While Apple is now on the record confirming that iDevices that appear to be fully charged aren’t always that, the company is saying the process is the same for all iOS devices.
As reported by Ina Fried in AllThingsD, the new iPad and all previous iDevices claim to be at 100 percent battery power before being completely charged. This, says Apple, is the most efficient process and has worked since 2007.
“That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like,” Apple VP Michael Tchao told. “It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.”
The battery for the new iPad reliably lasts ten hours, which, in our opinion, is the most important thing.
