We recently covered a report that concerned regarding the new iPad’s battery charging issue in which the battery kept charging even if the 100% percent mark show. On that batterygate issue, Apple’s VP Michael Tchao has spoken to clarify the ambiguity in which it’s determined that this is a special feature by the fruit giant in which your device after reaching 100% mark discharges for a while and then re-charges again in-order for the device to not get damaged if the plug is kept connected with the device for even a long time.
Speaking with AllThingsD , Tchao said
That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like . . It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.
It looks like the analyst and critics stepped a little over the line considering the fact that the new iPad is specs wise a hopeless product compared to the previous model. Well now the early adopters needn’t worry as their is nothing wrong with their devices afterall.
Not only this mechanism is embedded for the new iPad but this phenomenon goes to the iPhone and iPod Touch devices as well. This is indeed a great feature and most probably this feature would be found in every current top-line products so that your battery doesn’t get over0charged in event your device is left plugged in for a longer period of time.
