Always-On Display Support for iPhone 14 Pro Models Coming with iOS 16: Mark Gurman 



Always-On Display Support for iPhone 14 Pro Models Coming with iOS 16: Mark Gurman 

According to a report, iOS 16 will feature always-on displays for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The next iOS version is reported to have future compatibility for an always-on lock screen, which will unveil during the WWDC 2022 keynote next week. Apple’s iOS 16 is also believed to offer new social network-like capabilities and revamped Messages.

The Cupertino business is expected to show off its improved iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS during the WWDC keynote and the new iOS version.

In his newsletter Power On, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that iOS 16 would contain future support for an always-on lock screen, which will enable the iPhone to drop its frame rate and show “glanceable information.”

In contrast, the screen is inactive similar to the newest Apple Watch models. It’s thought that the support will only be available on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Earlier this year, Apple was rumored to provide always-on screens on the iPhone 13 Pro versions, but the firm did not follow through.

Gurman also indicated in his email that iOS 16 would be a “major improvement” for iPhone owners. It’s said to contain new Messages Health applications and notification enhancements.

Apple is said to be introducing new audio messaging experiences in Messages.

The upcoming iOS version also contains significant lock screen improvements, like wallpapers and widget-like functionality.

Apple is anticipated to enhance the software experience on the iPad with the introduction of iPadOS 16 at this year’s WWDC, in addition to the iPhone upgrade. According to Gurman, the next iPadOS will bring significant improvements to windowing and multitasking.

Apple is also expected to deliver a watchOS update with a list of enhancements to the Apple Watch’s “day-to-day operation and navigation.”

The company’s Health app is also said to enhance health monitoring on the iPhone and Apple Watch; however, it is unlikely to be transferred to the iPad and Mac.

Similarly, Apple TV owners should anticipate some changes, as Gurman said that a future tvOS version would include additional smart-home integrations. Users of Macs, on the other hand, may see System Preferences redesigned to look like the Settings app on iOS.

Apple is unlikely to announce any new iPhone models at WWDC 2022 since the iPhone 14 series might be announced later in September.

On the other hand, Gurman projected that Apple would unveil its new MacBook Air with M2 CPUs at the developer conference.

According to Gurman, developers have told Gurman that Apple staff are increasingly adopting next-generation MacBook Air models with their applications.

Along with the new MacBook Air alternatives, the writer earlier said that Apple would be working on improving the high-end Mac mini, the 24-inch Mac, and a new low-end MacBook Pro.

On June 6, the WWDC keynote will be streamed live. The developer conference will begin after the keynote and last through June 10.
