Of course, 11 years later, the tables have turned. Android flagships have significantly more advanced displays than iPhones, thanks to their higher refresh rates and touch sampling rates. For reference:

Ready? Set. Buy!?
And here come the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. As a matter of fact, the iPad Pro’s 120Hz ProMotion display was expected to hit iPhones back in 2020 for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, according to various sources, Apple didn’t manage to secure enough panels for all the iPhones that would have been sold. Well, 2021 is going to be the year for the biggest iPhone display refresh since iPhone 4, and perhaps since iPhone X!
So, what should you expect? Well, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max displays will look and, more importantly, feel much faster. Animations and scrolling will be smoother than ever. Combined with Apple’s already great optimization, which makes even 60Hz displays look smooth, the 120Hz ProMotion display will elevate the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, to new heights. It will be a huge visual change for iPhone users, who (let’s be honest), aren’t used to big changes.

Apple’s best-sellers (so far)…
Top 10 smartphones by volume share, Q1 2021:
Back in 2014, Apple finally jumped on the big screen train wagon, despite the fact that Steve Jobs probably wouldn’t have liked this idea. We’ll never know if that would have been the case. However, what we know is that people went Bananas for those iPhone 6 Apples. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus exceeded 200 million sold units.
In the end, we are glad that Apple is finally going to join the high-refresh-rate club. The iPhone 13 series is expected to be unveiled in the third week of September, which is about a month away. We are also looking forward to the iPhone 14, which might make the standard iPhone “Pro”, thanks to the 120Hz ProMotion display that might make its way down from the iPhone 13 Pro.
