    This has been a long standing debate - but figured I'd ask on here.

    Do we need to calibrate our new iPhone batteries? Charge them up to 100% and then run them to 0%, then charge them up again?

    What is recommended for best battery life?

    Not sure if the newer technology needs this kind of treatment or not.

    Thanks all!

    I don't really think it matters any more.

    Although charging my 6s seemed to take quite some time to actually get above 85 (it actually drained whilst connected to my MacBook syncing - that didn't happen on my 6, it would charge it too).
    Eventually got to 96 then it jumped to 100. I'm gonna run it flat before charging it again.
    I don't think it hurts to, whether it benefits or not.

    Personally I've always noticed iPhone batteries get better after a few cycles - even the 6.

    Charge it when you can, run it off of the battery when you need to.
