The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the first smartphones in Apple’s lineup to feature Always-On Display - a feature that has been on Android devices for years now. However, like other ‘common’ features adopted by Apple, the Always-On Display on the iPhone 14 Pro lineup has some notable refinements, including how it can automatically turn off if the user is no longer within the device’s vicinity. 

Shared by German YouTuber Felixba, this feature is only available for users that have an Apple Watch, whereby the iPhone 14 Pro can detect if its owner is nearby or has left the room and accordingly, turn Always-On Display on or off. Besides that, the iPhone 14 Pro lineup will also turn off Always-On Display if it is in a user’s pocket or is put face down on a table. 


These measures presumably use proximity data from the Apple Watch as well as the proximity sensor on the iPhone Pro lineup itself, which is now located under the display. During the Far Out event earlier this month, Apple touted the screen on the iPhone 14 Pro lineup as being the most advanced display in the market, with a peak brightness of up to 2000 nits as well as having an LTPO OLED panel that can go down to a refresh rate as low as 1Hz. 

Moreover, the aforementioned features are meant to save battery life without affecting user experience. Pretty neat implementation considering its late debut compared to the rest of the smartphone market.
