    I don’t know about iPhones as I have an Android but like Joel, I used to wear the battery right down before recharging it to extend the battery life. I don’t do this anymore because a couple of years ago, I was made aware that nowadays the battery used in Androids can be recharged any time without shortening its life. Maybe Joel could ask an iPhone expert if it is the same with iPhones? That or switch to an Android 😉

  4. Im pretty sure battery technology has eliminated the need for this
