How to turn off Always-on Display at night on iPhone 14 Pro

The Always-on Display is a nifty new feature on iOS that helps a lot in various ways, but it does consume some battery all through the night when you might not even need it. Worse, it’s very, very distracting, too, at night. If you are looking for a way to turn off the Always-on Display on your iPhone 14 Pro at night, then here’s all you need to know about it. 

How to turn off Always-on Display on iPhone 14 Pro at night

Use the relevant section below to help you along the process depending on your preferred method. Let’s get started. 

Method 1: Use the Sleep Focus Mode

Now tap and select Sleep

This will activate the Sleep focus mode on your iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max, which should turn off Always-on Display every time you lock your device. 

You can also automate your Sleep focus mode to automatically turn off Always-on Display on your iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max at night. Use the steps below to help you schedule your Sleep Focus mode on your iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max.
