Hi everyone,

Quick question. I now have the IPSE and I was wondering if I can leave it charging the whole entire night?
The reason I am asking because I am just afraid that it will overcharge and fry the internal circuit board.
Is this the case with all iPhones and for the iPhone SE?

Is it safe to leave the iPhone charging the entire night or the entire day without damaging the circuits?

I heard on a technology podcast show that leaving an iPhone charging most of the time will make the battery last even longer.

No it's not. see that's why companies, regulators, government make sure they design unsafe phones and don't warn you before hand, so that it burns, burns your house down etc. etc. etc. :)

All recent iPhones have a system so that the phone starts charging slower and slower the closer it gets to 100%. That is why you may pick up your phone after a long charging session and it will be at 98-99%. No need to worry about charging for long periods of time.

Not even just the recent ones.
