Default iPhone oddity

Today, my iPhone started giving me this weird error message about the cable not being an approved one and blahblah about how it might not work properly.

Kind of a hard thing to correct when there's no cable plugged in. Sigh. Apple. Kvetch Different.

To add to the fun, the speaker stopped working. Adjusting the volume produced a "Headphones" window, not a "Ringer" one as is normal.

Evidently this isn't an uncommon complaint when it comes to third party lightning cables, but a) the cable I use is pure Apple and b) again, it wasn't plugged in.

A few other people alluded to crud in the ports; pocket-born dust bunny babies.

And that turned out to be it. I blasted the headphone port out with compressed air. The speaker returned and the message departed.

Life is good.
