New Apple IOS Beta Gives You More Control Over The IPhone’s Always-on Display

AOD (1)

iOS Beta Update:

ios Beta – iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max owners could be getting more control over their phone’s always-on display. The latest developer beta for the upcoming iOS 16.2 includes toggles that let you hide the wallpaper and notifications while using the feature, according to reports from MacRumors and 9to5Mac.

iOS Beta Update – Always on Display:

Turning off both with always-on activated will make it so you just see a clock and your lockscreen widgets when your phone is locked, according to an image tweeted by 9to5Mac editor Chance Miller. On the currently shipping version of iOS, it’s all or nothing; you can have the always-on display that’ll show a wallpaper and notifications, or you can turn it off, leaving your phone’s screen blank when it’s locked and asleep, the way iPhones always have worked.

Since its launch, the iPhone 14 Pro’s always-on display has struck some as a little odd. While there are surely some people that enjoy having their wallpaper always glowing at them (with accurate colors, despite the dimmed appearance), a lot of reviewers found it to be a bit distracting.


It seems like Apple’s heard that feedback and is working on making that a reality, though it is worth noting that a feature showing up in a beta isn’t 100 percent confirmation that it’ll ship in the final OS. Fingers crossed that it does, though, and that the next feature on Apple’s to-do list is an option to switch the tap / long-press behavior for apps in the Dynamic Island.
