Apple plans provide iPhone 13 a new advanced feature. This new function is inspired by one of the features of Apple Watch. How does Always-On Display work?
Apple is planning to enhance its iPhone 13, providing it a new advanced feature that comes from Apple Watch. This new function will surely excite many users since the tech giant creator will also develop larger and more powerful batteries for its next-generation smartphone models.
However, Apple still hasn’t confirmed the actual release date of its so-called Always-On Display feature. Although this is the case, various reliable rumors and speculations claim that the tech giant manufacturer could release this iPhone 13 enhancement before 2021 ends.
To make this happen, Apple explained that iPhone 13 and other next-generation smartphones should have larger and better-performing batteries. Why? Because Always-On Display feature uses a lot of power from the device it is integrated into.
As of the moment, Apple Watch is taking advantage of the so-called Always-On Display feature. Unlike iPhone 13 and other Apple smartphone models, this wearable device doesn’t consume a lot of power since it doesn’t have lots of apps and other software functionalities, which quickly drains the device’s power.
Although this is the case, Apple still needs to lower its brightness when the advanced feature is activated. Once it is integrated into the latest iPhone 13, smartphone owners can see the important info on its lock screen display, such as time, notifications, date, battery status, and other essential details.
If you own an Apple Watch, you can activate this feature so that you will have an idea of what is coming to iPhone 13 and other next-generation smartphones. Here are all the simple steps you need to follow so that you can turn it on easily;
Activating Apple Watch Always-On Display Feature
The upcoming feature of the latest Apple handset is already offered in various Apple Watch models. As of the moment, Apple Watch Series 5 and Series 6 can display the time and other glanceable information, even when your wrist is down.
The giant handset developer explained that the Always-On Display function is already turned on by default on Apple Watch Series 5 and Series 6. In this mode, the time is always visible, along with your watch face or the most recent active app. To preserve battery life, the display dims when your wrist is down, or by a quick gesture of covering the display with your hand. A wrist raise or tap on the screen brings everything back to full brightness and makes the watch screen active so you can interact with your watch.
