iPhone 15 leaks: Dynamic Island on iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus models but no high refresh rate

The refresh rate for the regular iPhone 14 models is still 60Hz, and is expected to remain the same next series.

Highlights
  • Apple is likely to introduce the Dynamic Island design feature in the vanilla iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus
  • Rumours suggest that the regular iPhone 15 models will not get the ProMotion high refresh rate display
  • Supply chain constraints could play a major role in the feature set decision of the iPhone in the future

Apple’s 2023 flagship iPhone series, the iPhone 15, is expected to adopt the pill-shaped Dynamic Island display feature across the range. Right after the launch of the Apple iPhone 14 2022 flagship lineup, the rumour mills for next year’s iPhone 15 have started turning. It seems that the vanilla iPhone 15 will adopt the Dynamic Island layout for its display next year; however, it is unlikely that the Cupertino-based tech giant will plonk the high refresh ProMotion display on the cheaper vanilla lineup.

iPhone 15 to get the Dynamic Island but still no ProMotion display?

Rumours have started flowing in about the next iteration of the iPhone, the iPhone 15, which is expected to be launched in 2023. The rumour suggests that the iPhone 15 will adopt the Dynamic Island design feature much like the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. If true, the iPhone 15 will finally move over from the notched design that was announced over five years ago with the introduction of the iPhone X. 

The rumour comes from tipster Ross Young who suggests this new advancement. Ross also says in his tweet that the iPhone 15 is still unlikely to get the 120Hz LTPO ProMotion panel. This means that Apple is willing to hold out the high refresh display feature for another year when it comes to the vanilla iPhone lineup and reserve it only for the ‘Pro’ models. This feature set decision, according to Ross, depends heavily on the supply chain constraints, and the tipster claims that the supply line still cannot facilitate higher demand for the panel. 

Apple sources its LTPO panels from Samsung and LG, while the standard 60Hz displays are supplied by BOE. BOE will not have the LTPO panels ready by the time of the iPhone 15’s launch, and thus Apple is likely to stick to the standard 60Hz panels with the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Plus.
