Default a very small foreign body

I'm used to this thing where the bottom of the charge socket on the
iPhone gets compacted fluff in it and you have to scrape it out with a
non-conductive sliver of something, like a bit of hardwood.
But the technique failed on Saturday. No way would the phone charge. I
tried three chargers. On Sunday I had a look in the socket using a
bright light and a bench magnifier. There was a tiny particle in one
corner. Surely it was too small to matter? It took a lot of effort to
remove it. But after that the phone would charge.

You might find it interesting to subscribe to the YouTube channel of
Louis Rossman. He runs what appears to be a successful business
repairing Apple products, much of which has to be done using a
microscope, for that is the nature of modern electronics. He is
frequently critical of the design of the products he deals with daily
that readily allow something microscopic to render an entire laptop
computer (and not a cheap one) completely useless.

It's fascinating to watch faultfinding being done properly by somebody
who knows what they're doing, often on something that has been
rejected by the Apple company themselves as unrepairable. His opinion
of the company's repair policy seems to be very much in line with his
opinion of the design of the products themselves, and he does not
mince his words.
