 iPhone 14 Pro will finally copy one of the most legendary functions of Android phones

 We had to wait two generations of the iPhone since its inception in the phone industry until we saw the first models with screens with a high refresh rate, while Android mobiles have already taken this feature as common and widespread even among the cheapest smartphones.

 And everything seems to indicate that, this year, Apple plans to adopt another of the functions that many Android devices have included for years: an “Always on Display” or “always on display” mode for displaying notifications, the date and time, or some other type of related information.  .

 Looking back, we'll remember that phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7, launched in 2017, or models from Motorola's Moto G, Moto X, and Moto Z families already included the ability to keep the screen always on while the phone was locked to display relevant information.  Relevancy such as weather, time, date or notifications.

 The functionality has evolved over the years and the arrival of new generations of devices, and has become more efficient thanks to new OLED screen technologies, which not only allow black pixels to be turned off to save power, but can also reduce the panel refresh rate to just 1 Hz to consume less battery.  A good example is the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra display.

 With the arrival of LTPO-type screens on the iPhone 13 Pro, many users expected the inclusion of this function in the previous generation of the series.  However, it was not.


 Now, everything could change with the arrival of the iPhone 14 Pro.  As noted by screen industry analyst Ross Young, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are expected to be the first to offer support for "Always on Display" thanks to the new generation of ProMotion display.

 On the other hand, its arrival should come as no surprise, as devices like the Apple Watch have already included an "AOD" mode for several generations thanks to its screen's ability to dramatically reduce the refresh rate to save power.
