    Maybe I'm overlooking something here, but the FPS is more GPU/CPU bound than it really has anything to do with the screen.

    The OP is referring to refresh rate, which is down to the display. OP, only change I see in refresh rate would be the adoption of the iPad Pros dynamic refresh rate; where it will refresh 60 times a seconds during normal use but can lower to 30 when the screen is not being used (thus saving battery life).

    I don't think it will go higher than 60 due to the hit on battery life. The main reason for going higher is fast-paced gaming, something the iPhone isn't suited to.

    Because 60fps is already a great standard; and is still double of that of almost all console games at 30fps.

    I know a lot of people are gaming on iOS, I made some of those games. 60 FPS is fine for most games, 30 FPS is even enough for some (all my games are 60).

    The only games that benefit from faster screens are ones with very fast gameplay, and those games have bigger issues on the platform, such as the lack of dedicated controls.

    Going above 60 FPS is relatively marginal anyway. If everyone has the same refresh rate, they are all equal.
