The leaks for the highly anticipated iPhone 16 have already begun, providing detailed information about the dimensions and weight of all four models. Macrumors, known for providing accurate leaks and information, has shared preliminary details about the upcoming smartphones, giving us a glimpse into what we can expect from Apple in 2024.
It’s important to note that these dimensions and weight specifications may still change over the next year, as prototypes undergo multiple iterations before the final product is released. However, the dimensions of the chassis are not expected to vary significantly.
Starting with the basic models, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, there will be minimal changes in terms of size. The weight of both models will increase by 2 grams each, with the iPhone 16 weighing 173 grams and the iPhone 16 Plus weighing 203 grams. The camera arrangement will return to the vertical orientation seen in earlier iPhone generations, and the mute switch will be replaced by an action button.
When it comes to the Pro models, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, we can expect some interesting innovations. The displays will increase in size, with a 6.3-inch panel for the iPhone 16 Pro and a 6.9-inch panel for the iPhone 16 Pro Max. As a result, both models will be slightly taller and wider, but not thicker, compared to their predecessors.
According to Macrumors’ sources, the dimensions for the iPhone 16 Pro are expected to be 149.6 x 71.45 x 8.25 mm, weighing 194 grams, while the iPhone 16 Pro Max will measure 163 x 77.58 x 8.25 mm and weigh 225 grams. The materials used for the frames and design are not expected to change, with Grade 5 titanium for the frame and a rounded design with flat side edges.
In addition to the action button, a second new button will make it easier for users to snap quick photos. Ice Universe has also shared a bonus detail, stating that the iPhone 16 Pro will have extremely thin display bezels, measuring about 1.3 to 1.4 mm.
It’s important to remember that these leaks are still preliminary and subject to change. The iPhone 16 models are not expected to be released until September 2024. However, this early information gives us an exciting glimpse into the future of Apple’s flagship smartphones.
As we eagerly await the release of the iPhone 16, we can anticipate more leaks and rumors to surface, providing further insights into the features and specifications of these highly anticipated devices.
