The iPhone 14 arrived in store stocks, and from there to users who were not slow to publish the first autonomy tests, putting to the test the estimates published by Apple.
Coming on the heels of Apple’s ambiguous promises, the first spec-based data on the actual capacity of the installed batteries suggested only tiny increases in battery life, with more power-efficient hardware remaining to be seen.
Fortunately, the expectations of the fans were not completely disappointed, Apple managed to keep the autonomy shown in the iPhone 14 VS iPhone 13, respectively iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max comparison:
Thus, if the iPhone 13 Pro Max model from last year managed to deliver an autonomy of 9 hours and 52 minutes, the iPhone 14 Pro Max model offers an autonomy of 9 hours and 31 minutes, under the conditions of using a chipset with superior performance.
Possibly done with a different test method, the comparison between the iPhone 13 Pro Max and the alternative Galaxy S22 Ultra revealed a battery life of 10 hours and 27 minutes VS 8 hours and 8 minutes for the Samsung phone. By extrapolation, we can appreciate that the difference between the 14 Pro Max and the S22 Ultra is somewhat smaller, but consistently in favor of the Apple model.
