The new iPhone 14 Pro features an always-on display, a Dynamic Island notch, and a new 48-megapixel camera.
After the appearance of the first reviews, it became known what benefits these innovations provide. About, how the iPhone 14 Pro and Dynamic Island work in reality, we already wrote. In this note, we will focus on the always-on screen.
Apple implemented this feature when there are hundreds of Always on Display enabled Android smartphones on the market. However, in the iPhone 14 Pro, this mode is implemented differently. The screen simply dims to the minimum value, while the image on it is clearly visible.
The main difference is that in this mode, application notifications continue to appear on the screen, including instant messengers, social networks and navigation. According to the first reviewers, this allows you to unlock your smartphone less often to look for fresh notifications. Driving at night, this will also save battery power.
In Always on Display mode, the adaptive refresh rate of the LTPO screen is reduced to 1 Hz. However, some reviewers also noted that they will not use this feature: iPhone 14 Pro Max tests showed that the power consumption of the lock screen and Always on Display is about 10% of the total.
