So what's the proper way to charge your iPhone? The way I've heard and that I do is that I let it drain to atleast 10-15% and then I charge it untill like 90-100%. I'm wondering, does it matter if I plug it out at like 30% or if I play with it while charging? What's the best way to charge your iPhone? Oh and does the charging automatically stop at 100% even if it's plugged in?


Thanks in advance.

You can charge it any time you like, once a month you should drain down to 5-10% and then fully charge it back. Also when it reaches 100% it will not over charge the phone, its designed not to over charge.

You can charge you phone any time. The only reason to let it drain to a very low point is to recalibrate the software that tracks the battery level. I charge my iPhone 5 every other night usually.
