The always-on display of the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max had to take a lot of criticism after the launch of the flagships for the fact that it can hardly be distinguished visually from the active lock screen. With iOS 16.2, Apple improves and gives users more options to customize the always-on display.

Most Android smartphones only show the time, date and possibly some widgets or notifications in always-on mode. The always-on display of the iPhone 14 Pro (approx. 1,299 euros on Amazon) displays the entire lock screen, including a darkened version of the selected wallpaper.

Due to the LTPO AMOLED panel, whose refresh rate can be reduced to 1 Hz, this does not affect the smartphone’s battery life too much, but many users criticize Apple’s always-on display for the fact that it is often hardly visible from an activated display is to be distinguished. With the help of a workaround, the display can be simplified so that only the time and date are displayed in always-on mode. With the latest beta version of iOS 16.2, Apple gives users more options to customize the look of the lock screen in standby mode.

Because the new operating system version makes it possible to select in the system settings whether the always-on display should show the background image and the notifications. If both options are deactivated, only the time, date and widgets remain visible when the iPhone 14 Pro is put to sleep. The photo in the tweet embedded below by 9to5Mac editor Chance Miller shows what this looks like. The launch of the final version of iOS 16.2 is expected in December, although Apple has not yet confirmed whether this feature will be made available to all iPhone 14 Pro users with the next iOS update.
