Really excited!, just picked up my new iPhone 6, 64G - What is better for the longevity of my iPhone 6 battery

A.) Should I charge my phone straight out of the box?
B.) Should I drain the battery first out of the box before charging?

Thanks

Congrats on your purchase! :)

With lithium-ion batteries, there's no need to charge/drain your iPhone on first use. It is, however, recommended that you discharge and recharge once a month.

Just use the phone normally as you would. No need to completely drain it out of the box. I never drain my battery and battery life is great and reporting no issues here.
