The iPhone 15 Pro Max comes with an Always On Display that keeps your lock screen visible at all times. While this can be useful to quickly glance at the time and notifications, it can also drain battery life. If you want to turn off Always On Display to conserve battery or find it distracting, follow these simple steps.

What is Always On Display?

The Always On Display keeps the lock screen dimly lit even when the iPhone 15 Pro Max is not actively being used.
