Apple has once again listened to its customers, and the functionality that Android has had for aeons has finally been included to their next iPhone line-up!
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple will include an Always-On-Display feature in their future iPhone 13, the iPhone 13. The iPhone’s AOD is defined as a “Apple Watch-like always-on mode” that displays important information such as time, date, and notifications even when the screen is off.
Because Android OEMs ( Google Pixel 6 is coming with their own custom SoC like Apple, check it out ) have already moved on to building under-display cameras for their handsets, Apple is apparently working on reducing notch sizes for the next generation of iPhones. Furthermore, the corporation will finally catch up in the display department, with 120Hz refresh rate screens being added to the devices to ensure a seamless, fluid experience.
And if you’re wondering why Apple is now including AOD in iPhones, it’s because LTPO panels for iPhones have recently arrived. These panels have dynamic refresh rate switching, which allows the iPhone to reduce the refresh rate to, say, 10Hz while keeping the AOD on, resulting in significant battery savings over leaving the display on max refresh rate all the time.
Additionally, Apple anticipates stronger iPhone sales this year, with an initial batch of 90 million devices scheduled for its new iPhones, which is 20% more than the iPhone 12 series.
