Hey guys, I bought a new iPad Air last Friday and both times that I have charged it, it will only charge to 99%. I am using the charger and cable that was in the box, and it is plugged in to a wall outlet, and charged overnight.
Is this something that I need to be concerned about? Any ideas about what is going on? Your thoughts please. Thanks.

if you are leaving it plugged in overnight this is normal behavior. Once the device reaches 100% it will stop charging and can discharge all the way down to 95% before the charger kicks back in. If you have not yet it is usually advised to run the device till it dies and charge it up fully to "calibrate" the battery.
