iPhone 15 Might Get The Dynamic Island, But Won’t Have AOD Or 120Hz Support
Apple’s iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are both expected to benefit from the new Dynamic Island, borrowing the feature from the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max. But those hoping that the models would also benefit from other Pro features are set to be disappointed.
A new report claims that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus won’t get the same ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate support, nor support for an Always On Display.
That report comes via “yeux1122” on the Korean Naver blog, and as the machine-translated text suggests, the LTPO display needed for 120Hz support isn’t going to be part of the non-Pro experience.
Apple has already completed preparations for the delivery of the iPhone 15 series diff panel to domestic companies, and it is said that it will confirm details sooner or later and prepare for mass production. What is confirmed here is that only the pro series supports the LTPO 120 refresh rate, and the basic general plus model does not have that content in the requirements .
Display analyst Ross Young had previously suggested that Apple’s inability to get enough LTPO displays built would limit its ability to use them on all of the iPhone 15 models. That now appears to have been backed up by this latest report.
Apple is expected to announce the new iPhones at an event this September, with the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 Pro Max all likely to go on sale around ten days after they are announced.
