Make sure your Apple is fully charged. Do not have your Cords Of Steel charging cord plugged into your Apple when performing updates. Once you have verified your device has 75% charge or more, unplug your Cords Of Steel charging cord, then check to see if there is an update that needs to be done on your device. If so, please allow the update to fully complete before trying the cord again. If no update is needed, try rebooting the device (with your charging cord unplugged from device) and try the cord again. Last thing to check is if your power brick is working properly. Please try a different power brick and make sure to test the USB-A side that plugs into power brick by plugging the cord in both ways making sure the USB-A is firmly pressed in the power brick each way.
