    Is it better to charge my iphone from (5%to 100%) OR from (15% to 85%) ?
    Some say that charging it from 15% to 85% save some charging cycles,isn't it?

    I'd recommend charging it whenever you can.

    None of this is necessary. Just plug it in whenever you want and charge it.

    But Apple says that the battery of the iphone has nearly 1500 charging cycle before replacement needed and these charging cycles depend on how many times charged from 0 to 100%.

    If you charge from 15% to 85%, that's 70%. So you have 30% left before using another battery cycle.
    So, from 15% to 85% again (15% + 30% = 45%. Here's yout battery cycle used).
    45% to 85%, there's 40%.
    So there is 60% left before you use another battery cycle.

    That's how it works.

    (95% to 100% doesn't use a battery cycle, that's only a 5% charge).

    You can charge 1500 times from 0-100% or 3000 times from 25-75% percent or 15 000 times from 34-45% percent. No matter the battery indicator says, you will use a battery cycle.

    Don't overthink this kind of stuff and enjoy your phone.

    Let's say, for example, that you charge your device's battery from 0 to 100% once a day. It would still take over 4 years before it allegedly would need replacing. Do you plan on keeping that particular device that long?

    Default Best way to charge my iphone?

    I did all these calculations a while ago, and came to the conclusion that I should get a life, a real job, and charge my phone whenever, so before my battery give up, get a new phone.

    I just charge mine whenever it needs it, depending on my plans. I guess I don't think about charge cycles.

    I charge my phone whenever I feel like it. I plug in my phone to charge at night before going to bed and charge it throughout the day. If and when I have to go all day without a charge I usually don't have a problem.

    I think this is not necessary. Charge your phone when you need to charge it. I only charge when it ask me to. When it's 20%. And I leave it plugged until it reaches 100%.
    You don't need to worry about those things

    Don't worry about charge cycles.

    My 5S will be three years old in November. It has 310 cycles with 85% of the battery capacity left.
    My 8 month old 6S+ has 60 cycles with 96% capacity left
    My 8 month old 6S has 67 cycles with 97% capacity left.
    My 6+ is 1.5 years old now 175 cycles with 97% capacity left
    My 3 year old iPad Mini 2 has 128 cycles with 90% capacity left

    These devices will be long replaced by the time the batteries are worn down enough to even begin to notice.
