The rumours regarding the upcoming Apple iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro series started way ahead of the debut of the Apple iPhone 15 series. Apple is slowly fulfilling the orders received for the iPhone 15 series smartphones, which came with various improvements. A recent report revealed Apple is opting for a new thermal design to curb overheating with the upcoming iPhone 16 series smartphones.
The upcoming series will likely consist of iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max. A past report hinted that Apple will likely continue the same display size for the vanilla 16 and 16 Plus as the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus smartphones. South Korean media has shredded more information regarding the display size, panel, and refresh rates of the upcoming iPhones.
Apple to Offer Higher Displays on iPhone 16 Pro Models
Apple is often criticized for offering a 60Hz refresh rate on the vanilla iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus smartphones in 2023. Even budget smartphones provide at least a panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. Previous reports suggested that Apple will continue to offer a similar display size and refresh rate with the upcoming iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus smartphones.
The report shared by Naver (South Korean media) confirms that Apple won’t bring ProMotion display or upgrades in display size with the upcoming vanilla iPhones. The report states that Apple will equip the forthcoming vanilla iPhones with 6.12-inch LTPS 60Hz and 6.69-inch LTPS 60Hz panels. Apple will continue to equip with the Dynamic Island, introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro series smartphones.
Apple is slated to bring partial improvements in the display components to offer a better experience. Ross Young, an analyst, previously confirmed that Apple iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus will be the first Non-Pro models to feature Pro Motion displays. The upcoming iPhone 16 Pro will feature a slightly higher 6.27-inch LTPO display departing from the existing 6.12-inch panel. The iPhone 16 Pro Max (Ultra) will sport a larger 6.86-inch LTPO panel, which departs from the existing 6.69-inch panel.
The report confirms that Apple will continue to equip the Pro series smartphones with Dynamic Island. There were some rumours that Apple is testing punch-hole for the upcoming smartphones. The report states that there are zero chances for Apple to switch to punch-hole from Dynamic Island. Apple is expected to change the display components significantly to counter the existing shortcomings.
In related news, a recent report stated that Apple will equip the upcoming iPhones with a new thermal management system. Apple is tipped to equip the upcoming smartphones with a graphene heat sink instead of the copper heat sink present in the current generation of smartphones. The forthcoming iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are tipped to equip an A18 Pro SoC. The non-Pro models are tipped to equip a new A18 Bionic SoC, departing from the trend of using the previous year’s chipsets with the existing vanilla models.
