My 12 Pro is at 83% for reference
Daughter's 12 - 87% (1 month after launch)
Son 12 Mini - 86% (same)
Wife 13 Pro - 87% (launch day)

My 14 Pro - 88% (launch day)

On the Apple event today, "A16 Bionic proven... how efficient it is..."

my launch day 14 Pro is at 89%, but it seems to struggle to make it through an entire day. I was contemplating trading it in for a new 15 pro but I'm not realizing it'll be way cheaper to just pay apple to replace my battery.

My 14 pro is at 88% as of today! Idk what I am doing wrong.. but I feel like this battery never lasted me a full day. For those who are at 100, do you never use your phones or something? I am a heavy user.. but jeesh.. oh, and it has to be under 80 to be replaced under warranty.

Mine is at 90% with 559 cycles. Tried to replace it but every store says no replacements available due to it being a new phone still. But i wonder does 90% make that huge impact or is there no point in replacing it?

So I don’t understand how the # of cycles contribute to capacity… being that I have 312 cycles and mine is at 88! Makes no sense.

91% on my 14 Pro Max since I installed the iOS 17 developer beta. I think having my phone connected to a magsafe charger all the time on my desk or bedside table has degraded the battery. Luckily i'm on the upgrade program

89% on my 14 Pro that I bought launch day. Honestly I've been having bad luck with the batteries since the XS. I figured it was a trade off for getting a perfect screen.

I'm considering getting a 15 Pro now. I traded in my 13 Pro yesterday so I have that amount on a gift card. So that with the trade in for my 14 Pro, will cover the cost of a new 15 Pro, I just have to pay taxes.

I do think there's some manufacturing variance from battery to battery. From what I understand, iPhones will stay at 100% for along time because the percentage is actually over 100% (the actual charge capacity is higher than the "rated" capacity). Then, they'll start dropping below 100% and will continue to. In reality, the percentage was always dropping, you just didn't know it because all you saw was "100%." Some iPhones, fresh off the production line, have 105% battery, some have 110% battery.

YES, usage and good/bad charging habits will also impact battery health. But I believe the above paragraph is also true.

I believe that's why some people can do everything right and have 95% gone after 6 months, and why others can adopt the same charging habits and still be at 100%.

FWIW, I've had my iPhone SE for a year and it's down to 92%. It was at 100% for like six months or more. Been falling like a rock ever since! :p
Yeah, this lotto thing is horrible lol

As others, and in my opinion my 14 Pro is worst battery had. 87% launch.

I’m thinking if I upgrade to go 15 this time, non Pro. But now I’m worried about if it’s an inherent A16 problem, will just be more of the same.

I think the A16 used is identical to this years 14 Pro, so will we not get the same problems?

Mine doesn’t last a day, I’m making sure I can charge mid afternoon, before was waiting until later evening to charge.

went to the store today to see if they would replace it under the limited warranty which ends for me in 3 days...nope..they said I'd have to pay $ hunch is there are some select batches of bad's gonna take a class-action lawsuit likely unless they acknowledge the issue....i spoke to a senior apple tech today and told him my research showing this to be a large problem based on many accounts of customers and he did not deny it...i told him i wanted to make a record of my issue with apple....
