    When your on a phone call, the waveform in the pill area actually detects when both people are talking even at the same time and splits it to two different colors.

      That is indeed very cool, but it should have existed years ago. You cannot tell me we figured out how to make screens that literally roll up like paper before we figured out how to distinguish between 2 different voices through a microphone.

    Overall, I think it's more convenient to change your iPhone every two iPhones that comes after yours to see a worthy difference. When I got my iPhone 6S, I got the X after it and I was amazed, I was spouse to get the iPhone 12 Pro after two years but I got more busy with my MacBook for studying more than the iPhone so I kept the X. now I'm heading for the iPhone 14 Pro! Excited for the 120Hz screen and the camera performance.

    Wonderful episode. Disagree with 2 things:
    1. The reason Apple won't go under-display camera isn't because it's more expensive (Apple will be happy to sell you something more expensive). It's because current tech produces crappy photos, while they know damn well the iPhone's front camera is the world's most popular camera.
    2. They won't withhold the Dynamic Island for too long on the regular models. Reason: it's a software feature that profits from 3rd party developer support, so more adoption will add value to the feature.

      @J I Lightning is slow but also not the way to go for file transfer. Both the latest Wifi and 5G standards provide excellent transfer speeds. AirDrop (based on wifi direct) is also a great option. And none of these options require finding and plugging in cables.

    • J I
      J I 4 days ago

      @h4x0y the issue with portless if that’s the plan and also with being stuck with lightening right now, yet again, is that the data transfer is far to slow. They keep upping the specs of the camera, and for video, whilst keeping the same old limitations for getting the ever increasing size files off. It was annoying a long time ago. I hate to think what it’s like for those shooting at the highest possible quality.

      @Pascal Khazzoum My 2017 OnePlus 5T had it. I also think Sony still keeps it. Sony is also one of the few manufacturers that keep a dedicated Camera button. It would be so cost efficient to remove both the LED and the camera button but they do well to keep them. I believe in Sony, I think they are gonna up their game soon, all they need is better advertising.

    At this point I don't think most people don't update to the new phone every year like they might 10 years ago with how much more expensive they are, so for me the 14 pro is a huge step up from the phone I bought 4 years ago.

    Dynamic island will come to the regular iPhone next year. It’s not a “pro” feature, rather its on the pro first so third party apps have a year of development and the feature can become more fleshed out before brought to the masses.
    Next year the pro line up will gain some additional features/hardware specs to separate it from the regular series.

  • Can7ge7righ7
    Can7ge7righ7 10 days ago +8

    I think they should let the “i-shaped” pill cutout be visible when you use reachability. From what I’ve seen the dynamic island comes down when u use reachability but when reachability is used it keeps the big open pull up there too. Just my thoughts. I get mine tomorrow I’m excited to watch it evolve :)

    I also like the way the dynamic island works. It's not necessary, but it definitely feels useful now. Also, the choice on how to change the notifications so they don't all pop up and you can just have them listed as a number is so nice to avoid distractions during work hours.

      Apple won’t implement that. To them it’s redundant because do you have an entire screen to throw up notifications. You don’t need a light. That was used on older phones back in the day they didn’t have as good of battery life or the technology we have now and definitely didn’t have the number of notifications we have now. All you need to know back then is if you had an email, text message, or phone call. There’s so much more going on nowadays it’s just an outdated feature although I do miss it

    AOD should offer users an option to turn wallpapers off - maybe add an extra line for widgets.
    People think it’s not locked properly because of the dimming feature. The option to remove wallpaper would fix this.

    iOS was designed for reachability since from the start thru their UI of always having menus at the bottom. It was more accentuated in recent versions of the OS by having large title texts at the top and now with iOS 16, which moved its elements on the lockscreen at the bottom.
    Dynamic island implementation is brilliant but I think it contradicts that UI design by having controls available at top. It’s useful though.

  • Mark Tomeh
    Mark Tomeh 10 days ago +8

    The Pixel AOD sometimes shows the wallpaper too, but it switches between that and totally black background, probably to conserve battery. I think the Pixel has the best implementation. I use both OSs btw.

  • SomeRandomGuy
    SomeRandomGuy 10 days ago +37

    Lumias had the best Glance screen (always on) implementation. I could see right away who called, me, small text messages. There was a timer when it shuts of, I usually preferd 15-30 seconds. Then you could wave with hand over the screen to turn on the glance and see the notifications.
    What Apple did is really stupid to me, all because they wanted to be different. But I wouldn't be surprised when android phone manufacturers starts copying this stupidity.

    The brightness is incredible. I had never been outside on a sunny desert day and had full visibility. The thermals are much better as well. It gets hot here and the phone didn't warm up or dim the display. The differences from my old 13 pro are very low, but it is such a well refined model.

  • Stefan Kostic
    Stefan Kostic 10 days ago +32

    You didn't mention Samsung's "show for new notifications" option in Always On Display. A very good option that shows the AOD only when a notification arrives and stays until it is read. It's the same as a notification light.

      1 tap to show
      2 show always
      3 show for new noti
      4 show as scheduled
      Ios should adapt too like option to remove wallpaper for AOD but u knows IOS is always out of options and u have to do as they want
      That's why i changed back to SS after using ip13p for four months
      It was amazing exp byt i didnt like apple extremely closed system like i dont feel i own my phone

    Hey there, I think the iPhone 14 Pro Max looks good and all but…..the dynamic island actually sits further into the screen than the notch. All the fancy labelling does not change the fact that there is still an extended hole punch in the screen of a premium device in 2022. Relabelling it doesn’t change the fact that it is there at all in this day and age. More screen innovation is required screen wise at the very least. Right now the bean counters rule the roost in my opinion, and they are simply innovating in teaspoons fulls rather than in ladles fulls like in Steve Jobs day. I’m sticking with 13 Pro Max at this stage.

    I wonder if dynamic island will become popular with consumers (and thus integrated with developers) and then when apple decides to go notchless will face the customer who picks the cheaper version that still has the dynamic island over the newest phone because they prefer the experience. At the moment the notch isn't integrated into the experience so we wouldn't really see that

  • Ajmain Iqtidar

      @Č Al most people who aren't in the apple ecosystem are already used to it. I use mine all the time but it's off 90% of the time, then a single tap shows the aod and double opens the phone. The problem is battery isn't great as mkb and them has said, and androids don't even get hit as hard as apples since apple wants to have all the screen active.

      It's just worse than androids in almost everyway except in animation (which is very important when it comes to the experience) but it really feels they made it in a way to separate it from android as much as possible. Idk, hopefully they'll make it better. Same way to how I feel about the app drawer being in the back instead of the more convenient swipe up on any screen.

    The cutout has eye catching animations, but it still takes up more screen real estate. When playing ultrawide videos, the 14 pro has the cutout intruding where the older phones don’t.

      You can set a different wallpaper for always on separate from the one you use on your Lock Screen. So if u set the always on wallpaper to black and the Lock Screen wallpaper to a photo it looks really great.

    The iPhone XR had a notch but the screen was still LCD instead of OLED. So besides the ‘notch’ there’s always a difference between the display technology. So maybe the non-pro will never get pro-motion even though they have the dynamic island. Or maybe it’ll only get bumped up to 90hz, or maybe less bright, or maybe the display bezel sizes are different.

    From 9to5Mac:
    Apple released a support document highlighting the Always-On display usage, though we already covered how most of it works here. Now, we’re going to detail when this feature turns off immediately.
    Apple said the Always-On display goes dark when you don’t need it. To save battery life, the display is completely dark on these eight different occasions:
    Your iPhone 14 Pro is face down;
    Your iPhone is in your pocket;
    Sleep Focus is on;
    Low Power Mode is on;
    Your iPhone is connected to CarPlay;
    You’re using Continuity Camera;
    You haven’t used your iPhone for a while;
    Your iPhone detects that you moved away from it when you wear a paired Apple Watch.

    The easy solution to the “pro-motion” on a base model debate, is to just make a 90hz display. 90 still feels smooth, and that would still give the Pro model an advantage.

    Even though I am NOT an Apple person, I think I will finally upgrade my OnePlus 7T that I've had for the past 3 years to this. I still think *hardware* wise, OnePlus beats it hands-down, but the thing's it lacks, mostly support, is what is drawing me back toward Apple (I had an iPhone 7 for 2 years before this phone). It would be nice to be able to use AirDrop, receive high-res images from friends who have iOS, and use facetime. I have had many instances where people's imessage will work, but sms text will not.

    Can you do a sustained screen brightness test between the new iPhone’s and competitors? Anyone that’s flown a drone in the bright sunlight knows how much brightness of an iPhone falls after being outside for very long. I’m wondering if the competition does this also. After about 5 minutes in the Texas Sun the screen of my iPhone 13 and 14 pro is virtually unreadable.

    TBH, I'm really excited for the new always on display and can't wait to finally get my Pro Max. At my job, it'll be a lot easier to just read notifications whenever they pop up instead of having to grab my phone and look at them. It'll essentially become a 3rd monitor but only to display texts, snapchats, espn updates, etc. which is really nice.

    It's not exactly one to one but you can turn off the Samsung S22/1/0 series always on display and have a small glow around the edge of the phone to be seen even when upside down or couple of dots flash around the camera cutout while the screen is completely off and it does have an auto color feature for each icons colors. It under notifications and the brief pop up settings once that's set just turn off always on display and you'll have pretty much what you're talking about.

    The battery issue is not just on iPhone 14 but on previous devices also. Most likely it is due to initial release version of iOS 16, and ideally should be better in coming versions

      Yeah true. My 13 pro max use to last all day without even getting close to low. Downloaded IOS16 and it dies faster. Still not in a sense where I’d call it bad or fast, but definitely noticeable

      I had horrible battery life when I first setup my iPhone 14 Pro Max because it was installing all of the apps and clearly "calibrating" and every new phone it has to re-learn your charging cycle. After a few days of using the phone now the battery lasts all day and I have absolutely no issues. Especially with a sleep focus where it turns the screen completely off when you fall asleep, I forgot to slap on my magsafe charging puck beside my bed one night and the phone didn't even lose 5% battery the entire night! But yes also iOS updates will make the battery life better and more efficient. The Always on display and higher brightness of the display is also taxing on the battery, so if you're like me and you like to keep all the cool features on and also max out the brightness of the display you will obviously get less battery life.
      But I've literally never had issues with my phone dying. I don't think my iPhone 13 Pro Max died a SINGLE TIME in the entire year I owned it, because I have a 3-in-1 magsafe charging pad on my office desk that charges my phone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at the same time. So if I'm in my office I just lay the devices on there to charge. In my car I have a magsafe wireless charging dock where I just slap the phone onto it and it charges while I'm driving and even can separate from the dock and it becomes like a Magsafe charging puck where you can still use the phone and charge. Then finally I have a magsafe charging puck next to my bed for when I go to sleep. The closest I've come to my battery dying was maybe 13% battery where I was away from chargers for an entire day and I just turned on Low power mode and it kept my phone alive until I got to a charger. You could also purchase the magsafe battery pack if you're ever going to be away from a charger for more than 6-8 hours.

    You can turn off Always On Display and manually control down the brightness if it is to distracting and to save on battery life. However I do agree, it's a solid battery but expected more as I am getting a day and about 6 hours the next day. But I do have AOD on. I also wish there was an option to turn off dynamic island in preferences just to get some screen estate back but I do like the feature however there is still massive room for it to grow particularly when 3rd parties to get in on the action. My issue is I keep having to restart the phone as I am getting obscene of system data build up 300gb+ (not sure where it is coming from) almost taking up all 512gb and I have only come from a 256gb iPhone XS which carried over 175gb. keeping an eye on this.

    Now I wonder if they’ll do this for the MacBook pros. It’d make sense… now that we’re all used to the notch, they remove it! At the same time, if they do that, they’ll be killing the first gen of the m1 MBP which it’d be even more frustrating for everyone who bought one… my idea of the notch was that it was kind of a signature. Now when off the iphone pros look like as many other phones out there… without the notch! Yes… the software makes it cool but I just think it lost their signature.

    I’ve got the 14 pro Max, the pill was cool for 5 minutes, but now I just find it annoying. 90% of the time the pill is bigger than it needs to be due to software, like extending the pill on both sides with a lock icon in to tell me the phone is locked. By due to software, I don’t mean filling in the gap, but getting wider either side.

    Let me say something and it feels absurd but what if Apple didn't want people to use its AOD because AOD drains battery which is not good for their battery performance claims.
    Also they were getting backlash for the past 3 years as they switched to amoled but still didn't have the feature. So they decided we will give the feature but will make it in such a way that people won't use it. Hence we save our battery backup claims and avoid backlash, a win win.

    I know it’s technically a “hack” and not really a fix. But I just use a completely black background for my night time wallpaper. All it shows is a black screen and the time (+widgets). I don’t use any focus modes so it stays on. Because it’s all black, no pixels are really being used so it solves the battery issue. And it solves the issue of having too bright a display at night.

    Coming from Pixel 5a (to 14 pro)-
    I miss fingerprint reader dearly. So many times I'm at a stop-light or laying in bed, and I don't want to lift my phone up or turn my head to open.
    Dynamic Island just means my grubby fingerprints are all over the front camera area 10x more.
    I turned off the always-on display.
    I didn't like the swipe-and-hold app-switching method on pixel and I don't like it here. The old iphone button was better.
    Rounded edges & frosted metal are both preferable to this, but they did that already so they had to do somethign else for differentiation.
    Should still have physical SIM.
    I really hope the camera wins me over because at this point it is the last thing beyond the Apple ecosystem that can.

    Pre-ordered a 14 Pro, since my 13 Pro [maybe] will be going to a family member... I love the 6.1" form factor but I lost 11% battery overnight due to always on display... and with AOD turned off overnight I still lost 3-4% (13 Pro was 1% at most) and I'm down 25% throughout the day over the 13 Pro... I turned off AOD because I don't really like it, and now I'm only down 15-20% over the 13 Pro during the day... The 14 Pro is power hungry, probably the A16... Love iOS 16 battery percentage display but I turned that off as well... it got depressing lol. Now I'm faced with keeping my 13 Pro or returning the 14 Pro and getting a 14 Pro Max, but I really don't like the added real estate in my pocket. Advice? As always, you guys rock =]

      Hopefully better updates coming soon and hopefully the battery will optimise well down the road after a certain usage in due time. Same problem with Samsung and pixel battery I’d assume. Takes time for the battery to adapt how u use it daily.

    Apple needs to go all out to force the battery life. If that means on display or bringing the brightest screen to an iPhone, do it. Don’t make incremental updates each year but think you are still getting a good battery out of your phone because you are not. I wish they would go all out so they can focus on getting the battery right. It’s still not right coming from an x to an13 pro

  • CuriouStan
    CuriouStan 10 days ago

    Always on display on an iPhone looks okay, it's not awesome. Several things I do like about my Samsung is the plethora of options for the AOD. For instance I can set it to only show between the hours of 7a-9:47p (or whatever time I want) I can choose to have the AOD only show when I lift the phone for a certain amount of seconds/time, I can have it show if I tap the screen, or I can have it show only when I get a notification. I can set the brightness level of the AOD, I can choose different colors for the clock/calendar or whatever widgets, all the notifications show in a flat color. I can have a picture background, I can set a gif, or motion photo. You can keep it super simple but there's just so many options. And especially if you use Good Lock, that's a whole nother level of AOD customizations. I do hope that Apple copies the dynamic Island since Samsung's exclusive notifications actually come up at the top like a little long pill anyway just they don't have interaction other than taking you to the app that it notified you about. That would be great to have that implementation around the small pinhole camera. I will take fingerprint and the face unlock implementation any day Samsung has just to have that small pinhole.

    The problem with a lot of ‘features’ are a lot of them are evolution for the sake of evolution. Right now there is pressure on Apple (a single company) to put in all the features of Android softwares and manufacturers (multiple companies). AOD under screen fingerprint reader are some things that people want in iPhones just because they are in other phones and they sound ‘cool’. Under screen fingerprint scanner is a prime example. Having used them in the Note and the S20FE they are a step backwards compared to the physical sensor on the Flip4 imo. Its faster and has more chances of working than the under screen scanner. FaceID has become much better in most cases especially in everyday use. Prime example for me is when I am in the kitchen and my hand is wet and no fingerprint scanner can unlock my phone.
    I feel apple taking a slower and more measured approach to features not only helps bring good features that work well but also weeds out ‘cool’ things that nobody will use more than once

      @Poradis Kenneth Vinyaratn that’s correct however the phone still latches to 4G even though the signal is very poor with no data throughput. For example, where I work in a rural location there’s 1 bar of 4G and full reception on 3G. We leave 3G selected on our phones so voice and data works (might be a bit slower but it’s more reliable).
      This can also pose as a safety risk too however lucky we have landline phones as a backup.

But I watch a lot of Flash-Player throughout the day. But back to always on display doesn’t bother me because I flip my phone over. Im still scared from cracking the screen on my 3G. I learned the hard way. But I have sleep focus. I have a work focus. Drive focus. And me time focus which is the only one I set manually. So… yeah I’m glad I got the 14PM coming from the 12PM.

    The very first thing I noticed after updating my 12 pro to ios16 is the battery change. It seems to charge slower and dies quicker. It was so bad that I searched if anyone else had the similar issue.

    I'm just going to wait for the 15. My 12 Pro Max is still amazing and I want to wait to see if USB-C will be in the US iPhones. Which I sure hope it is because I have so many USB-C cables now.

    I wish the AOD was darker. I also wonder if screen burn in could occur if you kept the same wallpaper displayed for an extended amount of time🤔 we'll just have to wait and see

    I wish they made an actual always on display where only the dynamic island is on/active. And notifications can appear in it

    I think apple took a bit too far the terms "Always On Display", by litteraly letting the whole screen always on at any time. I think Apple is gonna make an update of that AOD by letting people customize it and get rid of the wallpaper or the widget for example
