When should I charge my iPhone 4S should I wait till the battery goes completely flat or just charge it when it gives "20% Battery Remaining" message.


While going through couple of threads, came to know that few people say :-


"you should completely drain your battery once in each month"



whereas the other group of people believe :-


"this was required with older ni-cad or ni-mh batteries (like 10 years ago) to recalibrate. not required (and not recommended) with li-ion."



So what's the fact what does Apple say about it, does anyone know?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6
