iPhone 14 Battery Deteriorating Faster Than Expected?
The release of the iPhone 14 series just last September has already raised concerns among users about battery health. Just like any smartphone, over time and with regular usage, the battery health of iPhones naturally declines. However, it seems that the iPhone 14 series is experiencing a more rapid deterioration than expected, with users reporting significant drops in battery health within just a year of usage.
User Andrew Clear conducted a comparison of battery health between the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro on social media platforms. He found that after nearly two years, the battery health of the iPhone 13 Pro remained at 85%, while the battery health of the iPhone 14 Pro had dropped to as low as 90% within just a year. Other iPhone users, such as Michael Lee and MilesAboveTech, shared similar experiences of rapid battery health decline within a relatively short period for their iPhone 14 series devices.
Apple has not provided any official statement regarding the battery health concerns related to the iPhone 14 series so far. Typically, Apple acknowledges that the capacity of lithium-ion batteries, like those used in iPhones, diminishes slightly with each full charge cycle. They claim that their batteries are designed to retain at least 80% of their original capacity for a significant number of charge cycles.
To check the battery status of an iPhone, users can go to the Settings app, click on Battery, and then navigate to Battery Health and Charging. This will display information about the battery’s capacity, peak performance, and whether it needs servicing.
It’s important to note that this information provides a generalized overview of the issue and awaits more detailed insights from Apple. Users are encouraged to monitor their iPhone’s battery health and seek guidance from Apple’s support page for more specific guidance on monitoring battery health and optimizing battery performance and longevity.
