Apple does not advertise battery capacities for its new iPhone 14 lineup, but MacRumors has obtained this information from a Chinese regulatory database.
Three out of four iPhone 14 models feature larger battery capacities than the iPhone 13 lineup, with the exception being the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which is equipped with a slightly smaller battery than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Battery capacities for the iPhone 13 lineup:
- iPhone 13 mini: 2,406 mAh
- iPhone 13: 3,227 mAh
- iPhone 13 Pro: 3,095 mAh
- iPhone 13 Pro Max: 4,352 mAh
Battery capacities for the iPhone 14 lineup:
- iPhone 14: 3,279 mAh
- iPhone 14 Plus: 4,325 mAh
- iPhone 14 Pro: 3,200 mAh
- iPhone 14 Pro Max: 4,323 mAh
The same database accurately revealed battery capacities for all four iPhone 13 models and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro ahead of those devices launching last year. These same battery capacities for all iPhone 14 models were also leaked in a post on the Chinese website Weibo that was highlighted by the Twitter account ShrimpApplePro in June.
Apple says all four iPhone 14 models feature “all-day battery life.” iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max models feature up to one hour longer battery life for offline video playback compared to the equivalent iPhone 13 models, according to tech specs on Apple's website. At the same time, there is no directly comparable model for the iPhone 14 Plus.
Due to its larger 6.7-inch display size and lack of some Pro model features, the iPhone 14 Plus has the most extended battery life, according to Apple. However, this is not entirely true, as Apple's tech specs indicate that the iPhone 14 Pro Max still gets the most extended battery life for video playback, likely due to the ProMotion display's ability to ramp down the refresh rate for lower power consumption.
All four iPhone 14 models were announced by Apple last week and have been available to pre-order since September 9. The devices are set to launch on September 16, except for the iPhone 14 Plus, which will be available starting October 7.
