This article will tell you everything you need to know about the iphone battery:
For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, it’s important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).
A lithium-based battery is not subject to a memory effect, so charge whenever you want.
Thanks! I did read over that and have taken the steps mentioned and fiddled around with settings of my phone to optimise use. I was just wondering if anyone else had anything else to add about charging habits specifically and what works best... I think mainly I'm just being paranoid about my phone dying prematurely since it's the first time I've owned such an expensive gadget!
Also, can you overcharge it? Is it bad to leave it on the charger overnight? I've done some searching in other threads/ webpages and there seems to be some discrepancies but for the most part people seem to think that it will be fine?
Also, can you overcharge it?
No. You can't overcharge the iphone. As stated earlier, charge whenever you want. Mine is connected to the charger every night to insure I have a fully charged phone every morning.
If you follow the directions in that article, you'll be fine. Quit worrying, its a very robust device with a very good battery. Many millions have been sold & the vast majority of users have zero problems. This place is like an emergency room, the only people here are people with problems.
