A new leak about 2021 iPhones suggests Apple is likely to use the same technology that features on its smart Watch that enables an always-on display which is also expected to have improved battery life.
On this note, the iPhone maker does not intend to compete with Android devices that have reportedly featured always-on display but intends to build its 2021 model of smartphones with interesting features that also include A15 chips, a smaller notch on the screen, and a 120Hz refresh rate accessibility via LTPO.
If you’re familiar with Apple products and it leaks, you will understand this is not the first time a leak is suggesting an always-on display for iPhones yet to be released. Still, iPhone 13 is expected to be built with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, LTPO, the same tech that features on Apple Watch.
Last week, when the iPhone maker revealed they already have up to 90 million units of iPhone ready for distribution when iPhone 13 releases, the report also noted 2021 iPhones will have LTPO as one of its main components to star the device — note that LTPO has reportedly featured on Apple’s products.
It is worth noting the Pro version of the iPhone 13 should have an LTPO display that enhances the typical function of the device display. For contrast, an always-on display is expected to consume more battery, but the dynamic nature of LTPO will adjust the screen by auto to conserve battery at a 120Hz refresh rate.
Apple is expected to announce the new version of its MacBook pro towards the third quarter of 2021 while production of this device will commence immensely for global distribution.
