The new iPhone 14 Pro Max, which will hit customers’ hands on Friday, lasts two hours longer than last year’s precious, the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This is according to a battery test conducted by Tom’s Guide. The testing is designed to reflect real-life usage.
In its review of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, Tom’s Guide said that the iPhone 14 Pro Max lasted an average 14 of hours and 42 minutes on a single full charge. The iPhone 13 Pro Max lasted 12 hours and 16 minutes.
Tom’s Guide’s testing found that the iPhone 14 Pro Max drained a mere 30% in 5 hours while downloading apps, listening to music, and taking pictures and videos.
Anecdotally, the iPhone 14 Pro Max fared quite well in terms of endurance. After charging close to 90% and then using the phone from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. for downloading apps, playing music and shooting photos and videos, the phone’s battery only dropped to 60%.
On Tom’s Guide’s ranking of battery life in smartphones, the iPhone 14 Pro Max now ranks in 2nd place after the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro, which provided power for around 15 hours and 30 minutes.
Tom’s Guide’S charging test results fall a bit short of Apple’s claim that the iPhone 14 Pro Max can charge up to 50% in less than 30 minutes. Tests showed the new iPhone only charged to 42% from 0% in half an hour.
