Upgraded LTPO Screens might be used by the iPhone 14 Pro for always-on function

Apple''s first flagship smartphones with a variable 120Hz ProMotion display are expected to come with the same high-refresh-rate panels, but a higher refresh rate spectrum. This might give Apple the ability to introduce an Always-On display on the iPhone 14 Pro models.

Apple may incorporate LTPO displays on the iPhone 14 Pro with a refresh rate that can decrease as low as 1Hz, paving a way for continuous operation.

Apple used an LTPO display on iPhone 13 Pro models to prolong battery life and increase battery life. However, the ProMotion display can be reduced by up to 1Hz when the screen is left idle.

According to analyst Ross Young, the ProMotion on iPhone 14 Pro models might reduce the refresh rates to as low as 1Hz with an improved controller, allowing for Always-On functionality. However, Apple is confident that the standard iPhone 14 Pro models will have a 60Hz refresh rate without an LTPO component.

The addition of a Always-On display would allow the iPhone to show date and time along with notification on the lock screen if the phone is not being used. Apple also uses a LTPO display on the Apple Watch Series 7 that allows the wearable to have 18-hour battery life. Android phones have used an Always-On display for a long time and it is time to add it to the iPhone.

Yeah, this is all there is to it. Do you think Apple will produce an Always-On display with the iPhone 14 Pro models? Share your valuable insights with us in the comments section below.
