Reports regarding the Apple iPhone 13 series have already started surfacing. Just yesterday, we had reported on the device reportedly featuring a portless design and astrophotography. Now, a new report has hinted at it sporting an Always On Display on its OLED display.
According to a SlashGear report, the iPhone 13 series could arrive with this feature, or it might just be available for the higher end iPhone 13 Pro variants. The 2021 iPhone lineup will reportedly feature a new display technology that will work with OLED panels to bring Always On Display functionality to the Apple devices. For those unaware, a key advantage of OLED over LCD is that these panels don’t have to display black. The pixels can simply be turned off to only light certain parts of the screen.
This enables lower battery consumption, which allowed Always On Display to be a feature on certain Android smartphones and even the Apple Watch. Known Tipster Max Weinbach stated that the Cupertino based giant might utilized an LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) panel that will enable it to save on battery draw while offering a higher refresh rate along with Always On Display as well. Although, the iPhone 13’s Always On Display wouldn’t function like most Android devices.
Apparently, the Always On Display for the upcoming iPhones would only focus on display key information like the time or the battery icons. Furthermore, notifications will only be displayed temporarily and would light up just a small section of the display without waking up the entire screen. In other words, there would probably not be a lot of customization on these smartphones. Unfortunately, this is still an unconfirmed report, so take it with a pinch of salt and stay tuned for more updates.
