A brand new replace to Pokémon Go for iOS allows you to run the sport at larger body charges. With model 1.191.0, the “superior settings” part of the app now contains an choice that reads “Unlock your gadget’s native refresh price for larger FPS.”
I attempted it out on my iPhone 13 Professional and it makes an enormous distinction. Pokémon Go isn’t essentially the most visually sophisticated sport, after all, however there’s lots of scrolling and digicam motion, and the smoother contact response feels loads higher once you’re lining up a pokéball throw together with your finger.
Right here’s how the characteristic seems within the sport’s menu:
Pokémon Go was beforehand locked to 30fps on iOS gadgets. Many Android telephones are already able to operating the sport at the next body price, although in my expertise testing throughout a number of gadgets the help might be hit or miss. Nonetheless, Pokémon Go usually ran higher on Android till now.
The brand new iOS characteristic isn’t restricted to the 13 Professional and Professional Max, that are the one iPhones with 120Hz “ProMotion” shows. I additionally tried it on my previous 8 Plus and it’s doable to unlock the body price there, too, although the getting old A11 processor doesn’t at all times sustain a gentle 60fps.
Niantic isn’t making a giant deal out of the characteristic; it’s switched off by default and it isn’t talked about in model 1.191.0’s launch notes, past a obscure point out of “varied quality-of-life enhancements.” It’s doable that enabling it for all customers would trigger complaints about battery life, contemplating that Pokémon Go is already a fairly heavy app in that regard. But when that’s not a priority for you, it’s price giving the choice a strive.
