Iphone Battery Conditioning


Last week I paid for a replacement iPhone 4S at the Apple store, for my water damaged one.

The battery life on the replacement is WAY better than the old one.

Should I treat the new one differently (fully discharge it regularly, fewer top up charges etc)?

Run it down to empty once in a while (once or twice a month, to the point it won't turn on) but otherwise charge it when it is convenient or when you need it. Don't lose too much sleep over it.
