Baffling right especially for a phone that's only 3 months old! Apple support (both in store and over the phone) gave me the usual spiel of 'your battery has passed diagnostics and has over 80% capacity (currently 98% according to iOS), so there's nothing we can do'.Something is very wrong here. How’s your charger cycle only 32 and your battery capacity is less than 93%?

I even offered to share analytics logs from the phone which clearly show the rapid loss in nominal charge capacity and rawmaxcapacity, but no dice.
Update, 18 days later, 3uTools reports it at 89% (iOS still says 90%) with 218 cycles. Quite frustrating.Coconut Battery is quite known. Anyway, back to the thread:
My POS iPhone 14 Pro Max Battery reads as follows:
Capacity: 3950/4297 mAh
Bought: October 8th, 2022
Worst battery degradation I've ever had in a phone.
I wonder if the phones that are seeing significant degradation are in hot locations when charging, etc. This can be bad for battery health.
Oh, and I never use a case on my phone which might have an additional benefit of keeping the phone a little bit cooler while charging.
Worst thing we can do (and obviously many of us will do). I was given a phone with a bad battery, yet we reward by buying the same phone with marginal improvements hoping for a better battery.
It think you'll agree that your situation is anecdotal and that the overwhelming majority user experience is that the batteries are not only fine, but are generally really good.
It may be a bit more than anecdotal, given the number of users reporting this here, Reddit or other networks, but I do not tend to reward a company that gave me a bad product by purchasing the one immediately following it to remedy this (and the 15 Pro Max doesn't sound compelling at all for me if you have a 14 Pro Max).
Mind blowing amount of units isn’t it, general speaking 😬 puts things into perspective that there are not more “issues” actually…One of the things I keep in mind is that they sold ~64 million units from the iPhone 14 series:
- 14: 16.5 million
- 14 Pro: 21 million
- 14 Pro Max: 26.5 million
