Over the weekend we saw a new set of rumors that included predictions about the long-awaited always on screen coming to the iPhone 13. Now a new concept shows how Apple could differentiate its approach to the feature compared to what we have seen in recent years with Android .
Android smartphones have always had on screens for years, and 2021 may be the year we see Apple adopt the feature with the iPhone 13.
This is how Max Weinbach described via EverythingApplePro the ever-ongoing implementation that Apple is working on:
Always-On Display will have minimal adaptability. The current design basically looks like a tinted lock screen. Clock and battery charge are always visible. Alerts appear to appear using a bar and icons. Upon receipt, the alert will appear normally except that the screen will not light up completely. Instead, it will appear exactly as you are used to right now, except dimmed and only temporary.
Today, YouTuber A Better Computer shared a few different concepts for how Apple could offer an always-on-screen iPhone 1
First, the concept includes a “lazy mock up”, “a little less lazy mock up”, “conservative concept”, and finally a look at how one can always look on the screen with widgets.
There is definitely a lot to consider here beyond just the functionality like battery life, privacy and more. Based on Max’s report, Apple is working to keep the feature that is always on the screen more minimal. However, A Better Computer believes that since Apple is years behind Android with this, it will go for a bold implementation.
