Apple’s Dynamic Island feature, which is currently only available on its iPhone 14 Pro models, is now said to be coming to more iPhone models next year. Dynamic Island is a software feature that not only covers Apple’s new Pill and Hole TrueDepth camera system, but is also well integrated into UI elements creating a new way to display and interact with notifications and status indicators. However, the company’s promotional displays, which feature a 120Hz refresh rate, will be limited to Pro models, the analyst said.
claims display industry analyst Ross Young Tweet Apple is expected to make the newly introduced Dynamic Island available on iPhone 15 models next year, which means it may not be limited to Pro models like the recently launched iPhone 14 series. Ross also claimed that while Dynamic Island is expected to be available on all iPhone 15 models, Apple’s 120Hz promotional displays will still be limited to Pro models.
According to the analyst, the 120Hz LTPO displays found on Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models will remain for next year’s Pro models as Apple’s current display supplier BOE cannot support the production of such displays given the tech giant’s demands. The display analyst also said that Apple’s promotional displays could be available on lower-priced iPhone models by 2024.
The availability of Apple’s Dynamic Island on low-cost iPhone models is likely to increase developer support for the feature. But it may also convince some consumers to hold off on their iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus purchases this year because both of these new iPhone models lack a feature that could eventually become the standard way to interact with the iPhone.
Apple has made another difference between its standard iPhone and iPhone Pro models this year, instead of including last year’s A15 Bionic processor (with a 5-core GPU) with its latest A16 Bionic SoC, exclusive to the current Pro model. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus seem to be the only new products announced at Apple’s last event that feature an older generation processor as the new Apple Watch SE 2nd Generation has also been upgraded to the new SiP found in the latest Apple Watch Series 8.
