- Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman has new information about the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
- Accordingly, Apple’s upcoming top smartphones will have an always-on display.
- In idle mode, the refresh rate is reduced to a minimum.
The iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will apparently have an always-on screen modeled on the Apple Watch. That’s according to the usually well-informed Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman in his weekly Newsletter. The entry-level iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, on the other hand, are minor updates compared to the iPhone 13 generation.
Concrete reports about an always-on display were already circulating in connection with the iPhone 12. It’s something Apple has been working on for years. Now the manufacturer is apparently ready for a release. The timing is right, after all Apple presented a foretaste of iOS 16 at this year’s WWDC. And this is where changeable lock screens play a big role.
In the future, information about the weather, upcoming appointments and other customizable widgets will converge on the iPhone’s lock screen. So that a constantly active display does not put too much strain on the battery, Apple turns down the refresh rate.
According to Gurman, as with the Apple Watch, there will also be options for hiding private information – such as upcoming appointments, messages or fitness logs – from prying eyes.
In addition to the new screen technology, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature a significantly improved camera system. The resolution will reportedly increase to 48 megapixels. The upgrade of the front camera is also considered set. Everything we know about the iPhone 14 generation can be found in the linked overview article.
