There are few add ons that were not revealed by Apple in the WWDC event. They are likely to be announced at the time of iOS 16 release. One such is Always-on display. It is speculated to be coming to iPhones 2022, at least to the new iPhone 14 series. It is not sure whether it will be an iOS 16 feature or iPhone 14 feature.
Display Supply Chain Consultants CEO Ross Young while replying to a query has replied “expecting” to Apple adopting an LPTO display.

The 2021 iPhone 13’s OLED display falls to 10Hz when not in use.
