  1. I was facing this charging issue after downloading ios 16 public beta it was only resolved after downgraded to ios 15.6. So I would advise the people to do the same.

    1. How do you downgrade to a previous iOS? My 13pro updated to 16.4.1 and it has been a nightmare ever since. It won’t charge randomly. Hard restart doesn’t fix it. Can’t charge with any Apple cord I have nor a wireless charging pad. Screen freezes and I can’t swipe randomly. Weird thing is this happens in the evening. In the morning I can charge it and it works. I spent hours today doing a back up and ensuring my photos were backed up. I did a factory reset and used icloud to set it back up. Thought things were fine, but nope. 10 pm it wouldn’t charge again. Nothing wrong with my charging port either. How can I get back to iOS 15?
