How to fix Charging On Hold warning in iPhone iOS 16

Are you using the latest iOS 16 on your iPhone and getting the “Charging on Hold” message while trying to charge your iPhone battery? Let’s understand this warning message. Apple has implemented a number of safety mechanisms on iPhones to protect them from battery damage situations. The highest element that can damage a battery is heat. We explain how to fix the Charging On Hold warning in iPhone iOS16.

After you upgrade your iPhone to iOS 16, you may see a message similar to a pending error. Does this mean the iPhone charging unit is broken? Of course not. This is Apple’s internal method of protecting your iPhone from potential damage.

A charging error is a message that appears when your iPhone’s temperature gets higher than expected while charging. You don’t have to worry if you come across this message as it usually disappears when the phone cools down. Your iPhone will then continue to charge.

This fail-safe mechanism comes with iOS 16, and similar to the emergency override, Apple introduced it to extend battery life. A Charging On Hold error message appears regardless of heat source. It can be caused by your charger, iPhone or other external factors.

How to fix Charging On Hold

  • Stop Charging the iPhone

If you see a message that your iPhone is Charging on hold, stop charging immediately. Disconnect the charging block from the power outlet. Let your iPhone cool down before charging again. To speed up the cooling process, we recommend turning off your iPhone.

  • Stop running power-intensive apps while it is charging.

When the need to allocate resources to run apps is minimized, the heat and temperature of your iPhone is also reduced. Running heavy apps or tasks on your iPhone can slow down your iPhone and increase its internal temperature. So close apps you are not using.

  • Avoid Wireless Charging.

MagSafe charging heats up your iPhone more than traditional wired charging. It looks like charge on hold is the cause of the problem. Use the USB-C to Lightning adapter that came with your iPhone and the 20W USB-C power adapter to charge the device instead of MagSafe.

Shutting down your iPhone completely.

Shutting down your iPhone completely is the fastest way to cool it down, but it certainly prevents you from doing anything else with it. You’ll have a good idea that it’s cool enough just by touching its back to see how hot it is. However, it helps to get it out of the case.
