The Reason Your iPhone Keeps Dying Will Surprise You.
These days, it seems like charging our phones is the number one thing we have to worry about, at all times. Our entire lives are contained in those little devices, from our schedules to our work correspondence to our social scenes and our banking -- in other words, (and this might sound dramatic), if it dies, we die too.
There's also a lot of information swirling around about how better to preserve your phone's battery, which naturally decreases in staying power over time. Some believe you should drain it completely while recharging, some think it's best to charge overnight and not charge it all day, and others think that whenever they lose some battery life, it's best to plug it back in.
As it turns out, your charging approach might actually be the reason why your phone keeps dying. Check out the post below to find out the new info on the best approach for keeping that lithium battery alive and charged -- the solution might not be what you were expecting.

Phones these days do a lot, so they tend to drain their batteries pretty quickly. Sometimes, it feels like you're charging your phone all the time.
There are also a lot of myths surrounding the proper way to charge.
