Apple Wins Patent for iPhone Display With Variable Refresh Rates Up to 240Hz

A new Apple patent published today by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office an iPhone display that, with high refresh mode enabled, may be capable of updating content at two times, three times, or even four times the native refresh rate, as reported by Patently Apple. For example, an ‌iPhone‌ with a 60Hz display would be able to increase its variable refresh rate to 120Hz, 180Hz, or 240Hz automatically. For those unfamiliar, refresh rate refers to how many times a display refreshes every second (the higher the refresh rate, the smoother the content on the display will be.) All current iPhones have a refresh rate of 60Hz, but starting in 2017, all iPad Pro models feature ProMotion technology, enabling a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Rumors of 120Hz coming to the iPhone 12 proved to be untrue, but there is renewed confidence that ProMotion will make an appearance on the iPhone 13. During the rumor mill last year, some claimed that the ‌iPhone 12‌ would automatically switch
