Battery size to increase on iPhone 14 Pro models, Apple focusing on eSIM


  • iPhone 14 series will get bigger batteries for the second time in a row
  • iPhone 14 reported to have a 3,279 mAh battery

Apple is expected to reveal its iPhone 14 series on September 14. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports in his Power On newsletter that the iPhone 14 Pro models will come with bigger batteries. This would be Apple’s second consecutive year of increasing battery capacity while improving processor performance. Also, it appears that the company will use eSIM right from the box instead of physical SIM cards.

iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max

The iPhone 14 series will get bigger batteries for the second time in a row, according to 9to5Mac. ShrimpApplePro, who’s always able to find rumours about new Apple releases on Chinese social media, shared a post in June that confirmed the size of the battery of the new regular and pro iPhones.

In a Baidu post, the iPhone 14 was reported to have a 3,279 mAh battery, compared to the iPhone 13, which had a 3,227 mAh battery. A 3,200 mAh battery could power the 14 Pro, compared to a 3,095 mAh battery in the 13 Pro. Compared to the 13 Pro Max with 4,352 mAh, the 14 Pro Max would have a slightly smaller battery, with 4,323 mAh.

Gurman doesn’t mention the regular iPhone 14 models, but it would be interesting if he happens to be right about the Pro models getting a bigger battery – something users always want.

Gurman summarised what he expects Apple to introduce with these new iPhones in his last newsletter before the event. According to him, the iPhone 14 models will only get “some camera hardware changes”. He also discusses Apple’s push for eSIM technology. It’s unclear whether Apple will ditch the physical SIM card slot on the iPhone 14 line, despite rumour that it would. Speaking about the same, he said, “And Apple will give eSIM a bigger push this time around, with carriers preparing to steer users toward the digital, embedded SIM cards rather than physical ones. In fact, Apple has considered removing the physical SIM card slot altogether beginning either this year or next for some models,”
