The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max’s new Always on Display feature enables users to view relevant information like the time or widgets on the lock screen without pressing the unlock button.  Both models’ displays use LTPO technology, which adjusts the refresh rate to 1Hz and may slightly reduce battery life. So, here is the way to disable the Always-On display on iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

How Does the Always-On Display Work?

Almost everyone thinks that Always-On Display is a feature that makes the display completely black with a clock and notifications, which has always been seen in Android devices. However, Apple wanted to take a different approach to make it more useful.

You can see that Always-On Display maintains the lock screen’s normal functionality while dimming the brightness. The time, wallpaper, and widgets are displayed.

The refresh rate drops to 1Hz when the Always-On Display is on. And this is something that does not happen in android devices, where the Always-On Display maintains the refresh rate of 60Hz which will drain more battery than iPhone.
