The iPhone 15 is still months away and we’re already getting rumors of the iPhone 16. And there’s a reason to be excited: Apple may be introducing new screen sizes for the iPhone 16 Pro models.
Since the iPhone 12, Apple has had the same two Pro models: the 6.1-inch iPhone Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max. But according to Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, he will hear about some new sizes on the Pro models for the iPhone 16 next year.
Young Progress the aspect ratio and screens will increase slightly to around 6.3 inches and 6.9 inches. (He specifically stated that the phone would be 6.2X and 6.8X inches, with the actual dimensions revealed at the Display Week conference on May 23.) But as close as it gets to 6.9 inches, it would still making the biggest iPhone ever and matching it with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, one of the biggest Android phones you can buy. It’s not clear from the report whether the extra screen space will come from a slightly larger frame or thinner bezels, but it probably won’t make much of a difference in usability.
Earlier this year, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that the iPhone 16 generation could include a third model above the iPhone 16 Pro Max. So this new phone could be the legendary iPhone 16 Ultra that was rumored to be released this year, but now appears to have been pushed to next year.
Probably next year will also be the rumor of solid-state buttons that ran into an apparent stumbling block during development. Numerous reports say that Apple planned to introduce solid-state buttons with the iPhone 15 to enable additional functions, including an action button instead of the mute switch.
