Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. I will do my best to help you today.

To give you an accurate answer, I have some follow up questions for you:

Has the phone been under sunlight or any exposure to heat recently?

Please connect it to itunes to see if it gets detected

Apparently it was left in the sunlight. ITunes does not recognize the device
Technician: Ameen Khan, Mobile Expert replied 2 months ago

I see, that must have caused it. The battery must have been swelled or damaged. The best way to have this inspected is to take it to the Apple store and they will check it for free for you. They can also repair it on the spot if it is.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
