzz the socket on the phone with a wooden cocktail stick (that’s my most common issue - accumulation of pocket-fuzz preventing the plug getting fully seated in the socket).
