When the wallpaper option is disabled, the phone will switch to a black screen while in AOD mode. Users will still see the time, date and any widgets they have set. This approach which is the default option on most Android devices and should result in improved battery endurance for iPhone 14 Pro series users. Toggling notifications off will further reduce the clutter on the AOD screen and will just show the time, date and widgets.

The official iOS 16.2 Beta 3 is now available for testers and comes in at 679MB. It contains various bug fixes and improvements which you can check out in the official release notes here.
