    Not that I am aware. Is there a reason you want to do that?

    I don't think you can turn it off.
    Why do you want to turn off ProMotion?

    Yes you can. In iOS 11 Beta, its hidden under accessibility. I was shocked to see it there.

    I was just curios. I called Apple. They told me where it is.

    On iOS 10:

    Settings - General - Accessibility - Display Accommodations - Limit Frame Rate

    Lol, I always reduce white point and animations on my iOS devices so I came upon that setting by accident. :p

    This isn't the same thing though...?

    Limit Frame Rate
    If you have an iPad Pro (10.5-inch) or iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation), you can set the maximum frame rate of your display to 60 frames per second. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations and turn on Limit Frame Rate.

    This is an example of the disjointed mess that iOS is becoming.

    Advertise a new feature: ProMotion
    Setting to disable that feature: "Limit Frame Rate" :rolleyes: ...because having a "Use ProMotion" checkbox would be too confusing.

    And what is Apple implying about people who want to disable it by placing it under "Accessibility"? :confused:

    Yeah, I was wondering why is this option in Accessibility too.

    As a person with known cases of motion sickness from electronic devices, ProMotion made it better for me actually! (And this is why I sold off my 1st Gen quickly to prepare for the Gen 2 despite knowing that I will incur losses)
