  • iPhone 16 Plus: 158.8mm x 75.7mm, with potential minor adjustments to the thickness.

  • iPhone 16 Pro Max: 163mm x 77.58mm x 8.26mm, regarding the screen bezel, the iPhone 16 Pro Max will achieve a thickness of 1.15mm, making it the thinnest ever.

Enhanced Camera Features

The iPhone 16 series makes significant strides in imaging and AI capabilities. One of the standout features will be the inclusion of a new periscope telephoto lens and a dedicated physical imaging button. The iPhone 16 Pro models are expected to feature a 48MP main camera and an upgraded 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens. They will also inherit the 12MP 5x telephoto camera from the iPhone 15 Pro Max, promising substantial upgrades across the board.

New Design Changes

One big change is the removal of the mute switch. Apple is replacing it with an “Action Button.” However, the iPhone 16 Pro’s Action Button will offer enhanced functionality, acting like a traditional shutter button. Users can half-press to trigger autofocus and full-press to capture photos, adding a tactile precision that photography enthusiasts will appreciate.

Performance Boost

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will get the A18 processor. The Pro models will have the A18 Pro chip. Screen sizes are also increasing. The standard models will go from 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches to 6.3 inches and 6.9 inches. All models will support high refresh rates, which means smoother visuals. This is a major upgrade, particularly for the standard editions. This improvement might sway some potential Pro model buyers towards the standard versions instead. Let’s wait and see!

AI Integration

Apple’s commitment to enhancing user experience through AI is evident in its latest partnerships. The company has teamed up with OpenAI to integrate ChatGPT into iOS 18, offering sophisticated conversational AI capabilities. Additionally, Apple is collaborating with Google to incorporate Google’s large language model, Gemini, providing users with even more AI-powered functionalities.

Launch Date and Pricing

The iPhone 16 series is expected to launch in September. The iPhone 16 Pro will start at $999, even with a base storage of 256GB. This price point is the same as last year.

Stay tuned for more updates. The iPhone 16 series promises to be an exciting release with many new features.
