The upcoming highest-end iPhone 14 Pro models will feature comparatively larger batteries to compensate for the power consumption of the always-on display.
In the latest edition of his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman explained that Apple will include larger battery capacities in this year’s Pro iPhone models for a slightly longer battery life owing to a major inclusion of the always-on display.
For the first time, Apple will add the new and highly-anticipated functionality on the iPhone years after including it in the Apple Watch starting with the Series 5 in September 2019.
The iPhone 14 Pro’s always-on display mode will always display some important details such as date, time, and selected widgets, and the brief look of the new feature was recently showcased in iOS 16 Beta updates, which also includes the customized and darker version wallpapers.
It is also strongly expected that there will be a new OLED panel on the 2022 “Pro” iPhone models, which has a variable refresh rate that goes up to 120Hz and go as low as 1Hz as compared to 10Hz on the iPhone 13 Pro models.
The lowest refresh rate will feature mainly due to showing static information on the always-on display and this time, it is speculated that only iPhone 14 Pro models will be powered by the greatest A16 Bionic chip.
Apple will officially introduce the iPhone 14 lineup and the Apple Watch Series 8 along with the all-new Apple Watch Pro model, likely the new AirPods Pro at the “Far out” Apple Event on September 7.
