    No, it will not function when charging but because inserting it into your iPad Pro for 15 seconds of charge will give you 30 minutes of battery life, there would be no necessity to do what you ask.

  • No, it does not. Apple claims this is for performance reasons. Of course Apple also claims the iPhone battery is plenty big enough, so they seem to be lacking in credibility.
