Reports Suggest iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max Models Experience Unexpected Battery Capacity Decline
Fresh concerns have arisen regarding Apple’s latest smartphone models, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, as foreign media outlets report an alarming decrease in their maximum battery capacity within a relatively short span of time.
Twitter and online communities are flooded with posts from users expressing dismay at battery capacities dropping as low as 9% and up to an alarming 14% for these devices.
While Apple officially states that iPhone batteries should retain up to 80% of their original capacity over 500 full charge cycles, users have reported substantial declines much earlier than anticipated. A frustrated user took to social media in July, exclaiming, “My iPhone 14 Pro’s maximum battery capacity is now at a mere 90%, and it’s deteriorating at an alarmingly rapid rate compared to my previous iPhone.” Wall Street Journal columnist Joanna Stern also shed light on this issue, revealing that the iPhone 14 Pro’s maximum battery capacity has purportedly declined to a worrisome 88%.
The exact cause behind this concerning battery capacity decline remains unknown. However, foreign media outlets speculate that it could potentially be attributed to several factors, including alterations to the numerical calculation algorithm of battery capacity, installation of iOS 17 beta software, or the use of Always-On Display (AOD) functionality.
It is crucial to note that as the maximum capacity number of the iPhone battery diminishes, so does the overall battery life. As of now, Apple has not issued an official statement addressing these battery concerns.
Foreign media reported on the 13th (local time) that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models, which have been released for less than a year, report a phenomenon where the maximum battery capacity decreases faster than expected.
According to reports, posts are afoot on Twitter and online communities that the maximum battery capacity of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max has dropped by as little as 9% and as much as 14%.
Officially, Apple says “iPhone batteries are designed to retain up to 80 percent of their original capacity over 500 full charge cycles when operating under normal conditions.”
However, in July, one user said, “The maximum capacity of the iPhone 14 Pro battery has dropped to 90%,” and “It’s dropping much faster than the previous iPhone.” Wall Street Journal columnist Joanna Stern also reported that the iPhone 14 Pro’s maximum battery capacity in use is said to have dropped to 88%.
The cause of the decrease in the maximum battery capacity is still unknown, but foreign media reported that it may be caused by ▲ a change in the numerical calculation algorithm of battery capacity ▲iOS 17 beta installation ▲AOD display.
The lower the maximum capacity number of the iPhone battery, the shorter the battery life. Apple has yet to make an official statement on the matter.
