The iPhone 14 Pro reviews are out, allowing several journalists and influencers to express their views about the company''s recent iPhone models. While the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were commended for their new Dynamic Island, photography capabilities, premium finish, and more, there was one thing that irritated me a bit: the new Always-On display. It appears a bit too on, and Im not the only one who thought of it.
The Verges Nilay Patel was the first to say that the iPhone 14 Pros Always-On display is a little too on. They are able to dim everything and only highlight the clock and some notifications in black and white if you compare them.
While it was first alleged that Apple would add the Always-On display technology to the iPhone 13 Pro, the company waited to introduce a screen with a 1Hz refresh rate to add this feature. According to Apple, the screen is only refreshing once per minute when the panel is turned off. Apple says it can save battery while displaying important information.
Marques Brownlee, a YouTuber, said that his review unit battery was going down faster as this technology was turned on, which makes sense since no light is better than some light. While Apple demonstrated a few interesting backgrounds with Always-On display use, reviewers threw us away.
Imagine if you listen to The Beatles White Album. The AOD will keep displaying a dimmed white album, which, according to Patel, too. If you have a family picture on the beach sand or other white background, youll see that the Always-On display will lessen rather than enhance the experience.
The iPhone 14 Pro Always-On display is too bright because Apple adds the brighter panel ever placed on a smartphone in this generation. In regular conditions, it has a peak brightness of 600 nits. But out in the sun or with HDR content, it can go up to 2,000 nits.
With a more bright display and Apple''s Apple Watch selection, it makes sense why the Always-On display technology appears to be on.
Here''s a rough patch and a desire for the iPhone 14 Pro Always-On Display feature.
If you like me and already believe this technology is better turned off, please do not worry. In the iPhones settings, you may disable Always-On. It''s a very simple process.
Instead of simply changing my background, I wish Apple would highlight the clock and my widgets in the near future. It would for sure save battery and would slam my privacy fears.
It''s also interesting to note that Apple has made a few tweaks for the AOD technology. If youre wearing an Apple Watch and go far from your iPhone, the display is automatically turned off. In addition, you can also alter how notifications are displayed to show just how many notifications you have, and not from who they are.
I think the iPhone 14 Pro''s first look is very attractive. I hope that Apple can do that with the next software updates.
