The design changes of Apple’s iPhone 14 leaks months ago, but speculation surrounding its performance proved much more controversial. And now a new leak has caused the comments to revolve around battery life.
Shared by Shrimp ApplePro, an industry member, a new Baidu post revealed what the battery capabilities could be for all iPhone 14 models. This is the first time the capabilities have been reported for the new line and although three models have received small battery increases, a fall on the iPhone 14 Pro may mean that your money is better spent elsewhere.
iPhone 14 leaks decompose the battery capacities as follows:
iPhone 14 – 3,279 mAh (iPhone 13 – 3,227 mAh)
iPhone 14 Max – 4325 mAh (N/A)
iPhone 14 Pro – 3,200 mAh (iPhone 13 Pro – 3,095 mAh)
iPhone 14 Pro Max – 4,323 mAh (iPhone 3 Pro Max – 4,352 mAh)
The big news comes from the big phones and, if those numbers are correct, there’s every chance the new iPhone 14 Max will outlast the iPhone 14 Pro Max flagship.
The reason for this is not the fractional difference in their battery capacities, but what they will be asked to do. iPhone 14 Pro models will have 48-megapixel sensors, meaning they will process 4x file sizes larger than the 12MP sensor retained by standard models. They should also have more RAM, which means higher performance but higher battery consumption.
It is not yet known whether the new efficiencies of the Exclusive A16 Pro chipset and the new DDR5 RAM can make up for it, but with the iPhone 14 Max expected to cost $300 less, it may be a tempting drawdown for those concerned about the price increases of the iPhone 14 Pro. The iPhone 14 Max is also a dramatic improvement over its predecessor, the iPhone 13 Mini (2,406 mAh), for which battery life was its biggest disadvantage.
Looking more broadly, the small drum increases for the rest of the range are also amazing. After being overshadowed by large Android phones for several generations, the iPhone 13 line was a big leap ahead and there was hope that Apple would seek to extend its lead over the competition, having seen the success of its M1-based MacBooks ahead of battery life. delivered by rivals based on Intel and AMD.
That strategy would certainly be a gamble. Since the launch of the iPhone 6 Plus in 2014, Apple’s largest and most expensive model has always had the best battery life. This now seems to be under serious threat and makes the iPhone 14 Max much more attractive. Plus, with Pro models set to abandon Lightning for USB-C in 2023, skipping iPhone 14 Pro models in 2022 may be the smartest option.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro Models Key Specifications Revealed
Apple is reportedly going to unveil the iPhone 14 series smartphones this year in September. The company hasn’t confirmed the launch date of this flagship lineup which is likely going to include the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Recently a report has arrived that suggests the key details such as the specifications of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Both the Pro variants are tipped to come with major design changes.
The report adds that the notch will be replaced by a pill-shaped cutout for the FaceID and a punch-hole cutout for the front camera sensor. However, the base iPhone 14 model and the iPhone 14 Max model will come with the same notch that is found in the existing iPhone 13 models.
the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are tipped to come with an Always On Display feature and this ability will only be available in the iPhone 14 Pro models.
On the camera front, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will house a triple camera setup on the back which is tipped to be bigger than its predecessor. Both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max smartphones will pack bigger batteries than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The company will reportedly include support for 20 W fast charging in both devices.
