With only a few months to go until the iPhone 15 makes its first appearance, rumours about the next generation of iPhone are reaching fever pitch. Persistent leaks and tidbits suggest we're in for, among other things, a titanium frame and (surprise, surprise) a better camera. Anyway, enough about that – let's talk about the iPhone 17.
Yep, you read that right. Rumours about the next-but-two iPhone have already begun. And according to reports, 2025's iPhone line up could finally introduce one of the most requested features. (Don't fancy waiting? Check out the best iPhone 14 deals available now).
Apple may have finally done away with the infamous notch with the iPhone 14 Pro, but the replacement arguably isn't all that different. The Dynamic Island still uses up precious pixels, and takes up space on the supposedly 'all screen' design of modern iPhones. But according to display analyst Ross Young (below), the iPhone 17 Pro will be the first to feature an under-display Face ID and camera.
And that's not the only good news. Ross also claims that the super-smooth 120hz ProMotion refresh rate, currently reserved for the iPhone (and iPad) Pro, will hit every model in the 2025 line up.
Apple to go all LTPO in 2025, even base models to get 120Hz refresh, finally. https://t.co/n0ivg08pde pic.twitter.com/dwjGiHwn8uApril 3, 2023
If both of these tidbits are true, it sounds like the next generation of iPhone is going to be all about the display. Users have been crying out for a truly notch-free iPhone for years, but the tech simply hasn't been there yet. And ProMotion, while arguably more of a nice-to-have feature than anything essential, is certainly easier on the eye.
The bad news is that it sounds like we're going to have to wait at least a couple of years. But still, there are already some (read: a ridiculous amount of) exciting iPhone 15 rumours doing the rounds, so we have a feeling it might be worth upgrading in 2023.
