Knowing how to turn off the always-on display on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is helpful for anyone looking to save battery life or simply not sold on the need for their display to never shut off.
While the iPhone 14 Pro Max battery life wowed us, the iPhone 14 Pro battery life took a massive step back in our tests this year, so owners of the smaller Pro may be looking for any potential power-pinching processes.
Whether battery life is a concern for you or not, you still might consider powering down the display simply to avoid having to always look at it. Unlike Android's implementation of an always-on display, Apple has gone for simply a dimmer version of the normal lock screen. It can be distracting if you leave it charging on your desk or bedside. Apple also doesn't give you the option to control the brightness of the always-on lock screen and some find it too bright for certain environments.
Regardless of the reason, if you find yourself wanting to turn off the always-on display on your iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max then you've come to the right place.
