Apple is working on an always-on display feature for iPhone with iOS 16

The new feature will be available for iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max .


Within days of WWDC 22 , possible new announcements about Apple ‘s operating systems are being revealed And the main point of attention is taken by iOS.

According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg , iOS 16 will bring an always-on display feature to the next  more premium iPhones: iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max .

iOS 16 builds on future support for an always – on lock screen, something Apple was originally planning for last year’s iPhone 13 . This would allow the phone to significantly reduce the frame rate on the lock screen and display quickly visible information, similar to newer Apple watches.

Exclusive to the Pro and Pro Max

According to the source, he was told that “always-on display mode is exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models ”.

With the iPhone 13 Pro, Apple added a 120Hz panel with a refresh rate, but it varies between 10Hz and 120Hz, unlike the Apple Watch, which can also update the refresh rate once a minute.

iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will lower the lock screen frame rate with Always On mode enabled, allowing them to conserve power while the screen remains on. It’s unclear if the new iPhone will use the same low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display that Apple uses in newer Watch models. These low-power displays play a huge role in making always-on mode work properly, as they are designed to prevent devices from consuming too much power.

biggest rumors

In line with previous predictions, Gurman believes that Apple could introduce improved windowing and multitasking features on the iPad. He cites the findings of developer Steve Troughton-Smith, who recently discovered that Apple may be working on a feature that could allow users to freely resize windows. Apple could also review some of its applications; In addition to adding new audio features to Messages, Gurman predicts that Apple will revamp its System Preferences menu to look more like the Settings app in iOS.
