Charging iPhone on Lenovo Yoga C740

2020-10-03, 18:53 PM

Hi! Is there an adapter of some kind to plug in on my computer so I can charge my IPhone? I didn’t realize there wasn’t a USB port when I bought the computer. Thanks so much!

Solved! See the solution

Which iPhone do you have?

 

The specs for the C740 list three USB ports: 2 USB-C and 1 USB-A.  The more-common USB-A port is on the right side of the laptop, forward of the power button. Most recent iPhones use a lightning connector. USB-to-Lightning cables are readily available, including USB-C to Lightning. 

 

The cable links are just examples. I have probably 20 USB-A to Lightning cables of varying lengths, short for external batteries, long to reach the bedroom plug-in and in-between for the cars.

Hi thank you for responding. The port near the power button is used for my mouse. I have to use a mouse because of severe arthritis in my hands. The ports on left side do not fit the standard iphone charger. I have the new iphone SE

Pretty sure the SE still has a lighting port, so the USB-C-to-Lightning cable I linked, above, will work. Alternatively, you can use the USB-A cable that came with the phone connected to a USB-A female to USB-C male adapter. I have a whole box of those just for all the USB-A things I have.

 

Another idea is a Bluetooth mouse to free up the USB-A port. My laptop sits across the room connected to an HDTV. A corded mouse is out of the question for me. 

 

A third idea is a USB-A dock. Turn that lone USB-A port into 3. Or 7. They're cheap, too. Also available in USB-C flavors that give you USB-C, USB-A, HDMI, Ethernet... whatever you like.
