As with the generations before them, we’re, quite rightly, expecting the iPhone 14 variants to all be upgrades, or at least have a combination of upgraded and identical specs. However, according to a new leak, it looks like the battery on the iPhone 14 Pro Max might actually be worse…
According to leaker ShrimpApplePro (opens in new tab) the iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with a 4,323mAh battery - which would be a downgrade to the 4,352mAh battery in the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Capacity wise 4,323mAh compared to 4,352mAh isn’t a big drop and in truth probably won’t be noticeable in day-to-day life but it’s a step in the wrong direction and seems a bit of an odd move by Apple.
Battery capacity for iPhone 14 variants
ShrimpApplePro (opens in new tab) also leaked alleged capacities of the other iPhone 14 variants. The standard iPhone 14 is said to have a 3,279mAh battery – up from 3,240mAh in the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14 Pro battery is said to be 3,200mAh – up from 3,095mAh in the iPhone 13 Pro. This leaves the new iPhone 14 Max with its alleged 4,325mAh battery as the only model to feature a downgrade.
There’s no way of knowing if this leak is accurate or not, but if it is we are still expecting the iPhone 14 Max to be one of the best smartphones on the market when it launches. Furthermore, we are only talking about a slight download on the battery in the iPhone 13 Max, which has proved to have excellent battery life.
