The new iPhone 13 models are getting a higher display refresh rate that will mean smoother performance for users, experts say.
Apple’s ProMotion technology can accelerate the display refresh rate to 120Hz for video or drop it down to a lower rate for still images and text to conserve battery life. While it’s been available on iPads for a while, this marks the first time Apple has brought ProMotion to the iPhone.
“Higher refresh rates offer a much better user experience,” tech blogger Patrick Sinclair told Lifewire in an email interview. “There’s a palpable difference between the standard 60hz and a 120hz screen.”
