How to Enable Always-on Display on iPhone 13 and Pro Max?

When everyone saw the most anticipated Always On Display feature at Apple’s fall event of the year, all iOS geeks were eager to have this feature on their older iPhones. It has been ten years since iPhone users saw this feature on Android phones and they would like to have Always-on Display on iPhone 13.

Even since Apple introduced the Always-on Display at the Apple event in September 2022, many users have been looking for a way to enable Always-on Display on iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max models.

Many users also think that Apple would bring an Always-on Display with iOS 16 and Always-on Display for iPhone 13 and older iPhones.

But the sad thing is that Always-on Display doesn’t support iPhone 13 or other older iPhones. Apple’s latest iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models lack the Always-on Display feature.

Why Doesn’t Always-on Display Support iPhone 13?

Apple only designed Always-on Display for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. Both devices feature the latest A16 Bionic and OLED LTPO ProMotion display with adaptive refresh rates as high as 120 Hz and as low as 1 Hz.

How to Enable Always-On Display on iPhone 13 and Pro Max?

There is no way to enable or disable Always-on Display on iPhone 13 as the device does not have the latest chip and sufficient refresh rate.

Will an always-on display come to iPhone 13?

No, the always-on display is not coming to iPhone 13 or other older iPhone models.

Which iPhones get an always-on display?

Only the latest iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have an always-on display.
