iPhone 14 Models Offer an Additional Hour of Battery Life

With the iPhone 14 series, Apple mentioned larger batteries that last for a longer period of time, but the company did not go into detail about the increases that we can expect. As it turns out, all of the ‌iPhone 14‌ models do offer longer battery life, coming in at right around an hour of improvement with direct comparisons to prior-generation iPhone 13 models.

iphone 14 models
The ‌iPhone 14‌ lasts for up to 20 hours for video playback, up to 16 hours for streaming video playback, and up to 80 hours for audio playback. The ‌iPhone 13‌ lasted for 19 hours for video playback, 15 hours for streaming video playback, and 75 hours for audio playback.

The iPhone 14 Pro lasts for up to 23 hours when watching videos (up from 22), up to 20 hours for streaming video (no improvement) and up to 75 hours for audio playback (no improvement).

The ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max lasts for up to 29 hours when watching videos (up from 28 hours), up to 25 hours for streaming video (no improvement), and up to 95 hours for audio playback (no improvement).

There is no direct comparison for the ‌iPhone 14‌ Plus because it is a new size, but it lasts for up to 26 hours for video playback, up to 20 hours for streaming video playback, and up to 100 hours for audio playback. It falls right in between the ‌iPhone 14‌ and the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max, and has the longest audio playback length.

All four iPhones are fast charge capable and can charge to 50 percent in 30 to 35 minutes with a 20W or higher power adapter.

But still uses the horrible useless lightning port. So crazy stupid. USB-C would have made wonders. Sad.

Nice to see added battery time, will always take that.

Oh, don't be sad, there's been rumors for several years now that the less durable and slightly larger USB-C connector is coming next year (iPhone 15).
A "Pro" device needs faster connectivity than USB 2.0 in 2022.

I'll take it. Was surprised to see it on 4nm process node when all the rumors seemed to be suggesting it was going to stay on 5nm. This probably helps the efficiency so the display can get even brighter, the display can always stay on, and the battery life still increased. Pretty wild. Won't be long until we're on 3nm and then 2nm and then Moore's law starts coming apart at the seams, lol.

I didn't see any mention of the rumored 30W charging support, was that a quiet footnote anywhere?
