Niantic recently made updates for the Pokémon Go application, and one of the new features for iOS will allow it to play games at higher frame rates. Verge has discovered a new option that allows you to “unlock your device’s native renewal rate for higher FPS.” It did not explicitly state in the app conversion document and whether it falls under the “various quality-of-life improvements” listed by the developer.
Also, the option is turned off by default, so you will have to find in the settings if you want to take advantage of your phone’s capabilities.
According to published reports, Pokémon Go has already started at 30fps on iOS – gamers have had to get tasks to get their games to run at 60fps – but newer phones have the capacity of more frames per second more than that. The iPhone 13 Pro, for example, has a 120fps screen. Verge says changing the feature makes a big difference and makes the game a lot more responsive. While Niantic may have been trying to cater to the owners of the new iPhone, the option could still access its predecessors. It just might not work properly on a device powered by older chips.
You can find the feature in the game’s advanced settings, which will display “unlock native update size” when turned on.
