iPhone 17 rumors are already here: ProMotion always-on displays, anyone?

Recommended Posts



The tech world is abuzz with the latest rumors surrounding the iPhone 17’s display. The upcoming Apple device is expected to feature significant upgrades, making it a hot topic among gadget geeks.


The iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus are rumored to adopt OLED displays with low-power backplane technology. This technology is key to enabling ProMotion, a feature that allows for a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz. ProMotion not only provides a smoother scrolling experience but also allows the refresh rate to be reduced to as low as 1Hz. This means that the iPhone 17 could potentially have an always-on display that can show the Lock Screen’s clock, widgets, notifications, and wallpaper even when the device is locked.


The introduction of ProMotion to the standard models is a significant step, as it was previously reserved for the Pro models6. This move could potentially bring the best display features to a wider range of consumers5. However, these are still rumors, and Apple has yet to confirm any of these features.


As we anticipate the official announcement from Apple (most likely only after iPhone 16 is released), these rumors continue to fuel discussions about the future of smartphone displays. What are your thoughts on these rumored features? Do you think an always-on display and ProMotion will significantly enhance the user experience? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
