One of the major features that Apple introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro lineup is the addition of the Always-On display. While Android smartphones have rocked the functionality for a while now, Apple took its sweet time to offer its own rendition. However, it remains to be seen how much impact the Always-On display has on the battery life. Scroll down for more details on the Always-On display battery drain test on your iPhone 14 Pro models.

Apple added the functionality to customize the contents of the Always-On display on the iPhone 14 Pro models with the release of iOS 16.2. Users can now enable or disable the wallpaper and notifications on the Lock screen when the Always-On display is enabled, and the screen is dimmed. YouTuber PhoneBuff conducted a test that took into account whether enabling or disabling the wallpaper for the Always-On display has an impact on the overall battery life of the iPhone 14 Pro.
It was discovered in the test that enabling the wallpaper for the Always-On display consumes 0.8 percent battery per hour. In contrast, disabling the wallpaper for the Always-On display consumes 0.6 percent of the battery per hour. Surprisingly, disabling the Always-On display altogether does not show any signs of battery loss for a specific period of time.
PhoneBuff also compared the iPhone 14 Pro's Always-On display with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Unlike the iPhone, the clock would move across the screen on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, possibly to avoid the risks of screen burn-in. Both smartphones consumed the same amount of battery life with the Always-On display enabled without the wallpaper - falling down to 84 percent in 24 hours.
