When a new phone model comes out, we expect it to be an upgrade, and that’s certainly the case with iPhones, as each new model often has some combination of improved and identical specs. But with the iPhone 14 Pro Max, at least one spec might be a little worse.
According to the leaker ShrimpApplePro (opens in new tab), the phone has a 4,323mAh battery, which would be a slight downgrade from the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s 4,352mAh battery. It’s a small enough difference that it’s unlikely to have much of an impact on life, but it’s definitely a shift in the wrong direction.
The source also revealed the possible capabilities of the other iPhone 14 models, with the standard iPhone 14 apparently having a 3,279mAh battery (up from 3,240mAh in the iPhone 13), the iPhone 14 Pro being listed at 3,200mAh (up from 3,095) . mAh on the iPhone 13 Pro), and the new iPhone 14 Max reportedly with 4,325mAh.

So it’s not all bad news on the battery front, with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro apparently getting a little bigger, of which the Pro’s boost is the biggest.
The iPhone 14 Max could be the battery champion as, according to this leak, it has the biggest battery ever. Its capacity is reportedly only 2mAh larger than that of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but with the iPhone 14 Max likely to have a lower 60Hz refresh rate, it probably won’t have as much battery life as Apple’s flagship flagship.
All that said, we would take this with a pinch of salt. The source could be wrong, especially as they say these specs have not been confirmed. Also, a much earlier leak suggested that all models would be getting a bigger battery than their predecessors.
Review: You probably won’t have to worry about your iPhone 14 Pro Max’s battery life
Even if this leak is accurate, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will likely have very good battery life as the downgrade is only minor, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max is the longest-lasting iPhone so far.
Indeed, for our review, we found the battery life to be among the best we’ve seen on a modern flagship phone.
So if the iPhone 14 Pro Max has slightly worse battery life, it will likely still have more endurance than the average flagship. Also, your life might not be worse anyway, as your chipset might be more efficient and Apple might have made other optimizations.
So while we were – and still are – hoping that Apple would deliver a phone with really great battery life, even if it doesn’t, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is unlikely to particularly disappoint – in fact, it will likely be one of the best. smartphones.
