From better battery life to the addition of USB-C, there are a few features that have been topping iPhone users' wish lists for years now. One of the most rumoured enhancements is the inclusion of an always-on display, which is already a huge hit on the Apple Watch. And now, new leaks (courtesy of Apple itself, no less) suggest it might finally happen in 2022.

An always-on display could allow basic information such as the time, date, and notifications to remain on-screen without needing to press the power button. And the latest beta of iOS 16, released this week, reveals that Apple's new iPhone wallpapers appear optimized for the always-on treatment. (Don't fancy waiting?
