The following guide tells you exactly how to supply power to the iPhone 6 when you are travelling to Lebanon using the G, A, B, C or D type Lebanese 220 volt 50Hz power outlets, Type G plug outlets will be used by a majority of Lebanese.

These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6.
