Pokémon Go gets update on iOS with native refresh rate support for higher FPS, smoother gameplay


Pokémon Go for iOS has been updated with support for higher refresh rates on compatible smartphones, bringing better tactile feedback to the iPhone version of the popular location-based game. The game’s latest update on the App Store now allows users to “unlock” their smartphone’s native refresh rate for higher frames per second (fps) while playing Pokémon Go. However, turning on the setting for native refresh rate support can reduce battery life, especially on older iPhone models.

The game had new settings to enable higher FPS spotty By The Verge on the latest version of the Pokémon Go app for iOS, but developer Niantic hasn’t mentioned the new feature anywhere in its changelog for the new update. The setting itself is buried deep in the Advanced Settings section of the app, and the game doesn’t notify users or prompt them to try the new feature.

The Pokemon Go app on iOS can now run at 60 fps on the iPhone, which clearly showed smooth animations in our testing on the iPhone 11. According to the report, the game previously ran at 30 fps, so users running the game on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max should see the biggest improvement in their smartphones thanks to their 120Hz display.
