With a 5000 mAh battery, the iPhone 14 Pro Max would put an end to the battery dispute between Android and Apple

Tech Highlights:

  • What if the iPhone 14 Pro Max (coming out in September) had the same size battery as the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Pixel 6 Pro? Would it consistently last two full days on a single charge? Maybe even three days, depending on your usage? To answer this question, I’d have to do one of my “favorite” things in the world – maths, but also take a look at some of the iPhone 14 leaks and rumors we’ve seen so far, because numbers don’t tell the whole story here.

  • As you may be aware, the iPhone 13 Pro Max currently holds the title of best battery life among flagship smartphones. It easily outlasts everything Samsung, Google, OnePlus, Motorola, and Xiaomi have to offer, despite having relatively modest hardware (but better optimization). So, the fact that Apple doesn’t appear to be pushing “too hard” with more efficient chips (on paper) and larger batteries, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max is still in a league of its own in terms of battery life, made me wonder.

So, let’s hit the numbers, digits, signs, leaks, and everything in between, and see what a 5000 mAh cell would do to an iPhone 14 Pro Max’s battery life… For the record, it’s not confirmed that the iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature a 5000 mAh battery, but there are some leaked promises of big gains in this area, so let’s see… Apple in a battery league of its own: iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 mini battery life is miracaculous

Still, even now, the iPhone 13 Pro Max manages to outlast the Galaxy S22 Ultra by about 25% charge on average (what I mean is that it has 25% battery left when the Galaxy dies). If we compare the iPhone to the Pixel 6 Pro, we’ll see that Google’s most premium flagship delivers more or less 40% less battery life than Apple’s. Up to 40%. Not a typo. As a Pixel 6 Pro user, I confirm and… make a sad face. iPhone 13 Pro Max lasts 25% longer than the Galaxy S22 Ultra and 40% more than the Pixel 6 Pro.

Apple’s mini iPhone comes with maximum endurance. – iPhone 14 Pro Max with a 5000 mAh battery would be the end to the Android vs Apple battery debate Just to give those who aren’t familiar some perspective, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 4352 mAh cell. As far as the capacity is concerned, this is on the average side of the spectrum, considering that even mid-range Android phones feature bigger batteries. If iPhone 14 Pro Max gets a 5000 mAh battery, that would make it 15% larger in capacity compared to Apple’s current top flagship and would put it on par with the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Pixel 6 Pro.

And even if we assume that our own battery drain test and a dozen others on the internet don’t represent real-world use, as a Pixel 6 Pro user, I can confirm that battery life on Google’s 2021 flagship is mediocre. Especially for the size of the battery. This is exactly the opposite of what our friend and colleague Joshua Swingle is experiencing. He’s boasting left and right, telling everyone how incredible the battery life on his iPhone 13 Pro Max is, and… he’s got a good point. iPhone 13 mini’s battery life is on par with the Pixel 6 Pro’s – optimization sets Apple and Google far apart

In fact, if we put the iPhone 13 Pro Max topic aside for a moment, I can confirm that even the tiny iPhone 13 mini, which I’ve had the chance to use for the past few weeks, seems to be giving me more or less the same battery endurance as my Pixel 6 Pro. This is absolutely unfathomable but also makes sense when you remember that the biggest iPhone outlasts the Pixel by a whopping 40%.
