YouTube video reveals always-on screen battery consumption on iPhone 14 Pro

A YouTube video recently revealed just how much strain the always-on display can put on an iPhone 14 Pro’s battery.

PhoneBuff uploaded a YouTube video testing the always-on display with the background on and off. With the wallpaper turned off, the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery drained at 0.6 percent per hour, while the drain was 0.8 percent per hour with the wallpaper turned on. PhoneBuff also compared the consumption on the iPhone 14 Pro next to a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in the video. It turned out that both devices showed the same drain.

Before iOS 16.2, iPhone 14 Pro users couldn’t customize always-on aspects such as showing lock notifications and wallpapers. A disabled wallpaper makes the screen completely dark except for the date, clock, and any widgets set on the lock screen. Notifications are visible if they are also allowed to be displayed.

The full video is available to watch on PhoneBuff’s official YouTube channel.
