iPhone 14 would be more moving with this killer upgrade


The basic iPhone 14 would be a great improvement if it had a higher refresh rate.

In comparison to the iPhone 14 Pro, it’s no secret that the iPhone 14’s other rumoured features aren’t quite as exciting. It’s thought that this year’s iPhone Pro models will have the notch removed, a quicker A16 CPU, and potentially even a 48MP primary camera update. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are unlikely to get any of these features.

Without a doubt, the iPhone 14 will be a worthy upgrade for those who have been hanging on to their iPhone for three years or more and don’t want to spend $1,000 or more on their next phone. Don’t get me wrong! According to recent reports, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max is on the way, which means you won’t have to shell out a whopping $1,099 for the Pro Max version like you did with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.


There are many factors that go into the selling of smartphones, and the anticipated upgrades for the regular iPhone 14 don’t seem to be revolutionary. If the growing cost of living makes customers hesitant to pay $999 for an iPhone 14 Pro in the autumn, the new model might be a hard sell.

As a result, the iPhone 14 should diverge significantly from the iPhone 13 in some manner. A recent disclosure on Twitter also points to a possible path ahead for Apple.

Someone posting as Shadow Leak provided the information, and this leaker isn’t yet well-known for disseminating speculations about forthcoming smartphones. There is one characteristic in particular that jumps out from an otherwise typical list of features that Shadow Leak claims to offer. The iPhone 14 Max’s display is expected to feature a 90Hz refresh rate, according to leaked specifications.


Compared to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, which both have 60Hz refresh rates, this would be a major shift in design. In comparison, the 120Hz refresh rate of the iPhone 13 Pro models allows for smoother scrolling and richer visuals. You don’t even have to change any settings on the Pro phones since the refresh rate changes automatically.

Another reason the iPhone 14 Pro models will stand apart from the rest of the iPhone line is that they will feature 120Hz refresh rates, according to earlier sources. Nonetheless, the newest spec leak suggests that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max may see a minor increase in refresh rate.

Various refresh rates for different kinds of phones would be a common practise among phone manufacturers. For example, the Pixel 6 Pro has a refresh rate of 120Hz, whereas the less priced Pixel 6 only has a refresh rate of 90Hz. In other words, the more complex function is reserved for the Pro-level phones, while the standard flagships receive a little bump in refresh rate.


For the iPhone 14, Apple should use this strategy. In light of the rumours that the A15 Bionic would be used instead of a newer chipset in the two less priced iPhone models, a 90Hz refresh rate would provide customers a sense of value for their money.

According to reports, the iPhone 14 models will have a 90Hz display. However, this rumour is not generally known. It’s the only other example I can think of, and it comes from… Shadow Leak, who posted suspected iPhone 14 specifications back in February and raised the potential of a fast-refreshing display.

I’d say this is still a rumour for the iPhone 14 because of the absence of broad support for a 90Hz screen. However, if Apple is able to pull it off, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max updates in the autumn would be much more interesting.
