    No, there isn’t. We never stated there would be one in iOS 13.

    Love, Apple

    I'm disappointed that they haven't magically increased the iPhone's battery capacity with this update, as well!

    Briefly trying a Pixel a while ago, I’d love the always on display too.

    If such a feature comes, they will make it exclusive to the new iPhone. Apple doesn't give features like that away for free.

    It’s embarrassing that they’re not including this feature on OLED displays

    Probably not until they roll out phones with micro LED

    It baffles me that this isn’t a feature yet, especially with the OLED screens. Maybe it will be in iOS 23?

    Agreed. Apple wants consumers to buy new phones with exclusive features.

    You want an always-on display on a screen technology that notoriously suffers from burn-in? Genius.

    I've never seen AOD burn in on any Samsung phone, including my own S7... the pixels shift throughout the day so they're never static. And battery life is way better doing AOD on OLED over LCD.

    And when Apple introduce it on the iPhone 11 with the same screen, you’ll lap it up.

    OLED burned screens. Eventually OLED will be replaced but for now to have shadow's covering your new screen would make people upset.

    It’s just a temporary non fix until the next tech. I am happy that they kept it off the pro 11 this year.

    Waste of battery life. Plus they just want you to buy an Apple Watch instead.

    I tried AOD on the XS Max with Jailbreak and after a while i found it kind of useless. it was cool for the first day or so but then it was just meh.... Plus it gave me slight anxiety to have the screen constantly on... .I know there was very minuscule battery drain with the OLED but still something about it felt off.... Perhaps because I was used to so many years of a black screen idk.

    Now you have.

    I've seen many burn in displays on Samsungs. Pixel shift doesn't happen. This is why I can't understand why anyone would want an always on OLED display. Or any display for that matter. Burn in.

    That burn in isn’t related to AOD, nor is it typical of newer OLED technology.

    That burn in has nothing do with AOD.

    They are trying not to copy Samsung, probably.

    I'm confused. The screen will stay on as long as you're using it or watching something. Why would you want your screen to stay on when you're not using your phone?

    Technically the display is always on, it just has all of the pixels turned off. This is why you can tap the display and it lights up, while LCDs actually fully turn off and require a button. I think?

    What is newer? I’ve seen S7, 8 and 9 with burn in. So maybe S10? Seems typical to me. How many devices do you get to see and use on a regular basis? Myself, I get to see and use over 200. A small sampling of a much larger whole but more than most.

    You can’t see the burn in because it’s on a lighter background. Throw up a darker background and it’s there. I assure you.



    Either way, you’re free to have an always on display. I prefer not to.

    And then people without an OLED display would say “why aren’t we getting that?!”. Or if they did get it, they’d complain about the battery.
