Apple’s ProMotion display technology was first seen on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max in September 2021. ProMotion allows the display to automatically refresh between 10Hz – 120Hz depending on the type of content on the screen. This helps to save battery life when the iPhone is not in need of the higher 120Hz.

According to the display analyst, the primary reason why Apple could feature 120Hz refresh rate only on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is because of display shortage. In his tweet, Young suggests that Chinese manufacturer BOE does not have enough LTPO OLED panel to supply Apple right now.
