The new IPhone  battery has been getting complaints of the battery with heating up or just losing power in all since Jan,9 2018.

 

The actual phone charger in the phone it doesn’t matter where the power comes from charging is always the same. You count on the phone’s software to prevent the most extreme form of this but its better to charge before the battery dies. A Lithium battery will have between 300 and 500 full charge cycles. So if you let your phone die every day, you would need a new battery in less than a year and it’s more common to get only more than two years out of that cell.

 

“Hybrid cars don’t have dramatically different batteries, but they only run through a fraction if the battery’s capacity. If you had a charger that would only charge to about 80% of the battery’s capacity, and the phone cut off at 20% or so, the battery might last a decade (assuming that power cycling is the only aging mechanism…some Lithium chemistries don’t last more that 3-5 years even without any use). Of course, you’d hate the battery life, and the phone makers would eliminate one reason people upgrade to new phones, so this is unlikely to happen.”-Apple

 

How do you feel hearing about the news with the IPhone battery?

 

“I feel uneasy that you spend all of this money on a phone and get a crappy battery, I have a IPhone 6 and I have trouble with it heating while I charge it or while I’m on it for awhile.”  -Keith Vaughn

 

Whether it be the new or old IPhone battery they will all heat up and may possibly catch on fire if you’re on them for a certain amount of time. Apple has said that they’ll give you some money off to replace your phone or phone battery if you have a warranty.
