    I had my phone next to my bed charging all night. This morning it was at 100% as expected but I looked again a couple of hours later and it was at 95% but it has been plugged in the whole time. Anyone know what is up with that??

    Third party charger not outputting enough power and iCloud backing up causing the battery drain?

    Idk what's up with that, but I had the same thing happen this morning. On 5.0 still. Looked at the phone100%, took a shower and it was at like 96%. I think as a power saving feature(ur electric bill not ur phone) they have set the phone up to quit taking charge once it hits 100%. I have no idea if this is true. Bu other than 1 time, this morning. That's the only battery issue I've had. And the battery is still running strong today after that issue even.

    Not 100% sure but don't most/all apple products don't charge unless the charge is less than 95% or 90%

    And as mentioned, it stops charging at 100%

    And if iCloud is sending back ups it uses more power

    Yes they charge whenever you want. My windows laptop doesn't charge unless the battery is below 90%

    Not true. It should stay at 100% when plugged in and fully charged. If your battery life is fine, ignore it. If you have decreased battery life take it in to an Apple Store and swap it out.

    Must just be my MacBook air, it doesn't charge at anything above 95%
