Recently it seemed to have been leaked that Apple would carry the “ProMotion” banner to the iPhone as well, as many users have long been demanding that iPhone panels catch up with high-end rivals in terms of refresh rates.
Apparently by 2022, when the iPhone 14 is expected to arrive, all iPhone devices launched will mount an OLED panel with refresh rates of 120Hz. Thus Apple will be implementing this technology in all its iPhones without exceptions at the price level, did you expect something like this?
Meanwhile, from TheElec point out that this 2021 will only see the arrival of the 120Hz ProMotion technology the iPhone 13 in its “premium” range version, that is, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, while the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will maintain an OLED panel but in this case without refresh rates as high as its big brother. According to the source, the information comes from the manufacturing departments of LG, which in theory assembles much of the OLED panels of the iPhone. Curious that Apple is going to opt to keep the ProMotion version only for the “Pro” versions during the iPhone 13.
We are not clear at this point how Apple will be able to limit the ProMotion feature between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, we do not know if there will be differences at the hardware level or simply the Cupertino company will simply make software restrictions, a peculiarity that would not be neither the first nor the last time it does in order to “cut” capabilities to its lower-cost devices. In any case, many users are not taking into account the impact that the refresh rate will have on the autonomy of the device, will they end up disabling it? Everything points to yes.
