How to Limit ProMotion Screen Display to 60Hz on iPhone and iPad

It can be said that one of the biggest highlights on Apple’s newly launched iPhone 13 product line lies in the appearance of ProMotion screen technology on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max duo.

The biggest advantage of ProMotion panels lies in the fact that it can automatically adjust refresh rates flexibly in the range from 10Hz to 120Hz, depending on the user’s usage tasks in real time. Thus, to some extent, you can actively save battery life and extend the life of your device by limiting the display to 60 frames per second. Remember that this option does not disable or disable ProMotion technology.

And if battery life is a big concern for you, you can enable Low Power Mode to automatically enable the option to limit the frame rate. How to do it is very simple.

Which iPhone and iPad models have ProMotion screens?

The ProMotion display was first introduced with the 2017 iPad Pro model. You can find this display panel technology in the following iPad and iPhone models:

  • iPad Pro 12.9 inch (2nd to 5th generation)
  • 11-inch iPad Pro (1st to 3rd generation)

This list will certainly be expanded gradually in the future, when new and modern products are introduced to the market.
