The iPhone 14 Pro Always On display allows you to glimpse at the new iOS 16 Lock Screen whenever you want, without touching the screen. It’s a highly welcomed feature, imported from the Apple Watch. Check out it tips, tricks and settings!

This feature makes the iPhone Lock Screen to be display continuously. You don’t have to tap the screen or raise the device to light up the display.
The new iOS 16 Lock Screen is glanceable whenever it’s within eyesight, allowing you to easily get info from the new Lock Screen widgets.
iPhone 14 Pro Always On Display Turns Off?
Yes, iOS 16 is proactive and will save battery life whenever it’s sure that you aren’t able to glimpse at the Lock Screen.
The Always On display turns off automatically when:
- iPhone 14 Pro is placed face down on a surface.
- When you store the device in your pocket.
Always On Display & Battery Life?
Apple markets the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max as all-day battery devices even with the Always-On display enabled.
However, considering that the screen turns off when placed upside down and this saves battery, it’s safe to assume that disabling the Always On feature all the time will save even more battery.
Fact: iPhone 14 Always On display not working in Low Power Mode? We’ll have to test it out and confirm. Stay tuned.

Horrible feature and if ill upgrade to 14 pro max ill turn it off immediately
Thanks for sharing your opinion Maged. Share your feedback if you upgrade.
A terrible idea – bad for battery life, bad for privacy. This is the first feature I will turn off when I receive my iPhone 14 Pro.
Thanks for your thoughts Ian. Enjoy your new iPhone 14 Pro. Don’t hesitate to send us feedback about it!
I am wondering if I can have this on a schedule. Specifically at night next to your bed.
Good point. You might be able do to it using Automations in the Shortcuts app.
I’m curious about the Always On display. I have ordered the iPhone 14 Pro to replace my iPhone 6 (iphone 6 only has ios 12) and when then new phone comes I wonder how I will feel about that Always On when I drive and I have my phone in the holder I have. For the past 8 years the display was black while driving, I hope its not distracting. Knowing there is an off feature is nice to know.
Screen will be dimmed in Always-On mode, but it can still be distracting while driving. Would appreciate a follow up after you test it out.
Congrats for your purchase!
I received my iPhone 14 Pro on Friday 16th, and have played with this all weekend. I upgraded from my iPhone 6. WOW this phone is awesome. It is blazing fast, the images are so crisp and clear…. I love it.
Drove from New Hampshire to Vermont on Saturday night and I tested the ‘always on’ display to see if it would bother me as I drive. The phone was in my holder attached to my car vent facing me, and once the phone auto dimmed, it didn’t bother me at all. It is not bring, heck my radio light was brighter then the iPhone. I have not had it long enough to test battery usage for the always on display. Going to Hawaii next month, and plan on taking a ton of pictures, so next up for me is to test and play with the camera settings.
Apple makes some great products!!!
Thanks for the feedback Ted. Glad that the iPhone 14 AOD is easy to drive. Enjoy your new device and enjoy your trip to Hawaii. Don’t hesitate to check back if you encounter any issues or have questions.
