    This may sound noob but I'm trying to figure out at what point is the best way to charge and unplug my iPhone based from this chart posted by Apple on their website.

    Someone please explain this in a more understandable way? I would really appreciate it.

    The above chart is useless for your question. It tells you that a charge cycle is defined as charging the battery up to its maximum capacity as a whole, by no means consecutively.

    Charge your iPhone when you can. You can keep it plugged without any problem for as much time as you want, too.

    Most places will recommend running it down to 0 (or as close as iOS will let you) and recharging it once every month or so. Other than that, just charge it when it needs it - or you have access to a charger!

    It's a workhorse, not a device that needs to be pampered ;).

    These days even that's not really recommended in particular.

    It's mostly "charge whenever you want or need for as long or short of a time as you want or need".

    I keep seeing these threads about how to charge a battery. Guys, it's simple. Just plug it in! Lol. I charge my phone every night, if I need to top it off during the day I go ahead and plug it in again. I let it run down to 0 once every month or month and a half.

    ^^^Exactly. The days of arcane charging procedures are long over.
