hi. When you get a new phone, do you charge it all the way to 100% then drain it as you use it to 0% or a low number?
Or do you use the battery at the percentage it's at and then drain it as you use it to 0% or a low number?

I have always used my phone with what power it came with out of the box and then charge it at night before going to bed. You are just wasting cycles by draining your phone to 0%. No need just plug in when going to sleep and unplug in the morning, repeat and do not worry about your battery. Apple has put a lot of technology in the iPhone so you seldom need worry about things like this.

Just use your phone and enjoy!

We definitely do the same. Use down the battery it comes with and charge it right back up.
