The iPhone 13 could include an Always On Display
If you are like Apple and in 2021 you do not know what a AOD display we will tell you: it is a function that keeps part of the screen always on to display the time, notifications and more information. Thanks to this type of screen, it is not necessary to touch the mobile to know what time it is or if you have received a message.
These screens are especially interesting when using OLED technologyas the entire screen remains off except for a few pixels. Samsung has been using this feature for years and many other manufacturers as well. Now Manzana wants to join the party.
It’s not a bad thing that Apple discovered the benefits of ODA in 2021, Although it is curious that it is now when they have realized that their mobiles need it, some 6 years after the first Android phones include it.
A higher energy expenditure that is not as low as they tell you
Indeed, Always On Display screens use more battery than screens without this feature. Keeping a part of the panel always on requires an expense and this is not as minimal as companies say. Since the beginning of technology, it is said that it spends between a 3 and 7% of the battery daily.
The reality is that no matter how well this feature is optimized, you end up spending more. Many manufacturers have stopped including displays with AOD because its own users disabled to save battery.
Optimization may be much better on iPhones than on iPhones. Android mobiles, but it seems a feature doomed to deactivation by users. Being able to save 10 or 15% of battery daily is a lot and the benefits of AOD are not so many as to make up for the lack.
The bad – or good – news is that, for the moment, we are facing a filtration. It is quite interesting and has gained a lot of strength, but Apple has not confirmed anything and we will have to wait until the presentation of the iPhone 13 To confirm.
