The Cupertino-based company is used to releasing new features exclusive to its high-end models for its other smartphones over time. Such a move will make the line of phones more uniform.

Yang added that due to supply chain issues, Apple will delay bringing its ProMotion smooth scrolling technology to standard iPhones by at least a year. ProMotion offers a refresh rate of up to 120Hz (instead of 60Hz) for smoother scrolling and greater responsiveness. Apple first used ProMotion on the iPad Pro in 2017 and then added it to the iPhone 13 Pro in 2021.
