Ahead of the launch of the new iPhone 15 series in September 2023, rumor mills are sharing details of the iPhone 16 series expected to launch in 2024. Here we have compiled all the alleged design changes and features coming to the iPhone 16 Pro models.
New: Sonny Dickson has created the first computer-aided designs (CAD) of the iPhone 16 Pro Max with the rumored 6.9-inch larger display.
First CADs visualize a taller iPhone 16 Pro Max with a larger 6.9-inch display
Dickson’s CADs are inspired by the report from Ross Young claiming that the highest-end iPhone model in the iPhone 16 series will feature a 6.9-inch larger screen. CADs visualize the iPhone 16 Pro Max or iPhone 16 Ultra would be even larger with a 6.9-inch screen (measured diagonally) and taller and wider with 165.0mm and 77.2mm measurements, respectively.
The current iPhone 14 Pro Max features a 6.7-inch display with thin bezels which already is a fairly large screen and is 76.7mm tall.
There is also speculation that this year, Apple is going to widen the gap between standard and Pro models by replacing the iPhone 15 Pro Max with a new iPhone 15 “Ultra” model which would feature even more advanced features like a periscope lens, larger display, and others.
If it turns out to be true, then iPhone 16 series is likely to adopt the branding and offer the iPhone 16 Ultra model in 2024.
iPhone 16 Pro Max might feature a 6.9-inch display in 2024
May 15, 2023: Display analyst Ross Young claims that the iPhone 16 Pro models will feature the largest display on an iPhone ever.
Young tweeted that the Pro models of the upcoming iPhone 16 series will feature slightly larger displays.
Enough about the iPhone 15, is it time to start leaking about the iPhone 16 yet? Hearing about some new sizes on the Pro models […] 6.2z” and 6.8x”.
Aspect ratio will increase slightly on the iPhone 16 Pro models.
The latest iPhone 14 series features a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. Although Young did not mention the display sizes of the iPhone 16 Pro models, he replied “close” to screen sizes suggested by another Twitter user on his post.
- iPhone 16: 6.1-inch
- iPhone 16 Plus: 6.7-inch
- iPhone 16 Pro: 6.4-inch
- iPhone 16 Ultra: 6.9-inch
It is reported tht this year, Apple is going to replace the iPhone 15 Pro Max with a new iPhone 15 Ultra model to further widen the gap between standard and Pro models. Allegedly, the iPhone 15 Ultra will feature the thinnest bezels, two front cameras, USB-C connectivity, ultra-low energy microprocessor.
Based on the reports, it appears Apple will use the same branding in the 2024 iPhone lineup as well with even more distinguished features in the Ultra model. iPhone 16 Pro will feature new solid-state volume buttons with haptic feedback and under-display Face ID and a periscope lens.
In 2022, Apple changed the branding of iPhone models in the latest iPhone 14 series; the company removed the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini model and introduced the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus (standard) model. Therefore, it will not be surprising for the tech company to replace the Pro Max model with a new Ultra model.
