We are perfectly aware that, just a few hours ago, we told you that in the fifth beta of iOS 14 there are several clues that point to displays with a 120Hz refresh rate. However, according to the most recent rumors, it seems that iPhone 12 Pro will be without one. The cause would be linked to the supply of components for the screens.
iPhone 12 Pro: no 120Hz?
The news, on Twitter, is the famous analyst Ross Young. According to him, for Apple, the problem would not be the supply of panels with refresh rates capable of reaching 120Hz, but the control chips. For this reason, it is very likely that the Cupertino giant decides to leave the “usual” 60Hz by default on the iPhone 12 Pro.
Hearing that Apple can get 120Hz Pro panels, but not 120Hz driver ICs. So they will either have to come up with a fix which will be difficult, wait for 120Hz driver ICs and delay the launch possibly significantly or launch with 60Hz. We are hearing they will launch with 60Hz.

Below, the translation of the tweet:
I have heard that Apple can get 120Hz Pro panels, but not 120Hz driver ICs. So they will have to find a solution that will be difficult, wait for the 120Hz driver ICs and possibly delay launch significantly or start with 60Hz. We are hearing that they will be launched at 60Hz.
Therefore, between the possibility of delaying the launch of future iPhone by, or the postponement of the new functionality to the next generation of devices, Apple will probably lean towards the second choice. If the forecast turns out to be reliable, it would be a major disappointment for users.
