Apple's 120Hz ProMotion Displays Limited To iPhone 13 Pro Models Only, Tipster Claims – Forbes

Published

04/21 Update below. This post was originally published on April 19
Apple’s iPhone 13 range will have some (literally) massive upgrades. But now we know another huge iPhone 13 upgrade will not be coming to all the new models.
Apple’s iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Mini – new renders based on leaks
In a new exclusive, respected display specialist Ross Young has revealed that only the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will receive Apple’s highly anticipated ProMotion displays ​with the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini also using older, less efficient display hardware.
04/20 Update: popular Apple insider DuanRui has posted new photos giving us further insight into the changes Apple is making with the iPhone 13 display. The leaker has obtained third party screen protectors which earlier confirm reports that Apple is shrinking the notch significantly with this next iPhone generation. Holding the protector up to an iPhone 12 (image below), DuanRui shows that Apple has reduced the length of the notch by circa 30%, though the height itself looks largely unchanged. The protector also highlights the same series of circular cutouts that led one report to claim Apple may introduce a dual front camera with the range. While that seems unlikely, the reduction itself is very welcome and iOS 15 may well find new ways to optimise this marginal extra screen space.
04/21 Update: DuanRui has returned with further information following Apple’s Spring Loaded event yesterday. The tipster notes that the new combined power and high speed data cable that ships with Apple’s redesigned iMac is something expected to come to the iPhone. DuanRui notes that the design for this was understood to be a braided design, something that (typically reliable) leaker Mr White revealed in September last year but which then never materialized. As such, it now looks like Apple pushed the cable upgrade but having debuted in the new iMacs, I would expect to see it come to future iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and Mac Pros. Furthermore, with Apple merging more and more of its hardware and software across these devices, such parity makes a lot of sense.

Responding to questions, Young said that 2022 was now the date when the two standard iPhones could expect this tech – comprised of a 120Hz high refresh rate and LTPO displays, which automatically adjust their refresh rates as low as 1Hz to save power, such as when looking at photos. And the decision represents a significant gamble on Apple’s part. 
High refresh rates have been wildly popular on Android phones for almost two years now, with 90Hz and 120Hz panels even finding their way into budget phones like Samsung’s $160 Galaxy M12. So asking fans to once again spend close to $1,000 (incl tax) on an iPhone in late 2021 with a standard 60Hz OLED display is pushing it. 
Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra is the first smarthone to pack an LTPO display
On the flipside, Young’s statement that Apple will provide LTPO panels and ProMotion to both iPhone 13 Pros is actually good news because – quite remarkably – talk was growing that only the iPhone 13 Pro Max would have it. That could have been a disaster. And given Young’s rock-solid track record, this should be information you can bank on. 
So what will sell the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini, if not ProMotion displays? The big news, quite literally, is their supersized new cameras and clever new video modes, while Apple is (finally) reducing the notch, adding cutting edge WiFi, second-gen MagSafe and improved 5G. Apple’s A15 chip also looks set to impress, as usual. 
And then there’s the release date. Industry reports claim iPhone 13 production is well ahead of schedule, so it looks like you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on one.

Hands-on: PHNX’s Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro ultra-thin case lineup – 9to5Google

Below we go hands-on with the super-sleek and ultra-thin PHNX case lineup for the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. 9to5Google readers can grab a PHNX case now for 20% OFF with our code 9TO5GOOGLE for a limited time.
Check out our hands-on with the PHNX Pixel 6 series case lineup from PHNX below:

The company has made smartphone cases that have been designed specifically with minimalists in mind or just those that hate adding yet more bulk to their pocket. Every single case from PHNX is ideally suited to those that want to not only protect their prized possession but don’t want to lose functionality and — most importantly — form. That’s an important differentiator given the large footprints of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, which come in at 6.4-inches and 6.67-inches respectively.
There are a ton of cases out there that claim total device coverage but not very many can offer protection without increasing device bulk quite substantially. PHNX Pixel 6 cases have always taken a different approach for the unique contours of the latest Made by Google smartphone series. Rather than being heavy and bulky, these cases let you enjoy the unique look and feel of your brand new smartphone but without any sort of over-the-top branding or logos — meaning you’re not inadvertently advertising a brand simply by protecting your phone.
At just 0.35mm or 0.01-inches thin, you’ll benefit from an extra layer of protection without needing to make more room in your pocket or sacrifice the curves and contours of either of the massive late-2021 flagship Pixel handsets. If you want to protect your display, all PHNX cases play nicely with screen protectors and other common accessories such as smartphone grips.
Not wanting to hinder access to important buttons and controls, PHNX has paid close attention to access to things such as charge port, volume and power buttons on each of their ultra-thin cases. Every single case for Pixel 6 (or any other device) is lazer cut for precise access to all of the most important portions of your smartphone — including the speakers. There is also a raised lip around the precious rear camera bar/visor to ensure it’s protected when placed on flat surfaces — especially across the curved glass corners.
With the Pixel 6 weighing in at 207g and the Pixel 6 Pro at 210g, neither option would be considered “lightweight” by modern smartphone standards. Luckily each and every PHNX case is for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro adds no noticeable extra mass without sacrificing protection. The color options are simple and refined with Frosted White, Frosted Black and, Matte Black available:
All PHNX cases ship within just one business day and are backed by a 100% money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. 9to5Google readers can hit the links below to grab a PHNX case now with 20% OFF with our code 9TO5GOOGLE for a limited time:
