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.


Frequently Asked Questions:


  1. What is the iPhone 16 Ultra?

It is expected that this model will come with a camera system that will be able to capture 3D spatial photos and spatial videos which are displayed in the Apple Vision Pro headset.


  1. What will the iPhone 16 have??

The iPhone 16 models will come with a 48-megapixel Ultra Wide lens. As per the information given by Jeff Pu who is a tech analyst at Hong Kong investment firm Haitong International Securities, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will be equipped with an upgraded 48-megapixel Ultra Wide camera lens that can be used for capturing higher-resolution photos with more detail when you will shoot in 0.5× mode.


  1. What iPhone is coming out in 2027?

It can be expected that the iPhone 19 will be released in 2027.

How to fix your Apple Watch and iPhone when they aren't connecting

Is your Apple Watch not paired with your iPhone? Then, you should be aware because its features can decrease dramatically. However, users can still record a workout & check the time. But they will not get any alerts, messages, or calls on the watch. Fortunately, you can mostly solve the Apple Watch pairing problems in a few minutes.

With the help of WiFi & Bluetooth connections, the iPhone communicates with the Apple Watch. If you face a problem with any of these, it can cause your wearable to be unpaired. The Apple Watch needs at least an iPhone 6/ 6 Plus model or later and it is not compatible with iPad or Android-based devices. Let's learn how to fix your Apple Watch and iPhone when they aren't connecting. 

How To Fix The Problem When Apple Watch Isn't Paired To Your iPhone:

You can see a green icon that will look like an iPhone. It indicates that the Apple Watch is linked to the iPhone. So, if you face any issue, it isn't because the Apple Watch is not connected to the phone.

A blue WiFi symbol indicates that the Apple Watch is linked to a WiFi network. The WiFi symbol will remain highlighted in blue. In order to turn off the WiFi on your Apple Watch, your job is to click on the icon, leading the Watch to attempt to connect to your iPhone. Ensure that your iPhone is placed nearby. When you see that you are unable to connect the Watch, you can try other troubleshooting steps.

A red icon which looks like an iPhone means that the Watch is unpaired from the iPhone. Ensure that the iPhone is nearby. When you go far away from your mobile, the iPhone may have issues getting paired with your Apple Watch.

Make Sure Settings Aren't Preventing Your Apple Watch from Being Paired:

Remember that not always because of a software glitch or hardware failure can cause the Apple Watch to disconnect from the iPhone. We have given here some causes which can be the reasons behind it.

Airplane Mode On The Apple Watch

When you turn on airplane mode, it will shut down all communication. As a result, the Apple Watch can't get connected to the iPhone. Hence, you need to slide up on the clock face screen to open your Watch's control panel. If the mode is active, you will see the Airplane icon ( positioned at the control panel's top) highlighted in orange. Then, you need to click on this to deactivate the mode. Once you do this, your Watch will pair shortly.

Whereas the Series 9 device will be equipped with a new custom S9 chip that Apple claims to be brighter & faster.

 A few new updates to the camera system will be available to the iPhone 15 Pro. This model will be equipped with a 48-megapixel main camera, which has a larger sensor than on iPhone 15. The camera has a "nanoscale coating" that is expected to decrease lens flares and bring higher resolution to regular images. This one will offer an improved low-light performance for night and portrait mode. With the help of the latest iPhone, it is possible to shoot high-resolution pictures in focal lengths of 24, 28, and 35 millimetres. Let's see what was announced at the Last Night Apple event.

What Was Announced In The Last Night Apple Event?

 All New Design:

Apple announced that the entry-level iPhone 15s model will be equipped with an expanded "Dynamic Island'' tool serving as the home of notifications, alerts & other controls.

Besides, this feature will help the users to get two-time optimized & updated portraits with richer color. The special thing about the model is that it comes with a 4K cinematic mode.

 Additionally, the iPhone 15s model comes with the A16 bionic processor, which is the exact chip previously used in the iPhone 14 Pro. This one is equipped with a neural engine used to handle every challenging task, like live voicemail transcriptions on the device.

 The iPhone 15 model includes an Ultra-Wideband chip so that you are able to connect your device with other nearby devices. For instance, you can find friends in an improved way when they share the location in a crowded place.

 This new version of the iPhone is available in five colors: white, black, pink, green, and yellow. It is available in two sizes including a 6.1-inch screen ( iPhone 15) & 6.7 inches ( iPhone 15 Plus).

Introducing The Action Button:

An action button was unveiled in the iPhone 15 Pro, which is the first change made to the ring silencer since the debut of the toggle switch in the iPhone in 2007.

 This button can silence alerts by default. However, you can program this for carrying out several commands. For example, you can record a voice memo and capture an image to activate features such as live speech. All these action button commands will be accompanied with the visual feedback from the Dynamic Island bar at the screen's top. In addition, the company released a new update to the Apple Watch Ultra.

Apple may be testing an M3 Mac Mini

Apple may be testing an M3 Mac Mini

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, in his Power On newsletter, said that the company is testing a new Mac on its campus and he assumed that it is Mac Mini. As per sources from Gurman, the Mac in question features 8 CPU cores, where four are efficiency cores & four are performance cores. Besides, along with ten GPU cores, it has 24GB of memory. As the release of the M2 Mac mini was done in January, the new model is expected to be the quickest refresh for an Apple silicon Mac.

Release and availability:

It runs macOS Sonoma 14.1, which is the first "point update" for the OS that is unreleased yet. macOS Sonoma version 14 is expected to be released in September or early October. At the same time, the 14.1 version is expected to be available in October or November with new M3 Macs.

What does Gurman think about this?

Gurman has also confirmed that along with the new system, there are five Macs in testing, and these are as follows: 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, iMac, and now the Mac mini. Additionally, two MacBook Pros are there, including a 14-inch model with an M3 Pro & a 16-inch model with M3 Max.

We still don't know if the M3 is going to be a 3nm chip or still a 5nm chip like the M2. However, we believe it will be a 3nm chip, which is still a new process. The whole supply is required for the iPhone 15 Pro’s A17 chip. A new report from The Information elaborated on the way Apple deals with TSMC, the company is paying for only working chips from the new process. It causes TSMC to absorb the price of failed chips. Companies mostly purchase entire silicon wafers and want to get working chips as much as possible. We still don't know what Apple pays for the chips or for taking TSMC’s initial 3nm production.

Regarding when the debut of Mac will be done, he thinks it will not come until next year. Based on the company's last earnings call, Gurman says that according to the suggestion of Apple, a double-digit percentage decline can be seen in its Mac revenue in the 4th quarter. According to Apple's suggestion, it is not going to launch any new models until next year.

Other expected lineup:

Depending on what is in the testing at Apple, these are the expected lineup:

  • M3 13-inch MacBook Air (codenamed Mac 15,1 and J513/J613)
  • M3 15-inch MacBook Air (codenamed Mac 15,2 and J515/J615)
  • M3 13-inch MacBook Pro (codenamed Mac 15,3 and J504)
  • M3 iMac (codenamed Mac 15,4, Mac 15,5, J433 and J434)
  • M3 Pro and M3 Max 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros (codenamed Mac 15,7, Mac 15,8, J514 and J516)
  • Possible M3 Mac mini (codenamed Mac 15,12)

Gurman said earlier this year that new M3 computers might drop in this year's second half. Therefore, the expected 2024 release date is a change from the prediction. According to Gurman, the company is testing a computer now at its campus under model identifier Mac 15,12 and he assumed that it's Mac Mini.

The specs mentioned above in this article about Mac Mini are similar to the base model M2 Mac Mini, except the installed memory. Entry-level Apple silicon Macs come with 8GB RAM at least. If Apple jumps to 24GB for the base model, it could surprise users a lot.

Gurman's thinking towards M3-powered Macs:

According to Gurman, there will not be any M3-powered Macs available before the 1st fiscal quarter of 2024, beginning in October. It can bring all the expected M3 Macs up to six as well, as it can cover primary desktops & laptops of the company including iMac. But Gurman doesn't expect M3 versions of the Mac Studio and Mac Pro which jumped to Apple’s M2 silicon at WWDC this year.

He also discussed the launch of the iPhone 15. According to him, the new mobile is expected to be announced either Sept. 12 or 13. It indicates that only a few weeks you have to wait until the reveal of the mobile is done. Although Gurman expects the debut of the first M3-powered Macs will be done as early as October, he never expects the Mac mini to be one of the first models that will come with the M3 chip. These will probably be: the 13-inch MacBook Pro, 13-inch MacBook Air, and 24-inch iMac.

Last month, he said that a new Mac mini wasn't expected to emerge until late 2024 at the earliest. Developer logs indicate that Apple is testing an M3 Mac mini. It indicates that we can see it sooner than expected. The latest Mac mini models are less than a year old as these were introduced in January 2023. The ‌M3‌ chip could be fabricated using TSMC's 3nm procedure to get the best performance & power efficiency improvements to the 5nm-based ‌M2‌ chip in existing devices.

What Could a M3 Mac Mini Offer Editors?

It would bring the total number of expected Macs up to six off the bat. This one is going to be the best Mac available in the market. Mac Mini, which was introduced in 2023, comes with the Apple M2 Chip or the Apple M2 Pro. This Pro version provides a 10-core CPU with 6 performance cores & 4 efficiency cores, and comes with 16-core GPUs.

Video editors use media engines that are powered by hardware-accelerated H.264, HEVC, ProRes, and ProRes RAW. It can show quality speeds and maintain the speed level in an excellent way when you compare this to other options. Like other Mac releases, these features and new specs grabbed the attention of the people.


If you are satisfied using your Mac or other PC setups for the video workflows, you should check this news to know how it changes specs and the overall price. But the judgement on whether it will be able to give a tough competition to other models or not—will be reserved until this M3 Mac Mini is available in the market in 2024.
