iPhone 6s Plus charge port doesn’t securely hold cable

I find my charge cable comes out of the port fairly easily. And sometimes I have to rotate the lightning cable 180 degrees to get it to charge.

I suspect there’s dirt / debris stuck in there.

Any advice on cleaning it out? I was going to go in with a toothpick and maybe a vacuum.

Hesitant to use compressed air as it may force the debris in further.

Thanks

Take it to the Apple Genius Bar (I recommend an appointment before you go) and they will clean it out for free.

Yes. I did it a couple months ago with an iPhone 5c.
