How to Disable the Always-on Display on iPhone

Turn off Always-on Display on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

With the new iPhone 14 series, Apple introduced an Always-on display in iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max. Thanks to a more power-efficient OLED panel, the Always-on display doesn’t have any significant impact on the battery life. The display refresh rate goes to as low as 1Hz to reduce battery drain when the iPhone is on an Always-in display.

Apple has also added some cases when the Always-on display will automatically turn itself off. When your iPhone is lying face down, iPhone is inside your pocket, or in Sleep Focus mode, Always-on Mode will be turned off. If you are wearing your Apple Watch and leave the room where the phone was, it will turn off the Always-on display. Apple has also given a complete list of cases when the iPhone will automatically turn off the Always-on display and make the display completely dark.
