The Always-On Display on the iPhone 14 Pro turns itself off when you don’t need it.
When a user leaves their iPhone in a room and walks out while wearing an Apple Watch, the always-on display will turn off automatically and smartly on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The always-on display on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max already turns off when the phone is in a user’s pocket or face down on a table. This helps save battery life when the device is not under use.
Auto Always-On Display
Felixba, a German YouTuber who was at Apple’s “Far Out” event last week and got to try out the new products, says that if the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are paired with an Apple Watch, the always-on display will turn off when the user leaves the room without their phone.
The iPhone 14 Pro will probably use the Apple Watch’s proximity data to turn on the feature and know when a user has left the room. Apple didn’t talk about this unique feature on its website or at its event, but it’s likely one of several ways the always-on display on the iPhone 14 Pro saves power.
iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may use watch proximity data to assess user distance. At a given distance, the off switch will activate. This would be similar to the energy-efficient OLED panel and variable refresh rate on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
This useful feature went unannounced at Apple’s announcement. Apple’s website doesn’t mention it.
This is a valuable Android feature. We hope Google will update with this feature.
