Another attack of the battery vampires

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro fanboys are finding that their expensive toys are already failing, with batteries being degraded much faster than expected.

Apple has a history of poor battery life on its iPhones which coincidently start to fail around the time that Jobs Mob would like you to upgrade.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pros have been around for less than a year so even by Apple’s standard that is grim.

Sam Kohl of AppleTrack tweeted in July that his iPhone 14 Pro had already dropped to a maximum capacity of 90 per cent, a much faster drop off than previous iPhones he'd owned, and the thread shows many other people with the same experience.

Kohl followed up with a video posted yesterday about the issue, saying it makes it hard for him to recommend the phone, especially considering it had a $1000 price tag.

Officially, Apple says iPhone batteries should "retain up to 80 per cent of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles." However, it does mention that the iPhone 15 series is expected to launch soon.

Other Apple fanboys moaned that their iPhone 14 Pros were showing betten 88 per cent battery capacity and 93 per cent. In previous years, most haven't seen a drop in reported capacity until two years of use, at least.
