The Always-On option, in which the screen switches to a low brightness mode until you "wake" it up, arrived together with the iPhone 14 Pro models that were announced last September.

However, since the launch (which is accompanied by a global shortage), complaints have come from users around the world about significant battery drain.

To find the real culprit, on the YouTube page PhoneBuff they did a comparison, we tested these claims - and came back with answers.

First, we thought to mention that the iOS 16.2 update that was released last month brought with it additional settings for the Always On feature - it will be possible to cancel the

display of the background and notifications

, thus adjusting the display personally when the iPhone is locked,

similar to the feature on Android devices.

So what are the results?

Contrary to claims, after 24 hours of testing, the results showed that the iPhone 14 Pro does not use much battery.

In numbers: the battery drains by 0.8% more every hour in Always-On mode with wallpaper in the background - and by 0.6% without wallpaper.

An important detail to remember is that the screen does go completely dark in certain situations - when the iPhone is lying with the screen facing down, while it is in a pocket or bag, when the "do not disturb" mode is activated, when the iPhone is connected to CarPlay and after the device has not been used for an extended period of time.

In fact, PhoneBuff's testing shows that in the worst-case scenario, Always-On mode can use up to about 20% battery in 24 hours if it's always on.

Another interesting comparison was between the iPhone 14 Pro versus the Galaxy S22 Ultra, in which both finished 24 hours with 84% battery.
