My 2 months old ipad mini's lightning cable had some corrosion

I got my brand new ipad mini from my cousin, he bought it in singapore and i actually live in indonesia. My 2 months old ipad mini is working properly, but in these days i got some problem with the lightning cable. Sometimes it wont charge my ipad and when i take a look closely there are some black spots like corrosions in both sides. I read some same complaints in the apple discussion forum and there are some people that couldn't get the new cable because the apple retailer didnt believe that they didnt spilled any liquid on the cable. AND MINE TOO. Ive never spilled anything on my cable and barely even touched the gold plated with my hand. HOW COME THE CORROSION COME? And how do i could get the new one since i live in indonesia where ipad mini hasnt release yet. :(

See this discussion for some very specific analysis of the lightning corrosion problem, although no solution yet offered.

  • Hi Apple! I am having a few problems with my 6 month old iPad mini (ios 7.1.1). I am using my iPad and then some time later it just restars! Don't know why and it just keeps doing it! Please fix or if I restore my iPad will it do any good? Thank you

    Plug your iPad into your computer, open iTunes, and click Restore. This will reset your iPad to factory settings, so make sure everything important is stored safely. Once the restore is complete, do NOT restore from your backup.
    If you still have problems, take the iPad to the Apple Store or another AASP (Apple Authorised Service Provider). If you're still within warranty, any service will be of no cost. Check your serial number here or find your receipt.
    Hope I've helped!
    PS: This is a peer-to-peer forum. Apple generally doesn't pay attention here.

  • I plug my 1 month old iPad mini retina into a uk plug socket using the out of the box charger, it charged from 0-27% in 3 hours and now refuses to charge at all. Any ideas are more than welcome!!!

    I plugged my iPad Mini Retina in to charge this morning in a UK plug socket using the official out of the box charger.
    It charged from 0-27% in roughly 3 hours.
    I have come home to find it is not charging at all, when turned off when I plug the powered cable in it does turn on as if it is receiving power but it does not charge.
    It is 1 month old and hasn't experienced heavy usage as such.

    Thanks Sig. The information is here: Anything useful stand out?

  • Month old iPad mini died after charging.

    My iPad mini is just over a month old. I charged it this evening and it became very warm and will not turn on. I tried to reset it to no avail. I am pretty ticked off about it.

    Your iPad has a one year limited warranty.
    Did you try restoring ?  >  iTunes: Restoring iOS software

  • 2 month old ipad suddenly not charging

    Hi there, hoping someone can help. Our 2 month old ipad is suddenly not charging, all that appears is a battery with a red bolt on it and nothing more. Any ideas on what might be happening?

    Hello there, AimeeORourke.
    The following Knowledge Base article provides some instruction to follow to troubleshoot your particular issue:
    iPhone: Hardware troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2802
    Specifically, you might try the following:
    iPhone displays the low-battery image and is unresponsive
    If you see the image below, charge the phone with an iPhone USB power adapter for at least 15 minutes.
    You should see this image when iPhone begins to charge:
    If the screen still displays the low-battery icon, try turning iPhone off and then on again.
    If the issue persists, try resetting the iPhone while connected to the iPhone charger.
    Thanks for reaching out to Apple Support Communities.
    Cheers,
    Pedro D.

  • What is the difference between the new and old ipad mini case?

    I was wondering what the difference is between the old ipad mini case and the new one which came out with the ipad mini with retina display?

    I just bought an iPad Mini case for my iPad Mini with Retina Display, and it DOES NOT FIT...  This particular case has a hard plastic cradle for the iPad to fit into and it does not wrap around the edges enough to hold it in...  I am shocked at how snug these cases will fit, even though there is only a 0.01" difference in thickness...  So again, I repeat, an iPad Mini with Retina Display WILL NOT FIT into the first gen iPad Mini case!

  • Why do some next generation ipads have a lightning connector and some the old connector

  • HT1692 My contact list has not transferred from my old iPad mini to my new iPad mini.  How do I accomplish this? My calendar and email transferred just fine.

    How do I get the contacts from my old iPad mini to my new iPad mini retina?
    Is there someone I can talk to?

    One way is to download the app My Contacts Backup on your old iPad.  Use the app to back up your contacts as a vCard attachment to an email.  Send the email to yourself, then open the email on your new iPad and tap the attachment to import the contacts.

    Try #5.
    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

When I try to download apps to my new iPad Mini, it tells me my billing info has to be confirmed. After confirming with same info that is already there it tells me to contact support, no help up to this point.

    Could the credit card be expired?
    Beyond that, what you need to do is contact iTunes support, they can tell you exactly what is wrong, none of us here can do that.
    In the lower right corner of this page is a 'contact us' link. Click on that and you'll see a page full of info and links, one of which is iTunes support.
