Here is how you can turn off the Always-On display on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max if you don’t like how it looks. Exclusive to iPhone 14 Pro lineup, the new Always-On display shows the time, widgets, and wallpapers, as customized by the user.
As per various reviewers, the Always-On display on iPhone 14 Pro lineup is incredibly energy-efficient, despite showing the display in full color, unlike other phones. However, if looking at the display all the time gives you concern that it might still be on, or you want to save that additional bit of battery life, here is how you can turn it off.
If you want to turn off the Always-On display to save battery life, it may not make that much of a difference. iPhone 14 Pro uses the new A16 Bionic chip’s coprocessors, 1Hz refresh rate, and more technologies to dim your display, save battery life, and avoid any burn-in. This is why Apple has kept it on by default.
