iPhone 14 Apple Please, don’t try to complicate the ever-on display


Since the rumors began this year, before that iPhone 13 launch, I’ve often commented about the iPhone’s absence of a display. Similar rumors have surfaced in a new way, prompting some to think that Apple could eventually make a move on this long-running Android feature once we get the iPhone 14 to arrive in our homes.

If you’re not sure of the meaning behind my words, this is the essence. A display that is always on (AOD) is an energy-saving mode in which most of the display is off, except for some pixels that display things such as the date, time, and notifications. Because OLED panels, such as those in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 (and likely those on the iPhone 14), can switch individual pixels on or off, AOD doesn’t significantly impact the battery in any way.

Apple may take a long time to implement new features, and that’s why I suggest that those who love to live in the middle of things get a top Android handset. This signifies that when a new feature comes to the iPhone is well-crafted. However, this isn’t always the case; it’s not the main point.

There’s a possibility that iOS 16 is set to overhaul your lock screen completely, perhaps with the addition of “wallpapers that have widget-like capabilities,” according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (opens in new tab). We’ve been told that Apple will limit AOD only to only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with Gurman declaring that it’s because Apple’s AOD functions by reducing the display’s frame rate, which is a feature that is only available to Pro models.

The way that iOS 16’s lock screen’s design is to be seen. However, should Apple plans to redesign it with widgets or similar things, I’m worried about how Apple will handle the display that is always on.

Apple sometimes has a tendency towards hubris, and I worry that could rear its head here.
