New leaks are suggesting that Apple‘s upcoming iPhone 13 might be equipped with an always-on display with a higher refresh rate.

According to reports, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman recently wrote in his Power On newsletter that the next generation of iPhones will carry “a faster A15 chip, smaller notch, a new display for better battery life and the potential of an Apple Watch-like always-on mode and a 120Hz refresh rate and upgrades to video recording.” While no specific details regarding the always-on display were given, Engadget points towards the use of an LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) panel that could drop to exceptionally low refresh rates when the phone is idle in order to preserve battery life while still presenting information, as suggested by leaker Max Weinbach.

Aside from the iPhone 13, Gurman also suggests that the long-awaited MacBook Pro redesign will launch during the third quarter of this year. Carrying a mini LED display, the laptop will supposedly look more in line with the new iMac and be equipped with a more powerful version of Apple’s current M1 chip, potentially supporting up to 64GB of RAM.

As usual, Apple itself hasn’t confirmed any of these rumors, so those interested should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in tech, Malaysian authorities have crushed $1.26 million USD’s worth of crypto mining PCs.
