Apple will again disappoint with the display in non-pro iPhone 16
This decision by Apple has been a topic of discussion since the release of the iPhone 15 series, which also included a 60Hz refresh rate. Apple is not upgrading the refresh rate in its non-Pro iPhones despite the Dynamic Island Design being available in its recently introduced models.
Leaks from multiple sources, including South Korean tech site Naver and Twitter leaker @Tech_Reve, have revealed that the iPhone 16 series will not see any improvement in this matter. According to display analyst Ross Young, Apple may only offer high-refresh-rate screens in its base models until 2025. According to rumors, the iPhone 16 series is expected to include a 6.12-inch display in the standard model and a 6.69-inch display in the Plus variant. Apart from this, the Pro model is expected to have a slightly larger screen with 120Hz refresh rate.
This decision by Apple is quite surprising, because brands like Samsung and Google have already adopted high refresh rates in their models, including budget variants like Pixel 7a. At the same time, some Motorola smartphones also offer 144Hz refresh rate display in the mid-budget segment. The 60Hz refresh rate in premium models like the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus makes them stand out in the current smartphone market. While the 60Hz refresh rate isn’t bad, it’s far lower than the standard found in recent flagship devices.
Upgrading the refresh rate may impact cost and battery life. However, this remains a point of contention for users who expect a better and more responsive experience in newer models. As companies are using smoother and more dynamic displays. Apple’s use of a 60Hz refresh rate in its upcoming iPhones could be seen as lagging behind its competitors.
