When will the standard iPhone get a high-swipe? Fruit fans will have to wait another two years
Apple first introduced ProMotion technology with the iPhone 13 Pro Max back in 2021, and it was exclusive to the Pro models. As we get closer to the launch of the iPhone 15 this autumn, it's only natural to wonder if ProMotion will be available across the range.
However, it was previously revealed that the two entry-level iPhone 15 models would not only not feature a 120Hz refresh rate, but would also not have an LPTO display, meaning that both models would not support the ProMotion feature and the Always-on Display feature. However, Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, recently said that Apple will extend ProMotion to standard iPhone models within two years.
The iPhone 13 Pro model, due in 2021, will be able to reduce the screen refresh rate to 10Hz, while the iPhone 14 Pro model, released last year, will be able to achieve an adaptive refresh rate range from 1Hz to 120Hz.
In 2025, the entire iPhone lineup will feature an LPTO display with ProMotion adaptive refresh rate, which allows the system to adjust the refresh rate based on what is displayed on the screen for a smoother experience, according to the iPhone specifications revealed.
The analyst also speculated on when Apple will introduce under-screen Face ID and a camera in future iPhones. Previous sources close to the matter claimed that Apple will introduce under-screen Face ID in the iPhone 16 Pro model in 2024, and under-screen Face ID and an under-screen front-facing camera in the iPhone 18 Pro model in 2026.
According to a new report from The Elec, given the current state of smartphone manufacturing processes, Apple should have no major difficulties in ensuring that external light can penetrate the display and enter the technology needed for the TrueDepth camera system.
Interestingly, the foreign media had also claimed that Apple could bring the under-screen Face ID to the entry-level iPhone range in 2025, and the under-screen camera to the Pro range in 2026. It's not clear how credible this speculation is, but it's not stopping people from looking forward to both technologies.
Elsewhere, it can be confirmed that the entry-level iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models will be equipped with the same A16 chip as the iPhone 14 Pro this year, while the iPhone 15 Pro series will be upgraded to a new generation A17 chip; the image will also be upgraded to 48 megapixels, and the iPhone 15 Pro series will also use the periscope lens, which is a welcome addition.
The colour palette also includes a new deep red, dark pink and light blue, as well as the classic gold, dark sky grey and silver, with plenty of options to choose from.
