What’s the correct way to charge your iPhone?

To charge or not to charge?

There are plenty of misconceptions and myths about how we should charge our iOS devices; do you only start charging when it reaches 0%? Is it okay to plug your iPhone XR overnight? At what percentage should you stop charging?

It’s time for the truth. Keep reading, and you’ll learn what’s the proper method to charge your Apple products:

Battery types

The confusion about charging smartphones comes from old advice given for older types of batteries like the Nickel-Cadmium or Nickel-Metal-Hydride batteries. Lithium batteries have replaced these types of batteries for most of the smartphones today, so none of the old advice applies anymore. In fact, these outdated ways of charging may even be harmful to your phone.

Charge whenever you want

Now that we got that out of the way let’s get down to the point: there is no single right way to charge your phone. It doesn’t matter if you decide to charge your phone at 20% or 60%, you’re free to charge your phone anytime you want. However, it’s not a good habit to let the battery drain to a complete 0% before charging, as this kills the Lithium battery.

It’s okay to leave it at 100%

Similar to when you decide to charge your device, you can plug out anytime you want. There’s no need to charge it all the way to 100%. However, there’s nothing wrong with a full battery either. Modern battery technology prevents the battery from overcharging, so you don’t have to worry about charging your phone overnight.

USB power sources

Although all smartphones use the same USB power sources to charge these days, it’s best to the USB power source that comes along with your iOS product. That’s because Apple creates high-quality power sources, and cheap ones will damage your phone. In the worst case scenario, they may even injure you.


Now that you know how to charge your device, there’s no need to confuse yourself anymore. Charge away without worries!
