    OK I just went to my local Apple store and got a screen protector and case for my new 13 Pro. what are your battery tips? Do I discharge every time? I’m at 58%. Do I charge at 50%. I know everyone has their own opinions

    Keep it simple and charge the device when you think it’s needs charging. I charge my iPhone 13 Pro with its USB cable and charging block overnight every night.

    I didn’t know with it being a new device if you should try to limit the charges or was that the old days. lol

    Understood. With that being said, check out the official “Maximizing Battery Life and Lifespan” information from Apple via the following link.

    I used to refer to the Battery University site years ago, and thought it became a bit obsolete or even gone. They apparently refreshed the site (don't know when) and should give you enough info. I understand the thrust of your question is more about everyday health keeping of battery, including what was used to be called "initial conditioning" etc. I have not checked the latest content yet, but hope it helps. Perhaps it might be referred to in the iMore site mentioned above.

    Charge it when it needs charging. It's that simple.I don't use chargers rated over 20W.

    What’s the wattage of the standard Apple charger

    is it better to charge it the same time every day/night so your iPhone can “learn” according to optimized battery charging within settings

    It depends. It used to be 5W, now it’s 19 or 20W.

    I would say so. But you don’t have to be precise to the minute. The feature learns your patterns on its own, so it will easily adjust to your charge “schedule”

    I just got my 13 Pro yesterday. should I be using the cord that it came with or does it really matter. does it say what wattage on the charging block on the bottom?

    if you take a day or two off of charging is that OK for it

    As a rule, I recommend using the usb that came with the device, but it is not a requirement.

    As for your second question, you do NOT have to charge your iPhone everyday unless you need to.

    I agree that it's best to use the cable that comes with the iPhone. However, I myself have purchased additional cables and when I do, I always make sure that they are Apple MFi Certified.

    Looking at the charge graph, I would say it is.

    The phone was off its charger since around 3:00.
