Always On Display is one of the differential functions that the iPhone 14 Pro On previous models and after a series of tests carried out, it was possible to determine how much battery wear is by having this option activated, which will always show the screen on.
On the YouTube channel, PhoneBuff, It was where they did the evaluations, finding results very similar to those produced by devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, demonstrating that spending is not significantly detrimental to phone use.
This function has two ways to use and they were added in the update of iOS 16.2. One is with the active wallpaper and the other with only the widgets and the time. For both cases they did tests.
In the first scenario the result was that the iPhone 14 Pro It consumes 0.8% more battery per hour compared to not having the option activated. While having only the tools and time in mode Always On Display consumption was 0.6% more per hour.
After 24 hours, the total consumption with this function active was 16% with the wallpaper and 14% without it. All this taking into account that when the cell phone has the screen off it consumes 0% of the battery.
The first conclusion of these tests is that there is no major difference between using the Always On Display with the wallpaper than without it, since the battery consumption is less than 2%.
Another important fact is that this range of 16% of additional battery consumption is the same that generates the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra when using the same function.
To carry out this experiment, the managers put the phone under certain conditions, such as activating airplane mode and raising the screen brightness to 1,000 lux.
In addition, it must be taken into account that Manzana gives users the ability to drop the screen refresh rate to 1Hz, it also turns off completely when the user places the phone face down, puts it in their pocket, or walks away from it and has a apple watch on your wrist. All this allows them to save battery by having the d function activated.e Always On Display.
