Keeping the Battery Charged or Depleted
There’s a lot of conflicting information on good charging habits, but “ideally,” you’ll want to keep your iPhone around the 50 percent charge mark as much as possible. Typically, that means a couple of things.
- Don’t leave your iPhone fully charged for too long. You don’t need to worry too much about this, but leaving it plugged in for truly extended periods isn’t advisable.
- Don’t leave it depleted for too long. Have an old iPhone in a drawer somewhere? Make sure to charge it up and use it once in a while.
- Switch on Optimized Battery Charging. This could help increase your battery’s longevity by putting a pause on charging at the right moments when you’re sleeping.
