Apple users have received a cautionary warning against leaving their iPhones to charge overnight while they sleep, as this could potentially have serious consequences.
Allowing our phones to charge overnight is the perfect time to restore our phone battery levels, given that there’s no risk of needing to disconnect them prematurely.
This is something that pretty much everyone does without worrying about any concerns.
However, it may be time to reconsider as Apple has issued a strong caution to iPhone users who plug their phones in while they’re asleep.

The company has highlighted that such behaviour could cause serious damage to the product and electrical items.
But that’s not all, as it is actually a potential health hazard that can cause fires and electric shocks.
In an official statement from the tech giant, it is explained that you should not in any instance sleep with your phone under your pillow or anywhere on your body while it’s plugged in.
It warns: “Don’t sleep on a device, power adapter, or wireless charger, or place them under a blanket, pillow, or your body, when it’s connected to a power source.
“Keep your iPhone, the power adapter, and any wireless charger in a well-ventilated area when in use or charging.
“Take special care if you have a physical condition that affects your ability to detect heat against the body.”
