the iPhone to die faster than usual. Is that true?

Yeah, it's not very good for your phone. Especially the battery and the U2IC

What's the U2IC?


It's a chip on the logic board that helps the power from your charger get to the battery

This is totally normal, why do you even buy the thing if you don't use it?

I've used plenty of apps on my phone while it was charging for well over a year now and I've had no issues. The only thing which will be different is that the phone will charge more slowly, because you are doing things on the phone which require power too. If you want to quickly charge your phone, it is best to completely shut it down and then plug it into the charger. However, if you want to use the phone while it's plugged in, there will be no issues.
