iPhone 17 and 17 Plus With 120 Hz Screen and Always-On

Although the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro have not yet been launched , rumors are already revealing what we could see in the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus. The base models of the generation we will see in 2025 would reportedly have two of the best features of the Pro models: the ProMotion display with a 120Hz refresh rate and the always-on display.

According to what we are told by the specialized media The Elec, BOE hopes to supply Apple with LPTO panels for the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus line to allow these two functions, but it is not yet known if the required production capacity can be achieved while maintaining production standards. Apple quality control.

The base models of the iPhone 17 will be much better than until now

Thanks to ProMotion technology, the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus would have an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz, meaning that animations and transitions would be much smoother. Furthermore, since it is adaptive, it would not affect the autonomy of the devices, since it adapts to the situation and is not always at 120 Hz.

On the other hand, the always-on screen would allow the screen of the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus to not turn off either, but intelligently so that it does not affect autonomy. When current iPhones that have this feature are in that mode, the screen drops to a 1 Hz refresh rate so as not to turn off and display useful information such as widgets or the time.

Next we are going to mention the new features that the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Pro would have. Although the iPhone 16 has not yet been presented, rumors are already telling us what could come in the future:

  • New 24MP front camera
  • ProMotion and Always-On Display for everyone
  • Face ID under the screen
  • A19 processor built on a 2nm process
  • Own Wi-Fi 7 chip

In the meantime, Apple is preparing for the March presentation, where new laptops and tablets are to be shown. If the rumors are true , the next generation of iPad Pro tablets will cost almost twice as much as the current models.
