    is it bad to charge phone whilst using it?

    When my girlfriend got her battery changed the technician told her not to use it whilst charging it. I find this to be total rubbish. I can't find evidence of that and the apple website suggests it is safe to do so. She is worried to charge whilst driving in her car because of this. Can you guys confirm if her concerns merit anything?

    The battery thing puzzles me to. Some people run their battery flat before charging, I never do ....I charge small regularly or from 20% to 80%....what is the right way to do it...and I am guilty of using while I charge...

    Is perfectly fine to use your phone while its charging, I have no idea why a technician would say that.

    I've been charging my 5s for 3 years while I use it. In fact, when I'm in my truck it's permanently on charge and in almost constant use. It gets hammered. No issues.

    Yes, I think mechanic has told the right thing. Even for me I don't use my phone anymore while charging.
