iPhone 12 Pro Might Ship With A 60Hz Display Instead Of 120Hz Due To Supply Chain Constraints

There has been a ton of talk about whether the iPhone 12 Pro will ship with a 120Hz display, or not. While there was originally plenty of hope that the fancy display would be in place for September, that now looks less likely.

Display analyst Ross Young and leaker Jon Prosser are further muddying the water right now.

According to Young, Apple is struggling to get the required 120Hz display driver ICs in order to offer the feature in the iPhone 12 Pro. That means that the company has two options – launch at 60Hz, or wait for 120Hz parts to be ready. Young reckons the former is most likely.

It’s worth noting that Apple exec. Luca Maestri has already said that this year’s iPhones won’t be ready for their usual September launch window. Could that be because the decision to wait for 120Hz driver ICs has already been made?

Leaker Jon Prosser suggests that might be the case, saying that there is still a chance that 120Hz could come. In a new YouTube video, Prosser said that “120Hz is working just fine, with a manual toggle in settings on the ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro Max.”

That doesn’t necessarily mean that the feature will be available as a launch product, however. It’s possible Apple does have it working, but the lack of parts could still kill the feature this time around.

We’ll find out for sure exactly what’s happening within a matter of weeks, but it’s difficult to believe that Apple hasn’t already made its decision. Especially with production set to kick off soon and production of marketing materials and paraphernalia surely beginning, too.
