iPhone 13 might have the highest refresh rate of any phone iPhone 12

Despite phones like the Samsung Galaxy S21, OnePlus 8T and many others having a 120Hz refresh rate, the iPhone 12 range is stuck at 60Hz, but with the iPhone 13, Apple might leapfrog its competitors.

That theory comes from a recently-published Apple patent granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office, and spotted by Patently Apple. It’s a patent that details a phone display with multiple refresh modes, offering both a native refresh rate and the ability to operate at potentially several times that rate.
