iPhone 14 Pro battery specifications

The iPhone 14 Pro has a 3200 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery. It supports high-speed charging up to 20 watts, but Apple doesn’t include a charging brick in the box. Only a USB-C to Lightning charging cable is provided.

The iPhone 14 Pro supports 15 watts of wireless charging via MagSafe. However, if you use a standard Qi wireless charger, you can only charge it at 7.5 watts.

iPhone 14 Pro’s battery life according to Apple

Apple’s advertised iPhone 14 Pro battery duration

According to Apple’s official website, the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery can last as follows:

  • Video playback for up to 23 hours.
  • Video playback (streamed): up to 20 hours
  • Audio playback: up to 75 hours

As written in fine print number 13 on apple.com, your iPhone 14 Pro’s network configuration is just one of many variables that could affect how long it lasts on a charge. Therefore, each iPhone 14 Pro user’s experience with the battery may be different.

Apple’s advertised iPhone 14 Pro battery performance

According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes when using a 20W adapter or higher. 

On their website, Apple states in fine print that the 30-minute fast charge test was performed using the following:

  • An original Apple USB C 20W adapter with model number A2305.
  • A pre-production iPhone 14 Pro unit running a pre-production iOS version.

According to Apple, the charge time of your iPhone 14 Pro may vary based on the phone’s settings and the environment in which you use it.

DXOMARK’s iPhone 14 Pro battery test setup

Using their cutting-edge battery testing facility in France, DXOMARK conducted a thorough battery charging test on the iPhone 14 Pro. 

Unlike Apple, DXOMARK is very transparent about how they conduct their smartphone battery life tests (you can read more about it here). Below are the settings they used:

  • The phone’s 5G connectivity was turned off (only 4G was allowed).
  • Its display brightness was set to 200 cd/m2.
  • The phone’s speaker volume level was set to 60 dB.
  • Ambient lighting conditions were controlled by robots for various scenarios.
  • The phone’s display was permanently set to 60 Hz.

DXOMARK’s Setup for Stationary Tests (Office or Home Use)

During the stationary tests, the iPhone 14 Pro was placed in a Faraday cage. The Faraday cage is built with 2 mm thick steel panels to isolate it from external networks and other disturbances.

Inside the Faraday cage, a WiFi access point and cellular repeater provide stable connectivity.

All the tasks are carried out by robots that are programmed to interact with smartphones using the same touch gestures as humans. That is scrolling, swiping, and tapping.

Each robot is equipped with a lighting system that can be modified to look like the ambient light found at home, outside, and at work. You can read more about their stationary test settings here.

DXOMARK’s Setup for on-the-go tests

During the on-the-go tests, humans carried the test iPhone 14 Pro through a predefined route. 

They performed the kinds of activities that people often do when commuting on public transport, such as GPS navigation, streaming music, taking pictures, taking videos, etc. You can read more about their on the go tests here

DXOMARK’s iPhone 14 Pro battery drain observations

iPhone 14 Pro’s Home/Office usage battery duration

The home/office test mimics a typical scenario of how people may use their iPhone 14 Pro at home or at work.

To begin the test, a fully charged iPhone 14 Pro is placed in a faraday cage. After that, a robot carries out a series of touch-based user interactions, including making calls and streaming video, among other things.

Over the course of a 16-hour period, the robot engages with the phone for about 4 hours. That corresponds to a person using their iPhone moderately for 4 hours out of a possible 16-hour day.

Following that, the test iPhone 14 Pro is not used for 8 hours to mimic a scenario where someone might not use their phone overnight while sleeping for approximately 8 hours.

The robot repeats this 4-hour usage each day until the phone runs out of battery. During one test run, the iPhone 14 Pro lasted three nights of 8 hours each, two days of 16 hours each, and almost a quarter of a day (3 hours). 

That makes a total of 59 hours of use before switching off due to low battery.

iPhone 14 Pro’s on-the-go battery usage duration

Smartphones constantly look for cellular signals when they are moving. But testing a smartphone’s battery life in a stationary location doesn’t take that into account. 

So DXOMARK also runs a battery test outside that simulates how people may use their iPhone 14 Pro during their daily commute. 

This test demonstrated how quickly different apps or activities can deplete the battery of the iPhone 14 Pro while on the go. They obtained the following results:

DXOMARK’s iPhone 14 Pro battery charge observations

One essential part of a smartphone’s battery life is its charging performance. Knowing how fast you can charge your iPhone 14 Pro is important, especially for heavy users.

DXOMARK’s battery charging tests on the iPhone 14 Pro give some idea of how quickly it can charge through wired and wireless connections. 

They ran the wireless charging tests on the iPhone 14 Pro using a 15-watt MagSafe wireless charger. And for the wired tests, they used a 20-watt charger. Here’s what they found out:

iPhone 14 Pro’s wired charging speed

When plugged into a 20-watt wired charger, the iPhone 14 Pro charged from 0 to 56% in 30 minutes. It took 52 minutes to reach the 80% charge indicator mark. To get to full charge, it took a total of 1 hour and 55 minutes.

DXOMARK also determined that a 5-minute, 20-watt wired charge gives the iPhone 14 Pro up to 3 hours and 11 minutes of use time. The table below shows how well the iPhone 14 Pro competes against a few other flagships:

Phone modelBattery CapacityWired charging time (0 to 100%)
Apple iPhone 14 Pro3200 mAh1 hour 55 minutes
Apple iPhone 13 Pro3095 mAh1 hour 43 minutes
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra5000 mAh1 hour 24 minutes
Oppo Find X5 Pro5000 mAh41 minutes
iPhone 14 pro wired charging time versus other flagship smartphones

iPhone 14 Pro’s wireless charging speed

When charging the phone wirelessly with a 15 W MagSafe charger, the iPhone 14 Pro went from 0 to 36% in 30 minutes. To get to the 80% charge mark, it took 1 hour, 28 minutes. And for a full charge, a total of 2 hours and 19 minutes were required.

DXOMARK’S iPhone 14 Pro battery Efficiency observations

iPhone 14 Pro’s Charge up efficiency

DXOMARK says the overall efficiency of a full charge on a smartphone is related to how much energy is required to fill up its battery versus how much energy the battery can provide when it’s completely full.

With that in mind, they used four main factors to calculate a charge-up efficiency score for the iPhone 14 Pro.

  1. How much energy the phone’s battery can provide on a full charge.
  2. How efficiently the travel adapter can transfer power from an outlet to the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery.
  3. How much power the iPhone keeps drawing from its charger after it is fully charged but still plugged in.
  4. How fast the battery drains when the iPhone is disconnected from its charger.

Using the four factors mentioned above, they were able to calculate the iPhone 14 Pro’s overall efficiency at 65%. Here’s how it compares to other flagship smartphones:

Phone modelBattery CapacityCharge-up efficiency (%)
Apple iPhone 14 Pro3200 mAh65%
Apple iPhone 13 Pro3095 mAh68%
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra5000 mAh79%
Oppo Find X5 Pro5000 mAh82%
Phone model versus charge up efficiency percent (higher is better)

  • iPhone 14 Pro has a charge up efficiency of 65%.
  • The iPhone 13 Pro has a charge up efficiency of 68%. 
  • The Galaxy S22 Ultra has a charge up efficiency of 79%.
  • The Oppo Find X5 Pro has a charge up efficiency of 82%.

iPhone 14 Pro’s Discharge efficiency

Of course, we couldn’t talk about the iPhone 14 Pro’s charge-up efficiency without also looking at its discharge efficiency.

A phone’s discharge efficiency is quite important because it’s easily noticeable by the user. A phone that has a low average battery current discharge is likely to be well optimized and have a long standby time.

The rate at which a phone’s battery drains during a battery consumption test is used by DXOMARK to determine how efficiently the battery discharges.

Their analysis showed that the average discharge current for the iPhone 14 Pro was 122 mAh. That score was enough to make it take first place as the phone with the lowest discharge current. 

Here’s how a few other flagships compare to the iPhone 14 Pro in terms of discharge efficiency.

Phone modelBattery CapacityAverage current discharge during use
Apple iPhone 14 Pro3200 mAh122 mAh
Apple iPhone 13 Pro3095 mAh125 mAh
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra5000 mAh206 mAh
Oppo Find X5 Pro5000 mAh211 mAh
Phone model versus average current discharge rate (lower is better)

iPhone 14 Pro’s annual energy consumption

Using data obtained from the iPhone 14 Pro’s overall efficiency during a charge cycle and when in use, DXOMARK was able to calculate the annual consumption of the iPhone 14 Pro to be 3.4 KWh. Please see the image below.

MrWhosetheboss iPhone 14 Pro battery drain observations

iPhone 14 Pro’s screen on time

MrWhosetheboss, a reliable tech YouTube channel, conducted a simple battery drain test on the iPhone 14 series.

To begin, he charged all the phones to their maximum capacity. Then he ran the same set of applications simultaneously on each phone until the batteries were depleted and the phones went off.

MrWhosetheboss’ settings for the screen-on time battery test:

  1. All the phones were brand new.
  2. He set all the phones to an equivalent level of brightness (about 80% brightness).

Note that he didn’t quite mention what version of iOS his iPhones were running. But since he released his video not too far from the launch time of the iPhone 14, one can suggest that it was running one of the earliest versions of iOS 16.

Results

The iPhone 14 Pro was able to put in an impressive 7 hours, 49 minutes of screen-on time. The table below shows how the iPhone 14 Pro competes against other iPhone 14 models in MrWhosetheboss’s battery life test.

iPhone ModelBattery CapacityScreen-On time
iPhone 14 Pro3200 mAh7 hours 49 minutes

iPhone 122815 mAh6 hours 48 minutes
iPhone SE (2022)2018 mAh4 hours 52 minutes
Phone model and battery capacity versus screen-on time

At the time of testing, the iPhone 14 Plus wasn’t yet launched. So, MrWhosetheboss estimated that the iPhone 14 Plus could last around 9 hours 23 minutes on a similar battery life test.

His estimate was based on Apple’s statement that the 14 Plus has an extra 30% battery life over the iPhone 14.

iPhone 14 Pro’s screen-on time on a later iOS version

About two months later, another tech YouTube channel named Darious K ran a similar iPhone 14 battery life test to the one conducted by MrWhosetheboss.

It’s worth noting that Darious K’s iPhones were running a newer version of iOS 16. We believe that the iOS 16 update brought battery life improvements to the iPhone 14 series.

Darious’s settings for the screen-on time battery test:

  1. Wifi, bluetooth and GPS were enabled.
  2. There was no sim card in either of the phones.
  3. The display brightness on all the phones was set to the same level.
  4. The always on display setting on the pro models was kept on.

Results

In Darious’ test, the iPhone 14 Pro delivered an impressive 8 hours 33 minutes of screen-on time. The table below shows how well it competes with other iPhone 14 models in Darious’s test.

Conclusion

With a 3200 mAh battery capacity, the iPhone 14 Pro doesn’t look like it can compete in the battery life department against similarly priced flagship smartphones. However, the iPhone 14 Pro has an overall good battery life.

Apple has optimized its software and processor to run as efficiently as possible. When the iPhone 14 Pro is compared to other high-end smartphones with even bigger batteries, the effects of this optimization become apparent.

According to DXOMARK’s detailed test results, the iPhone 14 Pro can last an average of 2 days 5 hours (or 54 hours), when used moderately (about 4 hours per day).

They also found that the iPhone 14 Pro can last up to 78 hours if actively used for a maximum of 2 hours 30 minutes per day (light usage). 

A heavy user who actively uses his iPhone 14 Pro for at least 7 hours per day can get up to 33 hours of battery life before the phone shuts off due to low battery.

iPhone 14 Pro battery life Pros

As shown in the table below, the iPhone 14 Pro holds its ground against four other flagships renowned for their gigantic batteries. These results were obtained after rigorous testing by DXOMARK.

iPhone 14 Pro battery consumption versus other flagships

Due to its excellent optimization, the iPhone 14 Pro excels in use cases like GPS navigation and social media app browsing despite having a small 3200 mAh battery. It even beats phones with larger batteries like the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Oppo Find X5 in this domain. The iPhone 14 Pro also has a decent performance when streaming video and music.

We acknowledge that the iPhone 14 Pro also has a smaller display when compared to the previously mentioned Android flagships. But still, it’s quite amazing that such a small battery can deliver 7 to 8 hours of screen-on time on average.

As a result of its low battery current discharge, the iPhone 14 Pro also has an impressive standby time. DXOMARK found that the phone lost only about 1.33% of its battery per night.

iPhone 14 Pro battery life Cons

The most notable con of the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery life is how long it takes to charge. For such a small battery, one may expect that the phone will charge a lot faster. 

However, the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery needs at least 2 hours and 19 minutes to reach 100% charge. And for that, you would need a 20-watt charging brick (not included in the box) and an authentic USB-C to Lightning cable.

The reason why the phone charges so slowly is because it only supports a maximum of 20 watts of charging power. Similarly, the autonomy recovered from a 5-minute charge of the iPhone 14 Pro is only about 3 hours.

Gaming and camera apps will quickly drain the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery. So users must carefully manage how often they use such apps while on the go. 

Gaming apps could completely drain the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery in just 7 hours, 38 minutes, according to tests performed by DXOMARK.

Meanwhile, the phone’s power-hungry camera app can drain its battery dry within just 3 hours and 29 minutes.

Why is my iPhone 14 Pro battery draining so fast?

There are several reasons why your iPhone 14 Pro’s battery could be draining fast. Some of them could be caused by your software settings. Those ones are very easy to solve. But sometimes the battery itself could be defective. 

Below is a list of things to check if you discover that your iPhone 14 Pro’s battery is draining fast.

  • Check your iPhone battery usage. If you notice that your iPhone gets hot and its battery drains fast, one thing you can do is open the battery usage settings to check which application or activity is draining your battery. To check it, go to settings > battery then scroll down and check battery usage by app.
  • You may be using it in extreme ambient temperatures. According to Apple, your iPhone battery will work best in temperatures ranging between 0 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees Celsius.
  • Your iPhone’s battery may be overheating. Check your iPhone to see if any apps or maybe charging may be causing it to overheat and hinder battery performance.
  • You may be using power intensive apps. Some applications like GPS, and graphic intensive video games can deplete your iPhone battery in a short time.
  • Your iPhone battery’s health may be low, indicating that the battery is degrading chemically. To check your iPhone’s battery health, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health. If it indicates anything other than Peak Performance Capability, then it may be time to replace your iPhone battery.
  • Reduce your display’s brightness. A bright display will quickly drain your iPhone’s battery. It’s good to keep your screen as dim as your eyes can handle. To access your brightness controls, open the control brightness menu and pull down the brightness slider. You may also disable the iPhone’s auto-brightness setting.
  • Disable location services. Many iPhone apps frequently access your iPhone’s GPS services to know your location. This can quickly drain your phone’s battery over time. To disable it, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and then toggle it off.
  • Clear all your background apps. Sometimes, just quitting a power-intensive app may not be enough to stop it from draining your iPhone battery. If you don’t intend to use the app anytime soon after quitting it, it is recommended to completely clear it from your phone memory. Keeping multiple apps running in the background may drain your iPhone’s battery faster.
  • Check your iPhone battery usage. If you notice that your iPhone gets hot and its battery drains fast, one thing you can do is open the battery usage settings to check which application or activity is draining your battery.

Is the iPhone 14 Pro battery better than the 13 Pro?

The iPhone 14 Pro has a slightly larger 3200 mAh battery than the iPhone 13 Pro’s 3095 mAh battery. 

Also, the 4nm A16 Bionic chipset in the iPhone 14 Pro runs slightly more efficiently than the iPhone 13 Pro’s 5nm A15 Bionic chip.

DXOMARK’s battery life test revealed that the iPhone 14 Pro can last up to 2 days 6 hours with moderate use. The same test performed on the iPhone 13 Pro showed that the phone can last an average of 2 days 5 hours.

So it’s safe to say that the iPhone 14 Pro has a slightly better battery life than the iPhone 13 Pro. Future iOS updates on the iPhone 14 Pro may optimize the phone even more and further improve its battery life.

Where’s the battery percentage on the iPhone 14 Pro?

iPhone 14 battery life

The MrWhosetheboss YouTube Channel put the iPhone 14 Pro through a “Screen-On” time battery test. During his test, it took 7 hours and 49 minutes to completely deplete the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery. He performed activities such as gaming, streaming video, and browsing the internet. His iPhone 14 was running an early release version of iOS 16.

Another YouTube channel named Darius K performed a similar “Screen-On” time battery test and obtained slightly different results. His own iPhone 14 Pro lasted for 8 hours and 33 minutes. The iPhone he used for this battery test was running a later version of iOS 16 than the one in MrWhosetheboss’s test.

How to improve/keep your iPhone 14 Pro’s battery healthy

You can’t stop your iPhone’s battery health from depleting below the 100% mark. That’s because the iPhone uses a lithium Ion battery which chemically degrades with time. That’s called normal battery wear.

However, there are certain things that you can do to slow down your iPhone’s battery degradation.

  • Use a good quality charger or the original iPhone charger sold by Apple.
  • Keep your iPhone at room temperature (around 24 degrees celcius) as much as possible.
  • Don’t over charge your iPhone. If you charge your iPhone every night while sleeping, it’s recommended to enable the “Optimized Battery Charging” Setting. You can find this setting by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Health & Charging > Optimized Battery Charging.
