I have been told that if I charge the iPad when it is at 1/2 charge that the iPad will start to remember that it needs charged again. I was told the iPad will think it is a in a lower charge than it actually is.  So if I charge it every day at 1/2 charge by the time it gets to 1/2 charge, it will slow down or may not work.  This doesn't make any sense to me.  If full, is 100%  50% 20% why would the iPad think it needed charged when it was at half charge.  Does it have a  mind. Does it cause it to think in that position if I charge it at 1/2 charge? Does it sinc in that spot?  Hope you understand what I am trying to tell you.  My son is good with the computer electronics but this has me stumped?


Thank You, Judy Venema
