Even though we’ve learned quite a bit about the iPhone 15 series over the past few months, we still don’t know for sure how many of these alleged novelties will actually be integrated into the new phones. But it seems that the leakers are already tired of talking about the iPhone 15, already having information about the iPhone 16. We have heard in the past that the 2024 generation could bring new changes, especially in the screen chapter, and now we can see how much big will be the differences, thanks to 9to5mac.
Even though the iPhone 15 hasn’t been released yet, we already have unofficial information about the iPhone 16
The website has published images based on CAD plans of next year’s iPhone 16 “Ultra”, which could come with a screen increase over the current Pro Max model. It looks like the iPhone 15 will keep the “Pro Max” name again this year, and in 2024 it will be replaced by the Ultra, which will make the switch from a 6.7″ to a 6.9″ screen. The increase is vertical, however, with the two phones having a similar width (76.7mm, compared to 77.2mm on the Ultra).
In height, the 2024 flagship will be 165mm, compared to 159.8mm, so we’re talking about a 5mm increase. Most likely, the Ultra model will be more suitable for watching movies with ultrawide aspect ratio in landscape mode. In fact, iPhone screens will on this occasion adopt an aspect ratio closer to that of Android phones, which have been using 20:9 and 21:9 screens for several years already.
In the case of the iPhone 16 Pro model, the screen will increase from 6.1 to 6.3”, the difference being also vertical. The increase in dimensions of the smaller model will, however, provide the necessary space inside to integrate a periscopic zoom camera. The iPhone 15 Pro will not have such a camera, which is rumored to be reserved exclusively for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Of course, plans for the next generation of iPhones are in the early stages. Many changes may take place over the next year, which is the time Apple has to finalize all the details before sending the phone into production. The iPhone 15 series has already been completed by now, and these models could be sent to factories to begin assembly. It looks like physical buttons aren’t going away from the iPhone just yet, despite past rumors. Apple ran into problems in the development process that convinced the company not to adopt this technology on this generation of devices. However, the silent mode slider might still disappear.
