Here's how long all four iPhones last, depending on battery life ...

If you upgrade to one of Apple''s new iPhones, you''ll definitely want to know the iPhone 14 battery life, and the results vary quite a bit depending on the model. However, each phone is evaluated using our own testing to determine which handset is functional to make our best phone battery life list.

Apple doesn''t reveal the battery sizes for its phones, but they have been investigated based on teardowns of the new phones and regulation filings. So we''ve included those below as well as the runtime for each handset. You''ll also find the battery test results for comparable phones in a sense.

Results of the iPhone 14 battery life: All four models are compared.

iPhone 14 battery life

In our battery test, the regular iPhone 14 took a good but unspectacular 9 hours and 28 minutes. We believe anything above 11.5 hours is worth it.

Apple''s 6.1-inch smartphone has a relatively small 3,279 mAh battery, but it outperforms the Galaxy S22''s larger 3,700 mAh battery, which was turned in a runtime of 8:02.

The Google Pixel 7 was beaten for a very low average of 7 hours and 14 minutes, and the iPhone 14 was rated as the most popular smartphone in terms of battery life.

iPhone 14 Plus battery life

This is where things get really interesting. Apple ditched the iPhone mini model in its lineup this year for the iPhone 14 Plus, and it turns out to be a great choice for those looking for a big screen at a reduced cost and long battery life.

The iPhone 14 Plus, which has a 4,325 mAh battery, have surfed the web for an excellent 11 hours and 57 minutes. That''s great for our best phone battery list and significantly higher than the Galaxy S22 Plus, who has a 4,500 mAh battery. So you''re getting 1.5 hours more endurance over Samsung''s comparably-sized phone.

The Pixel 7 Pro isn''t quite close as it averaged a meager 7:54 in five battery tests, and that''s with a 5,000 mAh battery.

iPhone 14 Pro battery life

The iPhone 14 Pro''s 3,200 mAh battery took 10 hours and 13 minutes to drain, compared to 9:28 for the regular iPhone 14 and its 3,279 mAh battery.

Now, you might wonder why the iPhone 14 Pro lasted longer than the regular iPhone 14 when they had the same resolution and the iPhone 14 Pro has a slightly smaller battery (likely owning to its larger camera system).

First, the iPhone 14 Pro has a more powerful 4nm A16 Bionic processor, while the iPhone 14 has an older A15 Bionic chip. And the iPhone 14 Pro can dynamically increase its screen refresh rate from 120Hz to 1Hz, while the iPhone 14 maintains its 60Hz rate. Dropping down to 1Hz when the screen action is static can reduce battery life.

iPhone 14 Pro Max battery life

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is absolutely the best when it comes to battery life. Its 4,323 mAh battery averaged 13 hours and 39 minutes, beating the 10:18 runtime of the Galaxy S22 Ultra''s 5,000 mAh battery by more than three hours.

This 6.7-inch iPhone should take you through a day of use, if not more, without having to be charged. It even outlasts the similar iPhone 14 Plus by 1.5 hours.

Bottom line

The iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max are both powerful staying power, especially for their largeness, but the two 6.7-inch iPhones are the way to go if you want to leave the charger behind.

When it comes to battery life, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is rolled around around the most appropriate competitors from Samsung and Google.
