Apple’s rumoured iPhone 16 display sounds like a joke

There's plenty to like about the iPhone 15 line up, with the likes of the Pro's titanium body and Action Button contributing to a more premium experience. But one thing that seems almost unforgivable in 2023 is the standard model's 60hz display a refresh rate that remains half that of the Pro models. And rumour has it we'll still have to make do with 60hz next year too.

New reports have suggested that the standard iPhone 16 won't be getting a ProMotion display, which means it still won't feature the same smooth scrolling and animations that the Pro models enjoy. And as many have suggested online, this is all starting to seem pretty ridiculous for a premium smartphone in 2023, let alone 2024.
