Hi everyone, my 5S was dispatched yesterday morning and should be here by the end of the week. So I thought it would be a good time to talk about battery life... I've read Apple's page of guidelines and advice about what you should do to help maximise the life of the battery, but I've been told that many different things by that many different people that I thought it would be best to ask some questions and try and establish some sort of consensus from the good people of MacRumours. First, is it really a good idea, when you first get the phone and it's at 80% or so, to run the battery down completely before you charge it up, or is that just a myth? That's always a problem for me because I tend to sync my phone as soon as I get it, which means the phone starts charging automatically as soon as I connect the USB anyway! Also, is completely draining the battery once a month really all that helpful? The only reason I ask on this one is that with my iPhone 4, I never let the battery run down completely, but I never had any problems. With my iPhone 5, I'd make sure the battery died once a month, yet at times my battery life was very poor, and got worse over the 8 months I had it. If there is a 'correct' way of doing things, I'd really like to find out if I could so that I don't end up ruining the 5S's battery!
