According to Apple, the iPhone 14 has the “longest battery life ever.”
iPhone 14 batteries cost:
The iPhone 14 battery replacement will cost you $30 more than prior generations (via 9to5Mac). According to Apple’s iPhone battery service page’s cost estimator, replacing the battery on any iPhone 14 model costs $99, a significant hike over the $69 pricing for previous generations (except for the iPhone SE, which has battery replacement priced at $49 across the board).
Apple has yet to publish the battery capacity in the iPhone 14, Plus, Pro, and Pro Max models, but it does boast that it boasts the company’s “longest battery life ever.” However, a filing on the hazardous materials database, Chemtrec, uncovered by 9to5Mac, gives us a hint of what to expect.
According to the filing, the iPhone 14 has a watt-hour capacity of 12.68Wh, compared to 12.41Wh on the iPhone 13. The watt-hour capacity of the Pro Max appears to be the same as that of its iPhone 13 predecessor, resting at 16.68Wh and 16.75Wh, respectively. With comparable numbers to the iPhone 13, it’s unclear what prompted the price increase. Apple did not react immediately to The Verge’s request for comment.
If you pre-ordered an iPhone 14, you probably won’t need to replace the battery anytime soon. Apple will only replace your battery under its AppleCare program if it is less than 80% of its original capacity, yet iPhone batteries are claimed as holding up to 80% of their original capacity after 500 full charge cycles. The $99 repair fee applies only if the repair is required outside of Apple’s one-year guarantee, which is included with the majority of its products. AppleCare Plus, which just began giving unlimited repairs, also covers battery replacements.
