Apple Explains Why iOS Devices Keep Charging After They Reach 100%

Apple has confirmed earlier reports that iOS devices continue charging after reporting a full 100% charge.

AllThingsD follows up a report from CNBC which revealed that when the battery indicator reads 100%, it's actually full enough to give you Apple's promised battery life.

Apple does in fact display the iPad (and iPhone and iPod Touch) as 100 percent charged just before a device reaches a completely charged state. At that point, it will continue charging to 100 percent, then discharge a bit and charge back up to 100 percent, repeating that process until the device is unplugged.

Apple VP Michael Tchao told AllThingsD that doing this allows iOS devices to maintain an optimum charge.

"That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like," Tchao said. "It's a great feature that's always been in iOS."
