Should you let your iPhone die completely before charging it again or plugging it in?

Report as

I have an iPhone my self, I usually charge it when it hits 2% or 5% and only sometimes like once in awhile I would let it die completely and then charge it.

apparently, the battery lasts longer if you charge it before it goes completely flat. Either way, I don't think it makes too much difference though :)

Once a month they (Apple) recommend you fully drain your battery and then a full charge before fully draining and a full charge again. This is suppose to make your battery last longer. It seems to last longer when I charge it this way. Hope this helps.

Your iPhone is like a laptop, you don't want it to die completely if you can help it. I usually charge mine soon after the 10% warning pops up. If it gets to the 5% range I usually turn it off if charging it isn't an option.

When something is powered on or off, it uses ALOT of energy, so you should charge your iPhone before it dies completely

well if you even leave your phone on when its charging it heats up the battery and drains some long term life but we all do it and we all have bad battery life so its cool. its the way of life

Batteries have memories. The more you charge them when it is unnecessary then the faster they drain. It is ok to let it completely die at least once a month to retrain the batteries life memory. If you call Apple support they will give you more detailed 411

There is no need to completely drain or charge the battery during cycles. You can find more information about Apple batteries here. http://www.apple.com/batteries/
