Apple iOS 16.2 users can customize Always-On Display mode on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Learn how.
This year, Apple introduced the Always-On Display feature for the first time on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, more customization has always been a feature that most iPhone users demand. Finally, with the release of the iOS 16.2 update, Apple added the customization feature to the Always-On Display (AOD). To make it more like an AOD feature of an Android smartphone, you will be able to remove wallpaper with this update. Previously, iPhone 14 Pro users had to see a dimmed version of the wallpaper, now they can choose to see the clock or the time. It looks cleaner and much less obtrusive.
Are you looking forward to applying these changes to your iPhone? Here’s how to remove wallpaper from the always-on screen on iPhone 14 Pro models. Make sure you’ve updated your iPhone to iOS 16.2.
How to adjust the always-on screen of your iPhone
First open the Settings app on your iPhone and then open the Display & Brightness option.
In the display menu, find the Always-on display option, and then tap it.
Now, you will find three toggle options versus the previous option that could only turn the AOD on and off.
Among three, the first option is Show Wallpaper to allow your iPhone to display a dimmed version of your lock screen wallpaper on the AOD, just like the version you were witnessing before the release of iOS 16.2.
Another option is Show notifications. If you disable it, you will not get any popup banner from your apps in AOD option. This will make your AOD have no notifications.
And if you turn off both notifications and wallpaper options, this will leave just the date in always-on mode along with any widgets you’ve added.
And that’s it! This will remove the wallpaper from the AOD option.
Who can use the always-on display option?
Unfortunately, this always-on-top feature is limited to iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users. That means that apart from these iPhones, no one else can test this feature.
