On iOS, Pokémon Go gets an update that adds native refresh rate support for higher frame rates and smoother gameplay

The new settings to enable higher FPS in the game were spotted by The Verge on the latest version of the Pokemon Go app for iOS, but developer Niantic has not 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 does not inform users or nudge them to try the new feature.

Pokemon Go for iOS has been upgraded to include support for faster refresh rates on compatible devices, giving the iPhone version of the popular location-based game greater touch responsiveness. Users may now “unlock” their smartphone’s native refresh rate for greater frames per second (FPS) when playing Pokemon Go in the newest update to the game on the App Store. Turning on the setting for native refresh rate support, on the other hand, may result in a reduction in battery life, particularly on older iPhone models.

The Pokemon Go app on iOS can now reportedly run at 60 FPS on iPhones, which showed visibly smoother animations in our testing on an iPhone 11. The game would previously run at 30 FPS, according to the report, so users running the game on the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max should see the biggest improvements on their smartphones thanks to their 120Hz displays.

Gamers who want to try out the new setting to use the native refresh rate on their iPhone can head over to the App Store and check for updates, as the setting seems to have been enabled on version 1.191.0 of the game. After updating, here’s how you enable native refresh rate on Pokémon Go:

The new feature to enable native refresh rate support on Pokemon Go for iOS may provide visual improvements, but will almost certainly come at the expense of battery life, so users on older iPhone models or recent smartphones like Apple’s iPhone SE (2020) and iPhone 12 Mini may want to leave the setting turned off.
