Apple will finally let third-party apps take full advantage of 120Hz screens

After the launch of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max with 120Hz ProMotion screens, it turns out that most of the animations in third-party apps still run at 60Hz and can’t take full advantage of the new hardware screens. At the time, Apple said the issue was a Core Animation bug, which will be fixed in a later version of iOS. The company seems to have fixed the issue in iOS 15.4.

In the iOS 15.4 beta released yesterday, An apple He made a change that will allow third-party apps to automatically display animations at 120Hz refresh rates on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. Christian Selig, photo app developer at Apollo, took to Twitter today to announce that he had received word from Apple that iOS 15.4 will support in-app animation at 120 frames per second, and he himself was able to confirm the change.

With support for a 120Hz refresh rate, the new flagship iPhones can deliver smoother photos than previous generations. This is especially noticeable when scrolling through content and in games. It is worth noting that many manufacturers of Android smartphones have been offering screens with a high refresh rate for some time, even in fairly affordable devices. Apple itself introduced its first device with ProMotion back in the summer of 2017. The iPad Pro became the second generation.

Prior to iOS 14, iOS 13 saw an adoption rate of 77% at the same time after its release. With only 72% certified, many users therefore seem to prefer to stay on iOS 14; that continues to receive security updates.

However, although the adoption rate is much lower than in previous years; It is still much higher than newer versions of Android. In fact, last year we saw that Android 11 was in use for only a quarter of devices; Away from nearly three-quarters of Apple’s iOS 15 users.

An apple It also revealed that 26% of iPhones released in the past four years are running iOS 14; While 30% of all iPhones are still running iOS 14. Additionally, 2% of iPhones released in the last four years run iOS 13 or less; And 7% of all iPhones haven’t upgraded to iOS 14 or higher.

On the tablet side, the situation is worse. In fact, the latest OS installation numbers are much lower on the iPad. Only 57% of iPads released in the past four years run iPadOS 15, while 39% use iPadOS 14 and 4% are older versions. In total, 49% of all iPads are currently running iPadOS 15, while 37 and 14% are running iPadOS 14 and iPadOS 13 or less, respectively.
