The screen of the iPhone 13 Pro hides something, always on display?

This is the small failure of the iPhone 13 Pro

As we indicated previously, some iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max users have detected a small problem with the screen of their devices. East it is not a serious failure, but it is understandable that it can be annoying for some and therefore must be solved soon. The problem in question is that when you proceed to unlock the iPhone with the screen locked, for a few thousandths of a second the screen brightness is much dimmer to be displayed with normal brightness afterwards.

This is something that we have tried to record on video, however we have not been able to do it in such a way that it is appreciable. But, as we said, in person you can see how several users have already reported. The device works perfectly and little or nothing affects performance or consumption. its interim solution It could be to format the equipment, according to what some subscribers have told us, who indicate that after doing so the failure disappears. In any case we insist that iOS 15.0.1 it could be the next version of the system that kills these and other bugs.

Did Apple scrap the always-on display feature?

The Apple Watch Series 5, Series 6 and Series 7 offer a functionality called “Always On Display”, which allows the device to always display content on the screen even when not in use. Of course, with the dimmed brightness and much duller colors that favor not excessively consuming the battery. It is achieved thanks to LTPO panels that move with a 1 Hz refresh rate.

Precisely the iPhone 13 Pro incorporate panels that, for the first time in an iPhone, reach 120 Hz refresh rate, which adapts to the circumstance. And based on this and the LTPO technology, one of the rumors that gained more force was the fact that the “Always On Display” function was going to be available, being able to display some content on the screen permanently with low consumption. However, this did not end up being announced in the official presentation.

It does not seem that it will end up arriving not even in future updates, but who knows if the bug we discussed could be related in some way to this possibility. Perhaps the company was testing it until the last minute and for some reason they ended up discarding it. It would not be the first time that Apple tests functions like these and they are finally deactivated via software, as happened with the iPhone 12 and its refresh rate of 120 Hz that was discarded at the last minute.
