iPhone 16 Pro models rumored to get a screen size boost

The iPhone 15’s screen size is anticipated to be essentially unchanged from the current generation, but the Pro models in 2024 are expected to feature larger displays.

The iPhone 16 has already been leaked by a number of well-known sources. Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the devices will be “slightly larger,” and display analyst Ross Young provided a precise measurement of the growth: 6.2 inches for the iPhone 16 Pro and 6.8 inches for the Pro Max/Ultra.

The future iPhone will be even larger, according to leaker Unknownz21, who earlier this month predicted screen sizes of 6.3 inches and 6.9 inches:

The insider claims that the iPhone 16 Pro models will grow by “a couple tenths of an inch diagonally,” making them the largest iPhones to date, in the most recent issue of Gurman’s Power On newsletter. Gurman points out that the larger size might increase Apple’s ability to compete with Samsung’s large-screen devices, such as the Galaxy S23 Plus (6.6 inches) and Galaxy S23 Ultra (6.9 inches), as well as give the company more room inside for hardware upgrades like better cameras and bigger batteries.

For those who believe that the current iPhones are the ideal size for the hand, this isn’t necessarily bad news. It’s possible that a large portion of the additional screen space will fit within the existing frame of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 Ultra, eliminating the need to significantly increase the device’s footprint. Apple appears to be making incredible progress in reducing the bezels on this model. Since the standard iPhone 16 and 16 Plus are anticipated to maintain their respective sizes of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches from the current generation, they would also carry on Apple’s recent practice of upselling the Pro models from its standard iPhone models.

Subtle improvements like ProMotion and enhanced camera performance were also made to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. In conclusion, a bigger screen size might be a reason to hold out for the iPhone 16, but this year’s improvements are also not to be overlooked. A switch to USB-C, Dynamic Island for all, a new mute button, and a periscope camera for the iPhone 15 Ultra model are anticipated iPhone 15 features arriving in September.
