    The battery will be fine charging it overnight. It won't ruin it.

    I'm asking because i know the battery charges in like 3 hours. And i'd let it plugged in more than 8 hours.

    Apples technology and software works very smart. Here's an article so you can be more familiar on how it works. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/22/t...ight.html?_r=0

    Thanks for the article share, I was a little worried about my also. I'm excited to try Zerolemon's battery case for the Plus when it comes out soon!

    I put mine on the charger each night if I'm below 60%.

    Regardless of my battery indicator, I always put my iPhone on the charger before bed and take it out after waking up.

    I do that most of the time, especially if the weather calls for anything that might knock out the power. But anything below 60% for sure.

    I use Belkin and it charges it quicker, have the car charger too if I need it. Battery lasts me all day and that is something I never had with Android

    Warm Welcome to iMore Edyy!

    if i let the phone charging over the night until morning, can it affect the battery?
    As Garz noted, Apple has smart software that won't let the charger, over charge your battery so everything should be fine. Smartphones and their software these days have become much better. If your phone is on however, there will be some trickle charge simply because it needs to keep everything running which requires power. So if the phone is off that would be best.

    Apple is the only device I have used that when I have it turned off and then put it on the charger it turns on automatically. So to not have this happen because it drives me nuts. LOL. I turn it off after I put it on the charger. I don't know why this is because when I used Sammy it didn't do that. Oh well. But I love that I made the switch.

    I've only had my 7 Plus for 2 days, but I had my 6 S Plus for over a year and I put it on charge every night when I go to bed regardless of amount of charge left and take it off charge the following morning when I go to work. Never had an issue.

    I agree with all the above comments. I have had apple phones for almost 9 years and everyone of them were plugged into charger at night and taken off in the morning. I have never had to replace a battery yet. My daughters battery went bad on her Iphone 6 and Apple replaced it for $84.00. To phrase an old time company, " They take a licking, and keep on ticking."
