Last week, Ross Young mentioned the idea that the next iPhone from Apple could present screens capable of offering an always-on display. We have described what would underpin this novelty and what it could be used for. Also mentioned was the fact that the competition has already been offering this so-called “always on” screen feature for several years.
Permanent display: Mark Gurman confirms
Mark Gurman, in his newsletter published last night, came to confirm Ross Young’s hypothesis. According to the Bloomberg reporter, iOS 16 should lay the first stones of always-on display on iPhone. Thus, we could find in the first beta version of the OS, technical references to the functionality in question.
The analysis also mentioned in its publication that the always-on display was a novelty already discussed in Apple’s laboratories last year, for deployment on iPhone 13. Finally, the latest generation of Apple mobile could not take advantage of it. We will therefore have to wait until September 2022 to see the iPhone display the time and other information continuously, like the Apple Watch.
Note that only the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could benefit from this addition. This will serve as an additional differentiating factor from the non-Pro iPhone 14s.
The WWDC conference will take place next Monday at 7 p.m. French time. You can follow her with us. Apple should release the first beta of iOS 16 the same evening, or even the next day. We will then not fail to let you know if the source code of the OS contains the expected clue about a permanent display function.
