The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max now, as the only iPhone models, feature the Dynamic Island. But if display analyst Ross Young is to be believed, the special notch is coming to all iPhone 15 models next year. So you wouldn’t have to reach deeper into the pocket for that cool feature then.
Back to basics for a moment: what exactly is this Dynamic Island? This is a screen notch where Apple incorporated the front camera and other sensors. It is shaped like a pill and can be made larger and smaller via software. This allows the notch to offer more options, which are then always available.
iPhone 14 Pro feature to iPhone 15
That all sounds very nice. But so when you buy the cheaper iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus you don’t get access to that Dynamic Island. Instead, you get a kind of static peninsula that now looks even more hopelessly outdated. But if analyst Ross Young is to be believed, that’s about to change.
Twitter won’t load because you didn’t give permission.
Yes, Dynamic Island expected on standard models on the 15. Still not expecting 120Hz/LTPO on standard models as supply chain can’t support it.

Indeed, Young expects the iPhone 15 series as a whole to feature the dynamic island of the iPhone 14 Pro (Max). Should that be true: heartily cool. So does this mean Apple will make more improvements to the screen when the iPhone 15 hits the starting blocks?

No ProMotion screen?
Well, then again, that doesn’t look like it. Indeed, Young also reports on Twitter that Apple will then again not add a ProMotion display to the arsenal of iPhone 14 successors. Is that a huge drawback? No, not that either – but the ProMotion display can save energy through important screen technology.
Namely, the iPhone 14 Pro line has a so-called Low Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide display. Such an LTPO display can dynamically manage the refresh rate and adjust it to the content. For example, the always-on screen can be displayed in 10 Hertz, which consumes much less energy than 120 Hertz.
