  • Many of us have a habit of charging iPhones in our kitchens but are you aware of the side you are charging on – whether or not it is wet? Remember, wet, frayed, or broken chargers or cables can lead to electric shocks, fire, injury, or even damage your iPhone as well

–  Not Getting Battery Replaced

Not getting your iPhone’s battery replaced is yet another thing that can cause you a lot of money. Typically, an iPhone battery lasts 2 years. In that period, it can complete as many as 300-500 full charge cycles. After this, it isn’t that your battery won’t function but, it will only be able to hold 80% of its original capacity.

It is therefore recommended that you shed those extra few dollars and instead of buying a new iPhone variant or replacing the existing battery with a third-party battery, get it replaced by an Apple verified battery.
