iPhone Liquid Detected in Lightning Connector Error  – Class Action Investigation

CSK&D is investigating a class action lawsuit against Apple following widespread reports of a glitch in iPhones that results in repeated alerts stating that liquid was detected in the phone’s lightning connector. Specifically, owners of recent iPhone models running on either iOS 14 or iOS 15 have reported a strange error that pops-up whenever they plug their charging cord into their phones, warning of “liquid detected in lightning connector,” even though no moisture has gotten into the charging port.  The error pop-up gives the user two options of “Dismiss” to stop charging or “Emergency Override,” to force the charging process. Some have reported the error pop-up remaining even after selecting “emergency override,” preventing the phone from being charged.

If you own an iPhone that has experienced this error preventing the phone from being charged at times, please fill-out the form below.
