The iPhone 16 series may not see many updates in 2024, and one of them is unlikely to appear is the high-refresh display. That’s right, new reports claim that Apple will continue to use a 60Hz display on the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus next year when it launches.
The company seems happy to offer regular refresh rates on its regular iPhone models, which we also saw on the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus this year. High refresh rate displays are a given when it comes to Android phones, going up to 144Hz and in some cases even 165Hz.
But as far as iPhone buyers are concerned, they spend well over Rs 70,000 and are still happy with 60Hz display panels, even though experience and specs don’t matter to all iPhone buyers. The report also notes that the iPhone 16 will have a 6.12-inch Retina display, while the 16 Plus will have a larger 6.69-inch display like its predecessor.
One of the biggest updates this year was the Dynamic Island notch, which is coming to the vanilla and Plus iPhone 15 models, and will likely make its way to the iPhone 16 models as well. That being said, some improvements to the display components are expected, which will likely be revealed closer to the iPhone 16 launch event in 2024.
So if you’ve decided not to buy the iPhone 15 model in order to buy next year’s iPhone, Apple clearly doesn’t want to give you many reasons to wait, instead you can buy the iPhone 15 itself, since the features are expected to be identical between the two variants.
Another big news about the iPhone 16 series could be related to its camera technology and possible updates on the battery front now that the company has fully implemented USB C charging in its models starting with the iPhone 15 series this year.
