An iPhone 14 Pro display leak has just given another reason to skip it

With rumors of several standout features we've waited years for on an iPhone, the iPhone 14 Pro is shaping up to be an impressive update this year, but things are looking a little bleaker for the iPhone 14.

The latest rumor once again focuses on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro displays. The Elec reports that both will use Samsung OLED, but only the Pro will get an M12 OLED upgrade.

The display is a low-temperature polycrystalline oxide TFT OLED capable of dynamically refreshing from 1Hz to 120Hz. Always-on displays require this feature.

As per the report, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will feature polysilicon OLED screens that were produced in the past, and which have low-temperature capability.

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max is an example of a device that would theoretically have the same 10Hz to 120Hz range as the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max that you currently have.

As a result of this report, the standard models are expected to return to 60Hz once again in 2022, which would be shocking for flagship phones then.

 The newer OLED panels should also provide a better level of color accuracy and energy efficiency than their predecessors.

We saw an Xcode beta yesterday showing how the always-on display mode will work on iPhone 14 Pro, and whether they deliver ProMotion or not, it is clear that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will not be capable of supporting it.

The absence of always-on displays, however, isn't a major loss for iPhone users. The always-on display is nice, however, since I've grown accustomed to it over the years as an Android user.
