If you feel like your iPhone is always dying– you might be charging it wrong.
Don’t worry, there are ways to fix it.
Why is my iPhone always dying?
iPhone batteries have improved since earlier models. However, they do not have an infinite lifespan and how you use it could deplete the battery faster. Most people have been charging their phones incorrectly without even knowing it.
The most common mistake is charging an iPhone for a long period of time– like overnight. It is actually recommended to avoid charging your iPhone all the way.
Studies have found that charging the lithium-ion battery to 100% is actually damaging. In turn, this reduces your total lifespan giving you fewer charges overall. Long charging periods can also cause the phone to overheat, which also causes damage. Many people think that 80% is the magic number, but there are varying opinions.
Two tips to save your battery are:
- stop turbocharging
- stop using your iPhone while it is charging
