Turning off the always-on screen destroys iPhone 14 Pro

with the iPhone 14 Pro And the iPhone 14 Pro Max Apple gave us a great gift, but I see some ingratitude. I am talking about Always On ScreenBringing your new iPhone to life like never before. However, I can’t believe I’m about to say this, there are so many people Turn off feature!

By dismissively dismissing the always-on iPhone 14 Pro screen, you’re ruining the best thing about it.

What’s so good about that?

What’s so good about the iPhone’s always-on display? Basically, it sure is bewitching. Always-on screens are nothing new. If you’ve used almost any Android phone for the past few years, there’s an option to see the time, date, notification icons, battery percentage, and sometimes, if you’re very lucky, there’s a small picture on the lock screen as well. But the screen is always black, and while informative, the always-on Android screens seem only functional and nothing more.

iPhone always-on display is a stunning full-color continuation of your home screen. The designers took what they learned from the Apple Watch’s always-on display and applied it directly to the larger iPhone screen. It’s now part of the operating system, and the flow between it and the home screen, notifications, shortcuts, and widgets is seamless.

If you choose one of Apple’s themed wallpapers (I’m obsessed with astronomy themes), the attention to detail is amazing. The little green dot showing your location on the globe is just a nice touch. If you want to use other wallpapers, that’s fine, and if you want the always-on screen to be busier, you can add widgets as well. However, in my opinion, it’s at its best when almost completely stock is left without tools – just a nice background that you can see all the time.

Practical as well as beautiful

The iPhone 14 Pro’s always-on display is also excellent in practice. The iPhone now technically has three main interactive screens. The first is the always-on locked screen with big and clear notification alerts along with the time and date. Second, when you unlock the phone with Face ID but don’t swipe, you can read and respond to notifications. Next, the third and final stage is to swipe up and unlock the phone completely. At all times, the wallpaper, icons, fonts, brightness are all transformed and transformed to make your phone look like a living thing.

The 14 Pro, with its always-on display, looks attractive, bright, sexy and absolutely gorgeous. If you turn it off, you will miss out on a beautifully designed software feature that enhances everyday use.

What about the battery?

Early on, the iPhone 14 Pro got some Bad press about battery life, some people credit the arrival of the vibrant, always-on display. It’s a fair point, as it totally uses battery power when it’s on. But is it so consumable that your new iPhone will? Not working for a day? I’ve been using the iPhone 14 Pro since launch, and it’s received several small software updates since then – each improving efficiency incrementally to the point that my initial concern about the very short battery life has mostly been allayed.

With about three to four hours of activity per day, from about 7:30 a.m. to midnight, the iPhone 14 Pro now ends up with about 20% left. According to the iOS 16 battery page, the astronomy wallpaper theme I was using was consuming about 3% of the battery, or on days when I didn’t use the phone much, it was consuming about 5%. The way I look at it is like this: things would be pretty miserable if the battery level only got to 5%, and at this point I probably wouldn’t have to worry about the little I would get back if the always-on screen had been off all day.

Battery life isn’t the iPhone 14 Pro’s best feature, but it does get better as the phone gets further optimized through software updates. However, based on battery stats after 10+ days, the always-on screen isn’t the main cause of any drain I’ve seen. Yes, you will save some Power by turning it off, but nothing life changing based on my experience. Why not enjoy the always-on screen instead of worrying about a few percent?

Leave it – or don’t buy the phone

Is there an exception to my rule about using the always-on display? I didn’t think so, but in a Twitter poll I asked if iPhone 14 Pro owners use the always-on display (69% said they didn’t), one response said they don’t feel the need to use because of the Apple Watch. It’s an interesting point, as the functions are mostly duplicated, but I still liked seeing the beautiful phone screen lit up on the desk next to me, even with Apple Watch Ultra on my wrist.

Do you keep the always on screen active on iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max? #iPhone14Pro # iPhone14ProMax

iPhone 14 Pro is not the biggest and most exciting update of the world iPhone 13 Pro or even iPhone 12 Pro, but the always-on display is the most obvious visual difference between them. If you plan to turn it off all the time, what makes it really special – almost alive – will be missing. And at this point, you should ask yourself if you really want the phone at all.
