The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may finally have an always-on display. As reported by Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple may include the feature in iOS 16, which would allow the iPhone to show a limited amount of information even when it is locked.
When the always-on mode on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is enabled, the lock screen’s frame rate will be reduced, allowing the devices to save energy while the display is still powered on. This would be similar to how the feature works on the Apple Watch Series 5 and up. Is it possible that the new iPhone, like Apple’s newer Watch models, will use the same low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display? Because they’re designed to keep devices from consuming excessive amounts of power, these low-power screens are critical to the proper operation of always-on mode.
To enable an always-on display on the iPhone 13, analysts predicted the device would have an LTPO display in 2013. There are already a number of Android devices that support always-on mode, and they’ve been doing so for some time now. Always-on displays, such as those found on some Samsung phones, can show information such as the time, battery level, widgets, and more even when the phone is locked.
Wallpapers with “widget-like capabilities” are expected in iOS 16, according to Gurman. In addition to the always-on display, previous leaks suggest that Apple may only include its new A16 chip in the two premium models, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
On June 6th, at its rapidly approaching Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple is expected to make additional announcements. Gurman thinks that Apple will continue to improve the iPad’s multitasking and windowing capabilities.
According to Steve Troughton-Smith, a developer, Apple may be working on a feature that would allow users to freely resize windows, which he cites in his article. In addition to adding new audio features to Messages, Gurman predicts that Apple will revamp its System Preferences menu to look more like iOS’s Settings app. We won’t have to wait long to see if any of these predictions come to fruition at the upcoming WWDC.
Well, that’s all we have here about Apple iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max’s always-on display. We hope you found this useful.
