Here’s how the iPhone 13 could overshadow all of its competition

Written by mac

A new rumor suggests that Apple is working on a screen that has a refresh rate of up to 240Hz.

The iPhone 13 won’t launch for a while, but there are already plenty of rumors circulating about Apple’s next flagship. And among those rumors, there is one suggesting that with the next-generation iPhone, the Cupertino company may finally switch to high refresh rates.
As a reminder, the higher this rate, the smoother the animations. And for years the industry standard was 60Hz. But lately, Android smartphone makers have started adopting higher rates at 90Hz or 120Hz.
The iPhone 12, on the other hand, still has an OLED display with a rate of 60 Hz. However, rumors suggest that among the new features of the iPhone 13, or at least some versions, there could be a rate of higher refreshment. In fact, sources even suggest that if Apple has not yet adopted the rate of 120 Hz on the iPhone 12, it is only because of the autonomy which could have been reduced.
What if Apple created a surprise by presenting an iPhone with a rate of 240 Hz?
As I mentioned above, currently most premium Android smartphones have either 90Hz or 120Hz displays. And you’d expect Apple to eventually follow suit.
Nevertheless, according to a new source, Apple could also go even further by offering an iPhone 13 (or a variant of it) with a variable refresh rate of up to 240 Hz. This would allow the Cupertino company to position your smartphone in front of those of competitors.
This new rumor is relayed by the Pocketnow.com site. According to him, who cites a patent that would have been spotted by Patently Apple, the Cupertino company would have imagined a screen with a variable rate. Thus, depending on the needs, this technology would allow rates of 60 Hz, 120 Hz, 180 Hz, or 240 Hz.
Variable refresh rates save energy. Indeed, while increasing the refresh rate allows for smooth animations, it also consumes more energy. And in order to limit this consumption, some devices use only activate the high rates when necessary.
Otherwise, it is important to remember that at the moment this is unofficial information. And therefore, caution is always in order. On the other hand, a patent does not indicate that technology will be used by Apple. Nevertheless, it can give us an idea of ​​the research carried out by the engineers of the firm.
It should also be noted that Apple could one day offer a screen with this rate of 240 Hz on the iPad and not on the iPhone. In fact, on the iPad Pro, the company already offers the ProMotion feature, thanks to which the screen refresh rate can reach 120 Hz.
iPhone 13: What to Expect?
Other rumors about the iPhone 13 include those that point to a possible return of Touch ID. Indeed, facial recognition having shown its limits during the pandemic (incompatible with wearing a mask), Apple would like to equip its next devices with a fingerprint scanner. However, if this module was previously integrated into a physical button, the iPhone 13’s scanner could well be integrated into the display.
Otherwise, on the design side, the iPhone 13 shouldn’t be much different from the iPhone 12. However, Apple would design devices with slightly smaller notches.
