Apple published today new support document With additional details about the new Always-On Display mode on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Specifically, the document lists eight scenarios where the Always On display is temporarily turned off.
To save battery life, Apple says the display goes completely black when:
- Your iPhone is lying face down
- Your iPhone is in your pocket or bag
- sleep focus is on
- low power mode is on
- Your iPhone is connected to CarPlay
- You are using Continuity Camera
- You haven’t used your iPhone for a while (see paragraph below)
- Your iPhone detects that you have moved away from it with the paired Apple Watch
According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max can learn your “activity patterns” and turn the always-on display off and on accordingly. For example, Apple says the display can work in conjunction with a user’s alarm or sleep schedule if they have one set.
Always-on display mode is enabled by default. To turn it off, open the Settings app, tap the Display & Brightness menu, and turn off Always On.
iPhone 14 Pro models can drop to a refresh rate as low as 1Hz to ensure that the Always On display doesn’t have too much impact on battery life. Apple says the Always-On Display uses multiple coprocessors in the A16 Bionic chip to refresh the display using “minimal power,” making the display “incredibly power efficient.”
Always-on display mode dims the entire lock screen, but still shows information like time, widgets, and wallpaper. Once you pick up the iPhone, tap the screen, or press the side button, the display returns to normal brightness. You can also swipe up from the bottom of the display to wake up the iPhone as usual and authenticate with Face ID.
