iPhone 14 Pro: Here’s How Apple’s Always-on Display Will Work (Yes, It Will Be Different)

The launch of the new iPhone series is getting closer and the rumors about what will be the new devices of the company are getting stronger. We know there will be differences between the versions of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plusi.e. the more standard ones, and the versions of iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max which instead will aim to have more power and more features. One of all that of the screen always on, that is the famous “Always-on” which Apple seems to be really intent on introducing for the first time.

iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max: Here’s how the Always-On Display will work

How will the Always-on display work on the future new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max? Meanwhile, for those who don’t know what we’re talking about, an always-on display is literally nothing more than an always-on display. This allows the system to continue to show some information on the screen, such as the clock or the notification icon, consuming very little battery power, so as to allow the user to check some information on the screen without the need to completely wake up the device. On Android it is practically an always present function with OLED display but everything is also used on many smartwatches. Apple itself has added it with the 5 series (and subsequent ones) of its Apple Watch allowing precisely to observe a minimal dial even with the display in standby.

On the iPhone this feature has never been taken into consideration so far and above all it has never been included on previous iPhones. However, it has been rumored for some time that the Always-on display could actually become an exclusive feature of the ” Pro ” models of the iPhone 14. This is because this year’s Pro variants will receive a new variable refresh rate display that drops down to 1Hz per second. Consequently this would allow Apple to insert the Always-on Display going to consume less energy than current displays.

9to5Mac found several references to always-on display support in iOS 16, going to confirm all the items collected previously. Basically there would be an internal mode that Apple uses to test the Always-on mode on the iPhone 13 and which could therefore finally arrive on the new iPhones within the year. As usual, Apple is trying to give the feature its own personality by differentiating its use compared to the one already present on the classic Android.

In fact, we know that the Always-On Display on Android smartphones they tend to turn off the entire display, showing only a screen with the lit pixels of the clock, date, and notification icons. With the new lock screen in iOS 16, it has become quite clear that the iPhone can indeed enter the Always-On Display feature.

Based on the internal files of iOS 16 beta 4, it turns out that the system wallpapers are now ready for this new Always-On display mode. Specifically, we have already seen that the new iOS 16 no longer uses static images for backgrounds but multi-layered vector images that change in real time.Now, in addition to regular vectors, native backgrounds (like the one with the recently added clownfish) they also have a new status labeled “Sleep” which has very dark and faded elements.

Wallpapers in this state are quite similar to Apple Watch faces with Always-On Display enabled. And basically what will happen is that the user, once the screen of the iPhone 14 Pro is turned off, the wallpaper will switch to the “Sleep” version, replicating the same effect as the Apple Watch but on the iPhone 14 Pro. In short, users will still see their own background, albeit in a dark version. The wallpaper will return to full brightness once the user touches the screen or presses the power button.
