Apple has an Optimized Battery Charging feature, the iPhone only fully charges at 80%, then fully charged to 100% the next morning. But iPhone being plugged in all night can cause it to overheat.

Charging twice during the day might be better than just charging it once at night. If you have to spend a lot of time in the car or go out, use the car charger or bring a power bank.
