The first issue that’s more common than you might think is simply that your charger isn’t plugged in all the way, if you have a case on your phone ,it might be preventing your charger from getting all the way into the charging port of your iPhone or might be causing the charger not to sit straight or flat.So make sure the charger is plugged in all the way or try removing your case to see if that helps.
Another issue might be that your iPhones charging port is dirty over time.Dust and dirt can build up inside the port which can coat the receptors inside the charging port and stop your charger from working.You can clean out the inside of your iPhones charging port with a cotton swab or toothpick.We wouldn’t recommend using anything made of metal like a paperclip because that could end up scratching or damaging the inside of the port .Ensure your charger is clean as well once you’ve cleaned them both try plugging your charger and again if that didn’t do the trick try using a different charging cord USB adapter or wall outlet if you had your charger plugged into a computer try using a different USB port or plugging it into a wall outlet instead your phone will charge faster when plugged into a wall outlet then into a computer.

DFU mode allows your Apple device to interact with iTunes without activating the boot-loader. DFU mode restores your iPhone from any stage so it is a great tool to overcome this problem. To enable DFU mode perform the following steps:
Step#1: Launch iTunes app from your computer and connect your iPhone with your PC using lightening cable.
Step#2: Power off your iPhone. Once your device has turned off, press and hold the power button for atleast 3 seconds. While holding on to the power key, press the home button. For iPhone 7 and above you need to press the volume down key instead of the home button.
Keep both buttons pressed at the same time for at least 10 seconds. Now release only the power key. Don’t release the home button or the volume down key as of now.
Step#3: If you have successfully entered DFU mode, display will remain black with no content.
If Apple logo pops up this means that you have not entered DFU mode. If this is the case then repeat step#1 and step#2 again.
Step#4: Upon successfully entering the DFU mode, you will see an option on your iTunes to restore the device. You can choose any of the options i.e. (Restore your iPhone to factory settings) or (Restore your iPhone from previous backup).
