iPhone 16 set to be released in 2024

November 19, 2023 By admin

Apple is likely to expand the size of the iPhone 16 Pro to 6.3 inches and the size of the iPhone 16 Pro to 6.9 inches in the iPhone 16 series, marking the first big size boost in several years. The iPhone 16 Pro models will have size adjustments, but the iPhone 16 models will remain the same size as the iPhone 15 models.

Apple is developing new A-series CPUs based on the newest N3E 3-nanometer node for the iPhone 16 range. We may see some gains in efficiency and performance, but we haven’t heard anything specific about what we may expect. Capacitive volume buttons, a power button, and an Action Button are reported to be included in all four iPhone 16 versions, and the new iPhones are also said to contain an extra mystery button that we don’t know what it’s for.

This collection covers early reports regarding the iPhone 16 range, and because Apple has lots of time to adjust its plans, the information in this roundup may change when Apple improves the design of the forthcoming iPhone models.

Size Changes

According to various reports, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will feature higher display sizes. The display on the iPhone 16 Pro will be 6.27 inches (rounded to 6.3), while the display on the iPhone 16 Pro Max will be 6.85 inches (rounded to 6.9).

The proportions of the iPhone’s body will grow in tandem with the rise in display size. Both variants are believed to be taller and broader than the iPhone 15 Pro models, with the weight increasing somewhat owing to the increased dimensions.

Display Technology

Micro-lens technology might be used in the iPhone 16 OLED displays to boost brightness while also lowering battery consumption. To decrease internal reflection, micro-lens arrays (MLA) utilize a consistent pattern of billions of lenses inside the screen. The reflected light enhances perceived brightness while consuming less electricity.

Because to upgraded materials, the OLED panels utilized in the iPhone 16 series will be more power efficient.

iPhone 16 Ultra

Apple may release a high-end iPhone 16 “Ultra” with the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max with the iPhone 16. The gadget would be positioned as the top-tier iPhone offering, with more camera enhancements, a larger display, and maybe even a portless design.

Haptic Buttons

Apple had planned to include solid-state volume, power, and mute buttons in the iPhone 15 Pro models, however owing to “unresolved technical issues,” the feature was removed from the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

Instead, reports say that Apple will delay the introduction of solid-state buttons until 2024, instead include them in the iPhone 16 variants. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple would “likely” adopt the technology with the iPhone 16 Pro, and if that happens, we may also see the unified button design that was anticipated for the iPhone 15 Pro models.

Solid-state buttons function similarly to physical buttons, but there is no real button push when you contact them. Instead, a haptic vibration is employed to simulate a button push and give you the sense of pressing down even when the button is not physically moved.

Solid-state technology is already used by Apple for the Touch ID Home button on the iPhone SE and the trackpad on the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models. On these gadgets, a push gesture seems like you’ve pressed a button, but it’s actually a solid surface with haptic feedback. Solid-state button technology can increase dust and water resistance because it does not require a physical depressing motor, but it does necessitate more circuitry within the iPhone. Apple was supposed to be adding two more Taptic Engines to the iPhone 15 Pro models to power the solid-state buttons, so the iPhone 16 Pro models will probably operate the same way.

Apple may employ solid-state technology for both the Action Button and a new capacitive button, while preserving traditional buttons for volume and power management.

While several rumors have suggested that the iPhone 16 Pro models will use the technology that Apple originally planned for the iPhone 15 Pro models, according to context provided by Apple supplier Cirrus Logic, an analyst at Barclays believes that Apple does not intend to introduce solid-state buttons in the iPhone 16.

A-Series Chips

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are believed to employ an A17 chip, although it’s not the same A17 Pro chip seen in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Apple is employing TSMC’s N3B process for the iPhone 17 Pro processor, but will switch to the lower-cost N3E technology for the next regular “A17” chip next year.

The N3B is TSMC’s initial 3-nanometer node developed in collaboration with Apple, but the N3E is a more inexpensive node with lower transistor density, poorer efficiency, and greater yield.

Apple does not normally build semiconductors particularly for basic iPhone models, instead employing the same chips as the Pro variants or the chip from the previous year’s iPhone models. The iPhone 15, for example, uses the A16 processor, which had previously been launched in the iPhone 14 Pro.

While one rumor claims that Apple would designate the processor used in basic iPhone 16 models the “A17,” analyst Jeff Pu believes that Apple will instead utilize the A18 and A18 Pro naming conventions, with all iPhone 16 models containing some form of A18-series chip. Pu believes that all of the chips will employ the N3E manufacturing method, and that the Pro chips may have an additional GPU core not seen in the ordinary chips.

iPhone 16 Camera Technology

The iPhone 16 Pro models may include an improved 48-megapixel Ultra Wide lens, enabling for better low-light photography. It would most likely function in the same way as the 48-megapixel Wide camera, which uses pixel binning to combine data from four pixels into a single “super pixel” for increased image quality.

The 48-megapixel wide-angle camera on the iPhone 16 Pro Max will supposedly have an eight-part hybrid lens with two glass components and six plastic pieces, as well as Apple improvements to the telephoto and ultra wide camera lenses.

Instead of being confined to the bigger Pro Max, both the iPhone 16 Pro and the iPhone 16 Pro Max might feature 5x Telephoto lenses in 2024.

iPhone 16 Launch Date

The iPhone 16 models are expected to come out in September 2024, and they will follow the 2023 iPhone 15 models.
