    My iphones always mess up in the month of july for the past 3 years, & today i say to myself hmmmmm i havent recieved a texted today thats strange. I click the message app & 8 text are waiting. Not 1 notification, not a bright screen or anything. Im starting to think apple does this on purpose as i was told after 365 charges they start messing up (apple employee) so 1 charge a day a year. Not sure how true that is but, im sure some of you have just the best sarcastic answers in world!

    Cycles, not charges. For instance, if you charge your phone 50% today and 50% tomorrow (totaling 100%), those two charges together equal 1 cycle. And, I believe it is 400 cycles rather than 365. If you fully charge your phone every two days, like I do, that means the battery will be capable of reaching full capacity for over two years. Even after 400 cycles, the battery should retain ~80% of a full charge.

    I've owned an iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPad mini and iPad Air 2 for over a year and have never seen any problems.

    At the Apple Store
    I have all of my Apple devices and they never have big problems. Also, Apple employees aren't the most knowledgable when it comes to "insider" type stuff. I have family members that are using 4-5 year old iPads that don't have issues with battery life or functionality. Those probably have over 400+ cycles and they still work. Same with my stuff. No issues at all.

    Also, battery cycles, like the above poster mentioned, are not counted as daily plug ins. And 365 seems like an awfully specific number. Apple says that after 400 full cycles you will get 20% less overall battery capacity, not destroy your phone.

    Just another conspiracy theory to scare people and paint Apple in a bad light.

    Either you are extremely unlucky or you don't know how to use your equipment correctly. I'd probably be leaning towards the latter for my prediction.

    All of the iPhones that I've kept have lasted for 2-3 years without any major issues. I'm approaching 2 years with my 6+. I'm considering one more year before I upgrade.

    A Natural State
    1. Correlation =/= causation
    2. Apple Store employees =/= trustworthy sources
