    I always let my phone go all the way to zero when I first obtain it to make sure the battery is okay. It successfully went to 0, then died, then I charged it up. No issues.

    This isn't so much calibrating as making sure the battery is good and doesn't die at 20%, though.

    These are not ni-cad batteries. No need. Just do a full cycle and make sure the numbers add up properly

    Yeah, I calibrated once I got it out of the box. I calibrate my smartphone batts about once a month.

    First thing I did. So far so good, but hard to say if it actually helps, just something I automatically do with a new device. I'm consistently getting right about 10 hours on a full charge with my 6 Plus, under moderate mixed use — some games and camera use that eat battery, but also some low-CPU stuff like iBooks and podcast playback. That's 10 hours of actual screen on usage (~50% screen brightness), not standby time.

    We aren't really calibrating the batteries more like calibrating the percentage sign lol...

    Was I supposed to let it get to 0? I charged at 1%.

    Is it bad to leave your phone plugged in the charger all night? These are prob myths.

    No because Apple actually only lets you charge to around 96% or so and then trickle charges to 99% and then drains until 96% again or something like that. If Apple just let the battery keep accepting a charge then yes.. But basically anything rechargeable nowadays will have safety nets like such in place.
