iPhone 14: iOS 16 will introduce the “Always-On” display on the iPhone 14. Will it affect the battery life of Apple phones?

Apple enthusiasts are gearing up for the highly anticipated launch of the tech giant’s smartphone of the year, the iPhone 14, which is rumored to sport several key features including the “Always-On” display ( ODA).

According to multiple reports, Apple will launch iOS 16 alongside the next iPhone, which will come with an improved lock screen that will have wallpapers with widget-like functionality.

Although the “Always-On” display is new to iPhones, Android phone users including Samsung, Xiaomi and Oppo are familiar with this feature as it has been around for years.

Even Apple’s Watch, from Watch Series 5 and onwards, has the mode.

When the new feature arrives with the iPhone 14, Apple will also make it available on the iPhone 13 series. The tech giant has been thinking about this feature for months now. There were also rumors that the iPhone 13 series was going to come with a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display that could enable AOD.


What is the “always on” display?
The mode is something that allows the display to be always on, as the name suggests. With the ‘Always-On’ display mode, only a certain part of the display stays on.

The feature allows selective pixels on the smartphone screen to light up even when it is in lock mode to alert the user of notifications such as time, incoming calls and messages.

The ‘Always-On’ display feature does not consume much battery as only a certain part of the display is on while the majority of the smartphone screen remains off.

The tech giant is rumored to bring this feature to select smartphones with both OLED + LTPO panels.
