The always-on display of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max of Apple will intelligently and automatically turn off when a user leaves their iPhone in a room or leaves the building while wearing an Apple Watch.
When the iPhone is placed face down on a table or in a user’s pocket, the always-on display on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will already switch off, preserving battery life.
If a user has an Apple Watch paired to the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max, the iPhone will disable the always-on display once it detects the user has left the room without their phone, claims German YouTuber Felixba, who was present at the Steve Jobs Theater for Apple’s “Far Out” event last week and had hands-on time with the new products.
To activate the feature and determine when a user has left the room, the iPhone 14 Pro probably uses proximity information from the Apple Watch. Although Apple didn’t mention the special function during its event or on its website, it’s likely one of many power-saving capabilities the iPhone 14 Pro’s always-on display has.
With an always-on display, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have more battery-saving OLED displays with a customizable refresh rate as low as 1 Hz. A new display engine is also included in the A16 Bionic chip, which helps manage the always-on display and other features like ProMotion while maximizing battery efficiency.
A few days back saw the release of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which feature an always-on display, improved cameras, and the brand-new Dynamic Island. Customers will start receiving their orders on Friday, September 16.
