It is confirmed, Apple would have the intention to introduce an “Always-on” display on its next high-end iPhone. At least that’s what new rumors about iOS 16 suggest. The next version of the operating system will be presented in a few days.
We were talking about it last week, Apple would be working on adding a mode “Always on” dedicated to its future iPhones. According to information from analyst Ross Young, specialist in display issues, this novelty would however be reserved for high-end models. In other words to the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
Engadget this week gives a little more weight to this rumor, reporting that iOS 16 would indeed integrate this new mode “Always on” to the list of its novelties. As a reminder, the next version of iOS will be unveiled during the WWDC 2022 conference that Apple will hold on June 6.
With iOS 16, Apple would like to make the lock screen more useful
If it materializes, this mode “Always on” will always display essential information, even when the iPhone is locked. The thing would be done by taking advantage of a more advanced OLED LTPO display technology, allowing a refresh rate of only 1 Hz when the device is in standby. A display specificity, almost static, which is already found on the Apple Watch… and which should, according to previous rumors, have been installed on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max last year.
Note that the display “Always on” has been common on Android for years, but it has never been exploited by Apple on the iPhone. It would therefore be an important novelty… if not unavoidable.
According to Mark Gurman, a journalist for Bloomberg who is often well informed, iOS 16 would also contain new features relating to the lock screen this time. Apple would prepare in particular wallpapers including widgets, or similar functionalities, making this screen more useful.
We also learn that iOS 16 would bring a new multi-tasking system for the iPad and a function that also allows you to resize open applications in the form of windows. iOS 16 would finally introduce more advanced social features for the Message app.
