More Information:

Apple users may encounter a minor glitch when connecting in reverse order i.e. lightning plug first then USB. If the USB cable is plugged in slowly, the charge symbol may not show. To rectify this, either plug the USB in quickly, or connect the USB first, then connect the lighting plug.
