I was having a charging problem with a certified aftermarket cable. Cleaning out the charging port on my phone helped immensely. (I used a toothpick to clean out all the pocket lint, etc.)

Having issues with both USB ports and connecting my iPhone. I use a short lightning cable to connect my iPhone to Apple Carplay. The iPhone often disconnects from Apple Carplay. At the point where the USB end goes into the port on the Honda (EX), I notice the connection is loose and it jiggles a little side to side. I’ve tried three different USB lightning cables, one of them from Apple. All of them are a little loose where the connection is to the car. Anybody else experienced this?

I started this thread several weeks ago and now I realize the issue for me was with my iPhone X. Ten days ago I upgraded my iPhone X to iPhone 11 Pro and no more problems. I'm almost certain that it was due to some debris inside the iPhone X not allowing it to make a good connection with the lightning cable. Although I tried cleaning it inside, I didn't do a good enough job. Now it's working perfectly with my iPhone 11 Pro.

Glad to hear your issue is resolved. CNet suggests toothpicks and compressed air (after backing up and with power off) to keep the charging port debris-free ongoing:

I started having issues connecting with the 1-foot lightning cable I've been using for the last two years. I found two things I needed to check:

1. Pocket lint build-up in the port connection on the phone.
2. Gunk built up in the lightning cable end that plugs into the phone.

I cleaned the lint out of the phone port and took a pencil eraser (lightly) to clean up the end of the lightning cable and things went back to normal. Check both and see if it helps!

Good reminder as a maintenance step. Additional suggested cleaning 'tools' above include toothpick and compressed air. :)
