iPhone 13 is about to be released on the high brush range to carry it?

Borg SEP 02,2021

Time flies, starting today has been to the last week of August, fruit fans are eagerly awaiting the appearance of the iPhone 13 series and a series of information have been exposed one after another, and even the release date were rumored out: the early morning of the 15th China time.

There are many highlights of the iPhone 13 configuration this time. The net rumor is that the Pro and Pro Max versions of the four models of the iPhone 13 series will be upgraded to 120Hz high brush. While the view does improve, Pro Max battery upgraded to 4352mAh first, Pro version of 3095mAh really hold up?

iPhone 12 series why not on high brush?

I believe we all know that the iPhone 12 series has two small regrets: one is not equipped with fast charging function, the second is not on the high brush. This part of the fast charging we skipped first, after all, the iPhone series battery rating capacity is not that large (no disparaging meaning). However, the refresh rate issue is still a lot of user complaints - the second half of last year, many of the main models of the Android camp are equipped with a 120Hz screen refresh rate.

In fact, as early as the second generation iPad Pro released in June 2017, Apple equipped it with Pro Motion technology, which can increase the screen refresh rate to 120Hz and support dynamic adjustment in the range of 24-120Hz. But the high refresh rate on the iPad Pro was not actually intended to enhance the viewing experience, as there were not that many applications that supported 120Hz display at that time, and the main reason for carrying 120Hz was to reduce the delay of Apple Pencil and make the writing experience more smooth.

Although Android manufacturers have subsequently followed up on the screen high brush function, the higher screen refresh rate has very high requirements for battery life. Even though the iPad Pro is equipped with Pro Motion technology to intelligently adjust the frame rate, its battery life is the weakest of all generations. Therefore, I think the iPhone 12 series is not on the high brush a big reason is the range problem - iPhone 12 equipped with an external Qualcomm 5G SOC, taking up space in the body, the space occupied by the battery also had to be reduced.

Of course, there are also application adaptations, screen size is not large, iOS system optimization and other factors, which we will talk about in detail in the next section.

Is it really necessary for the iPhone series to be on the high brush?

In the consciousness of most cell phone users, the screen refresh rate is naturally the higher the better, the latest Android flagship released on the market is basically 120Hz bottom, the highest can even go up to 165Hz. but in fact, the overall perception of the Apple 12 series is also very smooth, which has a great connection with the optimization of the iOS system. iOS system on the fine degree of transition animation is very important, here I also Post a lecture on smooth user interface from Apple found online at WWDC2018, for those interested.

In addition to the smooth animation, users also use iOS "tombstone mechanism", "iOS system priority response touch" reason to explain why iOS system in 60Hz can still be so smooth. Of course, there are also users spit iOS is "slow even", this is actually a matter of opinion. At least in my personal experience, the smooth feel of the operation can be said to be an advantage of the iPhone series.

iPhone 13 is equipped with a high brush life to carry it

Back to the topic, according to the net rumors iPhone 13 will be equipped with LTPO screen, LTPO is actually a screen substrate material, currently in a plus 9 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, OPPO Find X3 Pro and other top Android flagships on board. In fact, this is not the first time Apple uses the technology, the previously released Apple Watch 5 has been used LTPO screen, according to user feedback its battery life performance is much better than Apple Watch 4.

LTPO is characterized by high electron mobility, low power consumption, low cost, etc., before because of the difficulty of mass production and price is difficult to control so it is not used. We all know that the general TV series, movies are only 24 fps, then LTPO can automatically adjust the frame rate down to a suitable range to reduce power consumption. For example, it can be reduced to 1Hz when reading novels, or increased to 120Hz when playing games, etc. Recently, Liu Fengshuo, COO of OnePlus, also praised the LTPO screen of OnePlus 9 Pro, which can be seen on the product page of OnePlus 9 Pro, officially claiming that the latest generation of LTPO screen can save up to 50% power.

About LTPO how exactly to reduce consumption, simply put is LTPS (low temperature polycrystalline silicon) + IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) two materials mixed together, each other to make up for the two high power consumption and low mobility two shortcomings, faster response time, lower power consumption, can bring more lasting life experience.

Of course, if the iPhone 13 insists on high brush, it has its own advantages over the Android camp models, that is, the "appeal" of the iOS system. Unlike Android applications, Apple has a great deal of "say" in the software within the iOS ecosystem, and Apple can ask developers to update their APP products as soon as possible.


Although according to the current mainstream exposure news, iPhone 13 series will only Pro version and Pro Max equipped with 120Hz high brush function, but I think those who are accustomed to buy the series in the cup users also do not need to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to upgrade. (According to the news this standard version and the Pro version of the price difference may even reach about 1500 yuan), after all, 60Hz iPhone 12 is not also quite fragrant?
