iOS 16: “Always on” screen planned for Pro models

The lock screen of the 2022 iPhones will apparently no longer have to be switched off in the future. And there are more leaks from the next operating system.

 iOS 16:

Apple is apparently preparing a new type of lock screen for its iPhone. For the first time, individual models of the smartphone are said to have a constantly active screen, which has so far only been known from the newer models of the manufacturer’s computer watch, the Apple Watch. The first indications of this are said to be in iOS 16, the next iPhone operating system that Apple plans to present next Monday at the WWDC 2022 developer conference.

Already planned for the iPhone 13

How Mark Gurman, Bloomberg’s Apple Journalist, writes in its most recent newsletter, the group had an “Always on” -Display already planned for the iPhone 13, which was released in 2021. The refresh rate is greatly reduced, which consumes little power and still makes it possible to display important information – such as the time or new notifications.

Why Apple didn’t succeed in integrating the function last year is not clear. According to Gurman’s sources, Apple will do this in the fall, but only for two of the four planned new iPhones. The always-on screen is said to only be on the “iPhone 14 Pro” and the “iPhone 14 Pro Max” in the process – should Apple carry out the implementation. The models codenamed “D73” and “D74” are the most expensive of the new year, which also a new front camera module (“double pill”) and a 48-megapixel camera on the back and a new A16 SoC. Furthermore, there is a satellite emergency call function in the room.

More iOS 16-Features

Gurman continues to report on possible innovations in iOS 16 (codename: “Sydney”). The lock screen itself should be revised. It is said that widgets will become interactive and you will be able to use wallpapers that themselves have widget-like functions. Gurman repeated information already made about improvements in notifications and in the iMessage and Health App. The news application is to receive better audio functions in the future and become more of a “social network”

In iPadOS 16, on the other hand, is supposed to have a window control for the first time – that is Ability to no longer only use apps in full screen and limited multitasking views, which could allow for a more Mac-like experience.
