iPhone 16 Rumor

iPhone 16 Rumor

The iPhone 16 & iPhone 16 Pro models are expected to be available in September 2024. Although the date is in the distant future, there are many rumors about this next-generation flagship line already. Despite these being early days, we can hear the whispers regarding a memory boost for iPhone 16 & iPhone 16 Plus models. In addition, as per some reports, iPhone 16 Pro & iPhone 16 Pro Max will get some upgrades to the cameras. Let's learn about the iPhone 15’s successor.

 iPhone 16 Rumors:

 iPhone 16— Release date:

At an event that took place in September, the iPhone lineup is announced & usually ships one week or two later. But due to the shortage in the supply chain, a specific model or variant might ship in October.

 iPhone 16— Price:

We have given here the price of the most recent iPhone lineup, which is as follows:

 iPhone 14— $799/£849

iPhone 14 Plus— $899/£949

iPhone 14 Pro— $999/£1,099

iPhone 14 Pro Max— $1,099/£1,199

 iPhone 15 Pro Max is also called iPhone 15 Ultra. A few rumors say that it will cost more than the current top-end iPhone. Besides, according to some people, the price hike can extend to the smaller iPhone 15 Pro. In case it happens, it can be assumed that the iPhone 16 can cost more.

 Still, no new information is available about the pricing of the iPhone 16 line. Therefore, it can be expected that the price of this model will be the same as the iPhone 15 line. That means the standard size iPhone 16 will be available at $799, whereas the price of the larger Plus model will be $899. Besides, the cost of the iPhone 16 Pro will be $1,099, while the iPhone 16 Pro Max will cost $1,199.

 Size Changes:

These are the screen sizes of the latest iPhone model, including:-

 iPhone 15 - 6.1 inches

iPhone 15 Plus - 6.7 inches

iPhone 15 Pro - 6.1 inches

iPhone 15 Pro Max - 6.7 inches

 iPhone 16 screen sizes- rumored

iPhone 16 - 6.1 inches

iPhone 16 Plus - 6.7 inches

iPhone 16 Pro - 6.3 inches

iPhone 16 Pro Max - 6.9 inches

 As per many sources, iPhone 16 Pro & iPhone 16 Pro Max might come with larger display sizes. iPhone 16 Pro can be expected to include a 6.3" display. Whereas the display size of the iPhone 16 Pro Max can be around 6.9 inches.

The iPhone 16 Pro models come with an enhanced aspect ratio, 19.6.9, whereas 19.5:9 is the current aspect ratio. These iPhone 16 Pro models will be taller, but it is not going to be super noticeable. Ross Young, who is a display analyst, says that the iPhone 16 Pro will be 6.27" up from 6.12. On the other side, the measurement of the iPhone 16 Pro Max will be 6.86 inches up from 6.69". So, it can be said that the display size will increase by 2.5%. Although the larger display sizes are limited to these iPhone 16 Pro models in 2024, the company plans to bring the features with the launch of the iPhone 17 in 2025.

 Display Technology:

iPhone 16 models may come with OLED panels, which will use micro-lens technology that reduces the level of power consumption and helps to improve brightness. MLA or Micro-lens arrays use plenty of lenses inside the panel in a uniform pattern for reducing the internal reflection. The perceived brightness is increased by the reflected light without boosting power consumption.

 iPhone 16 Ultra:

Apple might introduce the iPhone 16 "Ultra" in the new upcoming model iPhone 16. This one is going to be available alongside the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max. This model may come with extra camera improvements, a bigger display, & a portless design.

 Solid-State Buttons:

The company wanted to introduce solid-state volume, power, & mute buttons in the iPhone 15 Pro models to replace the physical buttons. However, some technical issues are still not fixed due to which the availability of the feature was pulled from the iPhone 15 Pro & Pro Max. Currently, rumors suggest that the company might delay solid-state buttons until next year. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the company may use the technology for the iPhone 16 Pro.

 People can use these buttons just like a physical button. The difference is that there will not be any actual button presses, which can occur when the user touches it. Hence, a haptic vibration is used for mimicking a button press.

 Apple-Designed Modem Chip:

The company has been working since 2019 at least with the aim to develop its own modem chip & antenna setups. We can expect the debut of the first Apple-designed 5G modem chips in iPhone 16 models next year.

 WiFi 7:

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, these iPhone 16 Pro models might include WiFi 7 technology. This next-generation technology can offer at least 30 Gb/s speed and hit up to 40Gb/s. WiFi 7 can also use 320MHz channels. Additionally, the technology is compatible with 4K quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) technology. It can offer up to 2.4 times faster speed than Wi-Fi 6, although the number of antennas will be the same. The transfer speed of the technology will be very fast. Besides, the technology will provide lower latency & more reliable connectivity.

 USB-C Port:

The use of a USB-C port is expected to be available for iPhone 16 models. You can expect at least one iPhone in 2024 to feature a portless design that will do away with the USB-C connector. Hence, MagSafe or a similar technology will be used for charging and data transfer.

 Under Display Face ID:

According to the rumors, these iPhone 16 Pro models might adopt under-display Face ID technology. But now it seems like the under-display Face ID won't be available until 2025. This feature will permit more display space because it won't require the full Dynamic Island.

 According to a Korean site, we might see the use of this technology as soon as 2024 with the release of the latest models. But Ross Young who is a display analyst thinks that the technology won't be available for two years. According to him, we will not be able to see this feature until the availability of the iPhone 17 Pro. As soon as the feature launches, you might see a circular cutout for the camera.

 iPhone 16 Camera Technology:

The iPhone 16 Pro models may come with a 48-megapixel Ultra Wide lens which allows images with better quality in lower lighting conditions. Generally, a 48-megapixel Wide camera uses pixel binning with the intention of combining 4 pixels and turning them into a "superpixel" for enhanced picture quality. And this technology will function just like the 48-megapixel Wide camera.

 In the iPhone 16 Pro Max, we can expect the use of a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera which may include an eight-part hybrid lens with 2 glass elements & 6 plastic elements. Additionally, it includes improvements for telephoto & ultra-wide camera lenses.

People will see the iPhone 16 Pro & the iPhone 16 Pro Max featuring periscope telephoto lenses in 2024. In 2023, the only device with new camera technology will be the iPhone 15 Pro Max, due to its size constraints.

 With a periscope lens, an angled mirror can reflect light toward the image sensor in the camera. The directional shift permits a "folded" telephoto lens system that can deliver enhanced optical zoom capabilities. iPhone 15 Pro Max can come with 6 times optical zoom. Therefore, we can expect the 16 Pro Max to be available with the same 6× optical zoom feature.

 Camera Layout:

In the standard iPhone 16 models, we can expect to see a vertical camera layout which is quite the same as iPhone 12's camera layout. The company has also used a diagonal layout for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models. However, we still do not know why Apple would swap back to the vertical layout.

 Super Periscope:

We can see a super telephoto periscope camera in the iPhone 16 Pro Max for enhanced optical zoom. A Weibo account that provided correct information earlier has given this information. However, this information still has not been backed up by another trustworthy source.

 "Super" or "ultra" telephoto refers to those cameras which include over 300mm focal length. Currently, the telephoto lens is equivalent to a 77mm lens. If it is accurate, we can see an increase in zoom capabilities.


According to the rumors, the stacked battery technology will be used in iPhone 16 Pro models. As a result, people can experience higher capacity & a longer lifespan.

These batteries are usually available in electric vehicles & medical devices. This is an emerging technology for mobile phones.

 Future iPhone Features:

ProMotion technology can deliver a maximum of 120Hz refresh rates to the iPhone's display. And people can expect this technology to be available in the standard iPhone models which will be available in 2025. Up until 2025, this technology will remain limited to top-quality "Pro" iPhones.

We can expect the availability of features like under-display Face ID and under-display front-facing camera technology when the iPhone 18 will be released in 2026. These features will give the iPhone 18 a unique design without any cutout for the camera hardware.


In this article, we have discussed iPhone 16 rumors so that you can have an idea regarding its design, camera layout, camera technology, and other features. What we can do the maximum is to wait for the release of the iPhone 16 and see what extra features it will include.
