iPhone 16 features and release: The iPhone 15 lineup is now out, and we can officially begin planning for the iPhone 16. Naturally, any rumors or leaks you see this early will be shaky at best–even if they are correct today, plans can and do change, and there is still plenty of time to do so before the iPhone 16 goes into production. The iPhone lineup is always unveiled at a September event and usually ships a week or two later. However, due to supply chain constraints, a certain model or variant has been known to ship in October.
The iPhone and Apple Watch event is usually held on the second Tuesday of September, which this year is September 12. So we may anticipate the iPhone 16 range to be launched on September 10, 2024, with preorders likely to begin on Friday, September 13, and at least some versions shipping on September 20.
Some reports claim that the iPhone 15 Pro Max (also known as the iPhone 15 Ultra) will cost more than the current top-end iPhone, and that this price increase will extend to the smaller iPhone 15 Pro as well. If that happens, we expect the iPhone 16 to be more expensive.
There’s no fresh information about the iPhone 16 line’s pricing, so it’s safe to presume it’ll be the same as the iPhone 15 line, at least until we hear otherwise. That means the normal iPhone 16 will cost $799, and the larger Plus model will cost $899, while the iPhone 16 Pro will cost $1,099, and the iPhone 16 Pro Max will cost $1,199.
So far, there are few information about the iPhone 16 series, other than the fact that it will appear, well, like an iPhone. The Dynamic Island is now available on the full iPhone 15 series, so expect that pill-shaped cutout on the iPhone 16 models as well. According to speculations, Apple has discovered a way to put some of the Face ID sensors behind the display, therefore the iPhone 16 Pro models may feature a smaller camera cutout than ordinary versions.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young, the display size on the Pro versions will increase with a slightly taller aspect ratio. The iPhone 16 Pro will have a 6.27-inch display, while the Pro Max will have a 6.86-inch display (up from 6.12 and 6.69 inches). The increased size is supposedly required to accommodate more advanced camera gear, but it will also add some screen real estate.
iPhone 16 features and release – A17 Bionic
Each new iPhone is accompanied by a new A-series processor, and you can expect that this trend will continue next year. As a result, the iPhone 16 Pro will almost certainly have the A18 Pro chipset, while the non-Pro iPhone 16 models may have a scaled-down version of the A17 Pro, which debuted in the iPhone 15 Pro. It’s way too early to guess on the features and performance of next year’s chip, but it’s unlikely that next year’s non-Pro iPhones would use the same Pro chip as this year’s.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple will use Sony’s new stacked CMOS image sensor technology in the iPhone 16 Pro versions next year, based on a portion of an unrelated supplier report by Ming-Chi Kuo, which should mean sensors with significantly better low-light sensitivity. Furthermore, Kuo stated in September 2023 that the smaller iPhone 16 Pro will get the periscope camera from the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Apple has been working on its own wireless chips for years, and Qualcomm’s CEO predicts that Apple will utilize its own 5G modems beginning in 2024. Obviously, this is subject to continuous successful development and testing, which has proven difficult for Apple and any other business attempting to produce top-tier 5G technology.
Furthermore, Wi-Fi 7 will be available in the iPhone by the fall of 2024. Wi-Fi 6E is only available this year, so Apple may utilize it for another year, but there are now a dozen Android phones with Wi-Fi 7, and Apple would be uncommon if it had to wait until the iPhone 17 in 2025.
