    Hi guys,

    I know this question has been asked many times but i still haven't been able to get a solid answer.

    If i keep iPhone plugged in to the wall charger at 100%, will it still draw power from the battery or from A/C? Will I be able to save a charging cycle and is this a good habit according to Apple?

    Thanks in advance.

    The A/C
    Will I be able to save a charging cycle and is this a good habit according to Apple?

    Thanks in advance.
    I'm not sure about "saving a charging cycle", and what habit are you referring to? Using the device while plugged in?

    Yes if we exclude the overheating issues, does Apple recommend that?

    I haven't read anything where Apple states that using the device while plugged in is not recommended, and I haven't read anything that states that they "recommend" it. Having said that, Apple clearly states that you can use your device while charging via the following link.

    Power is to your iPhone battery as sweets are to a human: It has the potential of inflicting too much of a good thing. Keeping your iPhone plugged into power can shorten its batterys life span, or the amount of time before you must replace it. You actually strengthen your lithium-ion battery and prevent its premature demise each time you make it power your iPhone on its own, without the crutch of a power source. As Apple puts it, Its important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. So, if you keep your iPhone plugged in, in an attempt to save a charge cycle, you'll actually defeat your purpose. The best way to conserve charge cycles is to use the device less. If you average 8 hours per day usage, cut it back to 7 hours per day.
