Here, we list the latest leaks and rumors that highlight what can be expected from the Apple iPhone 16 series.

iPhone 16 series leaks and rumors: What it says about its design, specs and features

iPhone 16 Display

Apple is expected to go for a new screen size for the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, according to a latest leak. As per the information provided by display analyst Ross Young, the iPhone 16 Pro is likely to get a 6.3 inch display while the iPhone 16 Pro Max will get a screen size of 6.9 inches.

mobile to buy?

Introduction of iPhone 16 Ultra

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is expected to introduce a higher-end iPhone 16 Ultra. The iPhone 16 Ultra will be sold alongside the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max, which means that Apple can launch five models under the iPhone 16 series. Chances are also good that instead of launching 5 models, Apple can replace the iPhone 16 Pro Max with iPhone 16 Ultra or even roll out the Ultra as the extra one on top of the lineup.

Solid-state buttons

According to a report by MacRumors, the solid-state buttons are now expected to be introduced with the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max models. Apple will also change the design of the volume button by bringing a single, unified solid state button.

Under Display Face ID

Apple is expected to bring under display Face ID in the year 2024 with the iPhone 16 models. The under display face ID is expected to cut down on the size of the Dynamic Island and possibly allow for a smaller hole punch front camera.

Periscope Lens

Also similar to iPhone 15 Pro Max's periscope telephoto lens which is likely to support 5x or 6x optical zoom, iPhone 16 Pro Max could also get the same, according to analyst Ming-Cho Kuo. iPhone 16 models will also get a USB-C port like the iPhone 15 models.

Notably, we must add here that the iPhone 16 series is still more than a year away, and all the details provided here are based on leaks and rumors. So, there is always a possibility that these reports may not be what Apple finally rolls out.
