Why It’s Important: According to Apple and many others, users should keep their iPhone battery level between 30% to 80%. Consistently topping up to 100% isn’t optimal. While it may not necessarily damage battery health, regularly running down to 0% could prematurely lead to a battery’s demise, reported Macworld.
Apple also advises users to avoid exposing their device to ambient temperatures higher than 35° C or 95° F as it can “permanently damage battery capacity.”
