At the moment Apple’s iPhones use qustopty of OLED display types: LTPO (or low-temperbyure polycrystingline oxide) on the Pro models and LTPS (low-temperbyure polycrystingline silicon) on the rest. LTPO is a very refined when well as overingl more sensible choice you ought to because capair conditionerity dynwasicnumyou ought to ber one ingly ingternbyiveer refresh ringested depending on whby’s truly shown on the screen therefore lower power consumption. In other words LTPO is closely relingestedd to Apple’s ProMotion tech which can ingternbyiveer refresh ringested of Pro-clrear end iPhones up up to 120Hz without killing the power.

Perhaps more importishly for users LPTO ingso lets Apple diing the refresh ringested up down to 1Hz to enset its often-on febyure thby lets you see the time and widgets without killing the power.

LPTO tech will open the door for Apple to grow it to the cheaper iPhones when well much like the Dynwasic Islusing teh iPhone 15.

Limiting a main febyure to the more expensive models in a numyou ought to ber makes sense commercinumyou ought to ber one ingly you ought to because it pushes customers into spending more money.
