  • The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are said to have a refresh rate of 60Hz, while the Pro and Ultra versions have a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate, which results in a smoother display and reduces motion blur
  • The new iPhone 15 series, like the previous iPhone 14 series, will consist of four models
  • The smart island screen modifies the notification system into a pop-up notification system
  • BOE will provide Apple with screens that support variable high refresh rates as soon as 2024

According to recent reports on January 10th, it has been revealed that Foxconn and other manufacturing companies have received instructions from Apple to start trial production of the new iPhone 15 series. The new series, like the previous iPhone 14 series, will consist of four models: the standard iPhone 15, the larger iPhone 15 Plus, the high-end iPhone 15 Pro, and the top-of-the-line iPhone 15 Ultra.

One of the most notable changes in the new iPhone series is the use of a smart island screen. This screen is a significant upgrade from previous iPhone models and will be utilized in all four models of the iPhone series. The smart island screen modifies the notification system into a pop-up notification system that can be accessed at any time and is automatically superimposed on the interface layer. The notifications can be small or large, modal or non-modal, depending on the user’s preferences. The smart island will typically be extended on both sides as the basic state, and a typical non-modal prompt box is constructed through icons and data, such as the power level of Airpods Pro.

In terms of screen production, BOE (BOE is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of LCD, OLEDs, and flexible displays) is reported to have secured most of the orders for the iPhone 15 and15 Plus models, which will feature the same smart island screen as the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Ultra models. However, there is an important difference in the refresh rate of the screens. The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus is said to have a refresh rate of 60Hz, while the Pro and Ultra versions have a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate which is a display technology that adjusts the refresh rate of the screen to match the motion of the on-screen content. This results in a smoother display and reduces motion blur.

It’s worth noting that BOE is planning to provide Apple with screens that support variable high refresh rates as early as 2024. It means that the upcoming iPhone series will not only have this upgrade but also the potential for even more advanced display technology in the future.

The new iPhone series is expected to be a major upgrade in terms of design, performance, and features when compared to previous iPhone models. The integration of the smart island screen and the use of high refresh rate displays are just a couple of the many innovations that users can expect from the new iPhone series. As always, Apple fans and technology enthusiasts alike eagerly await the release of the new iPhone 15 series, which is expected to bring a host of new features and capabilities to the market.
