The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are finally out. People experiencing the Always-On display for the first time on an iPhone might have noticed that this feature is a bit too on. If you want to know when the Always-On display automatically turns off, now we have the answer.
Apple said the Always-On display goes dark when you don’t need it. To save battery life, the display is completely dark on these eight different occasions:
- Your iPhone 14 Pro is face down;
- Your iPhone is in your pocket;
- Sleep Focus is on;
- Low Power Mode is on;
- Your iPhone is connected to CarPlay;
- You’re using Continuity Camera;
- You haven’t used your iPhone for a while;
- Your iPhone detects that you moved away from it when you wear a paired Apple Watch.
Interestingly enough, Apple said the iPhone 14 Pro learns your activity patterns and turns the display off and on accordingly, “including if you set up an alarm or sleep schedule.”
Regarding the paired Apple Watch, the company stated that the Always-On display will turn on when your watch is close to your phone again, meaning you’ll always be to see what’s on the screen.
If iPhone 14 Pro users don’t like the Always-On display feature, they can always turn it off. Early reviews show that there’s not much of a difference in having this feature on, as Apple only refreshes the display once every second.
