The next generation of iPhones is always highly anticipated, and while the iPhone 15 is still relatively new, rumors have already started circulating about the iPhone 16 lineup. MacRumors has obtained preliminary information regarding the weights and dimensions of the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max, confirming previous reports that the Pro models will feature larger displays.
Starting with the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, it seems that these models will maintain the same dimensions as their predecessors, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. The only difference will be a slight increase in weight, with the iPhone 16 weighing around 2 grams more than the iPhone 15. The iPhone 16 is expected to weigh 173g, while the iPhone 16 Plus will weigh 203g. Both models will be available with the same 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display sizes as the current generation.
Although the dimensions remain the same, there will be some design changes. The base model iPhone 16 and 16 Plus are expected to have a redesigned camera bump, featuring a vertical arrangement similar to the iPhone 12. Additionally, they might come with a capacitive Action button and possibly even a new capacitive “Capture Button.”
In terms of materials, the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus are expected to use the same type of aluminum found on the current iPhone 15 chassis. The devices will also feature matte back glass, but these material choices are unlikely to significantly impact the weight. Instead, the increase in weight is due to minor design changes.
Moving on to the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, these models will see an increase in display size compared to the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The iPhone 16 Pro will have a 6.27-inch display, while the iPhone 16 Pro Max will feature a 6.85-inch panel. This represents a noticeable increase of 0.2 inches for both models, resulting in slightly taller and wider devices compared to their predecessors. Interestingly, the width of both devices aligns with the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
The iPhone 16 Pro is expected to have a thickness of 8.25mm, a height of 149.6mm, and a width of 71.45mm. In comparison, the iPhone 15 Pro has the same thickness but is slightly smaller in height and width. The iPhone 16 Pro Max is also expected to have a thickness of 8.25mm but will be taller and slightly wider than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The exact dimensions are 163.0mm in height and 77.58mm in width for the iPhone 16 Pro Max.
Similar to the base model, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are likely to maintain the Grade 5 Titanium construction used in the iPhone 15 Pro, with the same brushed finish and curved design. These models might also feature a slightly larger Action Button and an entirely new capacitive “Capture Button.”
It’s important to note that the information provided is preliminary and subject to change as the design and development of the iPhone 16 lineup progress. However, significant deviations from the dimensions and weights mentioned in the reports are unlikely. Therefore, the information offered gives us the best insight into the overall size of the iPhone 16 lineup at this early stage.
As the release of the iPhone 16 is still almost a year away, there is plenty of time for more rumors and leaks to surface. For additional details and updates on what to expect from the iPhone 16, you can check out MacRumors’ dedicated rumor roundup page.
In conclusion, the iPhone 16 lineup is rumored to feature a mix of unchanged and slightly altered dimensions, with the Pro models receiving larger displays. While specifications might change as the devices undergo further development, the information available paints an exciting picture of what the future iPhones might offer.
