The iPhone 16 series is expected to succeed the iPhone 15 lineup which was launched in September 2023. The series included four models – the base iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The upcoming series has previously been tipped to feature a larger display alongside other improved specifications. Full dimensions of the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models have been previously suggested. A new report reiterates that iPhone 16 Pro models are expected to carry larger screens than previous models.
A MacRumors report suggests that the alleged iPhone 16 Pro model could have a 6.27-inch (159.31 mm) display, while the iPhone 16 Pro–Max could get a 6.85-inch (174.06 mm) panel. This is larger than the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch panels of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, respectively.
Reports suggest that the iPhone 16 Pro model may measure 149.6mm x 71.45mm x 8.25mm and weigh 194g. The older iPhone 15 Pro model measures 146.6mm x 70.6mm x 8.25mm and weighs 187g. On the other hand, the iPhone 16 Pro Max measures 163mm x 77.58mm x 8.25mm and is said to weigh 225g, while the previous iPhone 15 Pro Max weighs 221g and measures 159.9mm x 76.7mm x 8.25mm. Previously, leaked CAD files of the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, as well as DSCC analyst Ross Young, also suggested larger screens.
An earlier report also suggested that the iPhone 16 Pro Max model might launch with an ‘Ultra’ branding for the first time in the lineup’s history. Meanwhile, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are tipped to be equipped with a tetraprism telephoto lens, similar to what the iPhone 15 Pro Max features.
All iPhone 16 models were previously tipped to get the in-house A18 chipset and ship with the iOS 18 operating system. Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman has also suggested that a new dedicated button for taking videos, called the ‘Capture Button’, will be featured on the upcoming iPhone 16 models. The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models are also tipped to get the Action Button, which is now only available on the iPhone 15 Pro models.
