iPhone 14 Pro is expected to get an Always-on Display feature, according to iOS 16 Developer Beta.

The always-on display functionality is believed to be limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, however, older models will be able to use it as well.

iPhone 14 Pro is expected to get an Always-on Display feature, according to iOS 16 Developer Beta.

When Apple eventually revealed its current generation mobile operating system, iOS 16, there was no mention of an always-on display. However, this does not imply that Apple has chosen to ignore it, at least according to reports based on code found in the company's current mobile operating system. According to these sources, Apple has integrated provisions for always-on display within iOS 16, implying that it will be unveiled when the iPhone 14 series is released. According to reports, the capability will be restricted for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Always-on Display on iPhone 14 Pro

According to 9to5Mac, Apple has included many code references indicating that the presence of an always-on display within the iOS 16 code is not a coincidence. These are three new frameworks that iOS 16 will employ to efficiently manage the backlight on an iPhone's display.

According to the research, such a framework is commonly employed by all devices with always-on screens. Managing a device's backlight allows its software to regulate how the display operates in an efficient, always-on state. The function is also tied to the next iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max's ProMotion variable refresh rate feature, which the report says could go all the way down to a 1Hz refresh rate in order to spend the least amount of battery in idle mode.

It also mentions that Apple has included developer flags in iOS 16, which can be used to enable always-on display on an earlier iPhone 13 Pro series phone. However, it's unclear whether this is only for testing or if Apple would offer it as an upgrade to the iPhone 13 Pro series in a future iOS release.

The iPhone 13 Pro series already includes a ProMotion display, which allows the display's software controller to adjust the refresh rate from 10Hz to 120Hz dependent on the material displayed on the screen. According to 9to5Mac, 10Hz may not be low enough for efficient always-on display performance, and so Apple may release the iPhone 14 Pro with a refresh rate as low as 1Hz — to optimize battery consumption.

However, this is not always the case, as top phones such as Samsung's Galaxy S series handsets include always-on displays and refresh rates as low as 10Hz.
