The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are expected to have “Always-on Display” and now iOS 16 , the latest version of Apple’s smartphone operating system , includes updated wallpapers specifically to work with. evidence emerged.
Last year’s iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max were the first iPhones to feature a high refresh rate of 120Hz to allow the screen to refresh twice as fast as 60Hz displays to make moving content appear smoother and faster .
Since high refresh rates are very battery draining, Apple has equipped the phones with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) technology, which allows for a dynamic refresh rate that changes depending on what’s on the screen. The limitation is that phones are only capable of lowering the refresh rate to 10Hz , so they didn’t have the always-on display feature.
Here's how the iPhone 14 Pro's always-on display will work… 👀📱
Rather than being completely black with just the date/time like on Android, your wallpaper will fade out and still be visible.

New Rumors Claim The Feature Will Only Be Available On 2 iPhone 14 Models
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are said to have displays that will allow 1Hz refresh rate, confirming the rumors about always-on display. The always-on display feature on iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will likely let you view widgets that show battery levels, alarms, weather, calendars and other information when the screen is at low brightness. It will also be possible to enable a setting to prevent sensitive data from appearing on the lock screen.
For now, new claims state that the regular models, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max , will have 60Hz displays and therefore will not support the always-on display feature. It is now quite possible that the other two new models will come with an always-on display.
