When new iPhones see the light, the subject of the battery always generates a special interest, and with the iPhone 14 has not been the exception. Especially among those people who depend too much on their terminal on a day-to-day basis. Apple, of course, usually promotes the autonomy of a new generation as the most durable of all, although during the presentation it rarely goes into specific numbers. In fact, we still do not know the battery capacity of the iPhone 14. This information is usually known until specialized websites disassemble the device.
Despite the above, now that the official sites of the iPhone 14 are already active, it is possible to know additional data about their autonomy. With the latter at hand, it is now possible compare them with previous generation models. Consider, however, that the numbers may vary too much depending on the tasks you perform on your device. Also, do not forget that these types of figures are obtained through tests in controlled environments.
The iPhone 14 does improve the battery of its predecessors, but the difference varies depending on the model being analyzed. For example, this year Apple has brought back the Plus variant on standard iPhones. By having a larger body, the company had more space to integrate a larger battery. It’s why the iPhone 14 Plus, compared to the iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone 12, and iPhone 11, comes out ahead by a wide margin.
|iPhone 14 Plus||iPhone 14||iPhone 13||iPhone 12||iPhone 11|
|Autonomy in video playback||26 hours||20 hours||19 hours||17 hours||18 hours|
|Autonomy in audio playback||100 hours||80 hours||75 hours||65 hours||65 hours|
This obvious disparity is not reflected in the same way with the iPhone 14 Pro, since its immediate predecessors, the iPhone 13 Pro, had almost the same measurements.
|iPhone 14 Pro||iPhone 13 Pro|
|iPhone 14 ProMax||iPhone 13 ProMax|
Internally, moreover, there was no significant rearrangement of components to free up space for the battery. Now, if the comparison is made with the older iPhone, there you will notice a greater difference. You can see it below:
|iPhone 14 Pro||iPhone 13 Pro||iPhone 12 Pro||iPhone 11 Pro|
|Autonomy in video playback||23 hours||22 hours||17 hours||18 hours|
|Autonomy in audio playback||75 hours||75 hours||65 hours||65 hours|
|iPhone 14 Pro Max||iPhone 13 Pro Max||iPhone 12 Pro Max||iPhone 11 Pro Max|
|Autonomy in video playback||29 hours||28 hours||20 hours||20 hours|
|Autonomy in audio playback||95 hours||95 hours||80 hours||80 hours|
These comparisons allow us to draw a couple of important conclusions. First, if you have an iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro, and are considering upgrading your device, consider that the increase in autonomy will be barely noticeable. On the contrary, if you are going to make the jump from an older model, you will undoubtedly notice a difference. Even more so because your mobile phone, due to the years it has been in use, reduced the useful life of its battery and a full charge no longer lasts as long as when it was just released.
In the particular case of the iPhone 14, the Plus model is the ideal for those people who, in addition to wanting a larger screen without breaking the wallet for the Pro Max, need autonomy that lasts longer.
