I spent a good 30 seconds just flipping back and forth between home screens, admiring the fluidity of the ProMotion transition. Tapping an icon for the UI view to expand up and out of the app icon is noticeably beautiful. Sliding messages or emails in and out is slick and efficient. That entire app pile-in each time you unlock your iPhone has never looked so fancy.
Give me half an iPhone of a pre-ProMotion display and a current ProMotion display and I’d be able to tell them apart in under a second. The difference is incredible and I will never, ever be able to go back.
My iPhone 13 Pro is still about three weeks away from delivery, and there’s two things that I’m increasingly excited about — ProMotion and the new cameras. I’m jumping from the iPhone XS Max, so there are a lot things that’ll be “new” for me, but the more I read about ProMotion and the new cameras, the more I wish I should’ve just bought the phone from a local store. The wait’s killing me.
