iPhone 13 Pro Max
My Question or Issue
The animation for opening and closing the fullscreen player is extremely laggy and unsatisfying. The second I installed spotify on my new phone it had this issue on the older ios version (dont know which one it was but it was a version of iOS 14) but then after upgrading to ios 15 the problem persisted. (see attachment)
I have tried signing out everywhere and only on the phone, didnt work. And it seems like im the only one with this problem but i doubt that because i just got the iphone 13 pro max and it was only avaliable for pre order delivery today so ill see.

@Robsen is correct that this is most likely due to the 120hz screen that the new iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have.
Using the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max and tapping on the now playing bar to bring up the full now playing screen, the animation on the new 120hz screen is slower than an iPhone 12 or older with a 60hz screen. It's likely the animation doesn't currently take 120hz into account since it should be smoother than the older iPhone models and it's currently slower.
The official name for the new screen technology on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max is called "ProMotion" which is what they are calling the 120hz refresh rate.
I tested side by side on both an iPhone 12 Pro Max and an iPhone 13 Pro Max and the animation on the iPhone 12 Pro Max is fine, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max does indeed have a slow now playing animation. Hopefully it will be fixed in a future update.
