Niantic recently updated the Pokémon Go app, and one of the new features for iOS is the ability to play at higher frame rates. According to The Verge, you may “unlock your device’s natural refresh rate for greater FPS by unlocking your device’s native refresh rate.” It’s not stated specifically in the app’s change log, but it most likely comes under the developer’s list of “various quality-of-life enhancements.” Also, the option is off by default, so you’ll have to look for it in settings if you want to use your phone’s features.

As noted in the article, Pokémon Go was originally capped at 30 frames per second on iOS, and players had to use workarounds to make their games to run at 60 frames per second, but newer phones are capable of more frames per second. The iPhone 13 Pro, for example, features a 120 frames per second display. According to The Verge, enabling the function made a significant improvement in the game’s responsiveness. While Niantic may have been trying to appeal to iPhone owners, the feature is also available on older iPhones. It might not work as well on older hardware with older processors.

You can find the the feature in the game’s advanced settings, which will show “native refresh rate unlocked” when it’s switched on.
