iPhone 16: Expected Release Date

The iPhone 16 is anticipated to launch in September this year, following Apple's annual schedule. Historically, after the launch event, iPhones typically ship one to two weeks later. However, Apple has occasionally deviated from this pattern due to production issues, such as supply chain disruptions. For instance, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 14 Plus were shipped in October, but generally, iPhones are released in September.

iPhone 16: Expected Design and Display

The design of the iPhone 16 will focus on screen size. Since the iPhone 12, there have been no major changes in display sizes, but this is expected to change with the iPhone 16 Pro models. According to MacRumors, the iPhone 16 Pro is rumoured to feature a 6.3-inch display, while the iPhone 16 Pro Max will have a 6.9-inch screen. The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will likely retain the same display sizes as their predecessors, at 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively.

Ross Young, a display analyst, also suggested the iPhone 16 Pro models will have larger screens, though he provided slightly different measurements. This discrepancy may be due to differences in the actual display area versus the viewable display area.

iPhone 16 Solid-State Buttons (Rumoured) 

There were plans to introduce solid-state buttons with the iPhone 15 Pro models, but they were replaced with a customisable action button. Solid-state buttons simulate real button presses using haptic feedback. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, these buttons are expected to debut on the iPhone 16 Pro models, incorporating two additional Taptic Engines to enhance the feedback experience.

iPhone 16: Camera Upgrades (Expected) 

The iPhone 15 Pro Max introduced a new zoom lens with a tetra-prism design, allowing for 5x optical zoom. According to Digital Chat Station, the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max are rumoured to adopt this tetra-prism telephoto camera. Additionally, the iPhone 16 Pro models are expected to feature a 48MP ultrawide camera, improving light gathering and performance in low-light environments. This upgrade aims to enhance the quality of landscape photos by addressing the current ultrawide camera's slight drop in sharpness compared to the main camera. Furthermore, the rear cameras on the iPhone 16 Pro models may have a stacked design to improve light capture and dynamic range, potentially boosting Night Mode performance.

iPhone 16: Specifications (Expected) 

The iPhone 15 Pro models come with 8GB of RAM, while the lower-tier models have 6GB of RAM. The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are expected to increase their RAM to 8GB. The successor to the A17 Pro chip, though expected to offer significant performance improvements, may be less efficient, possibly affecting battery life. The iPhone 16 Pro models will likely support Wi-Fi 7, offering transfer speeds exceeding 40 Gbps, significantly faster than the current WiFi 6E capabilities.
