At Apple, they are determined to break all records with the iPhone 13. What was initially planned as a minor update compared to the iPhone 12, accumulates a number of changes and improvements Enough to tell us that this year’s iPhone will represent a significant qualitative leap.
Date, time and notifications always on screen
Según los rumores y las filtraciones desde la cadena de suministros esperamos que los nuevos iPhone 13 tengan más batería, un notch más pequeño, un rendimiento bastante mayor, mejores pantallas y ahora, según la última newsletter publicada por Mark Gurman a la listade the permanent display.
We hear rumors about the possibility of this type of technology since we learned, still according to leaks still awaiting confirmation, that the new iPhone 13 would come with an LTPO screen. This screen would allow the iPhone to reach 120Hz refresh rate, a feature that was already widespread for the current iPhone 12, and that everything indicates that it will reach the iPhone 13.
These screens can vary the refresh rate dynamically, which is what we have already seen in the Apple Watch from the Apple Watch Series 5 which, precisely, brought the screen always on. So on the iPhone, Apple could go for the exact same move. According to Gurman, Apple expects the always-on screen of the iPhone to work very similar to that of the Apple Watch, show us certain information, such as date, time and some notifications, at any time.
Two new iPhones with LTPO display, 120 Hz and always on display.
Apple has traditionally been known to add new features while maintaining stable battery life so that we can use our devices throughout the day. Considering this, the rumor of the arrival of more battery on the iPhone 13 corresponds well to a function which, at least a priori, will lead to a higher cost. The end result will therefore be a new way to access information of our iPhone while maintaining the battery life as before.
On the other hand, it should be borne in mind that LTPO OLED displays that achieve a refresh rate of 120Hz are only intended for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. After much tugging between leaks and rumors, with some claiming that this technology will also reach the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13, it seems that in the end, they will be only iPhones with the Pro surname will see these new screens
While the 120Hz refresh rate is welcome in some circumstances, it’s not always obvious. However, the presence of the always-on screen only in the Pro models of the iPhone 13 will mark a clear differentiation between these models and the entry ones.
A differentiation which, together with improvements in cameras, new photographic modes and other changes, justifies, better than ever, the name Pro and gives us an even more complete experience. An experience that is only a few months away from showing itself in the new iPhone 13.
