Numerous recent reports indicate that the upcoming iPhone 16 series won’t feature substantial design changes, as Apple shifts its focus towards integrating advanced AI capabilities into this year’s flagship smartphones. A detailed overview of alterations coming to the iPhone 16 Pro models has been shared by the AppleTrack YouTube channel, corroborated by reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Of notable interest in the provided video is the potential reduction in the size of the dynamic island on the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max, aimed at achieving a higher screen-to-body ratio. A render showcased in the video depicts the iPhone 16 Pro featuring a centrally aligned punch-hole cutout.
The fate of the dynamic island, introduced just two years ago, remains uncertain. Furthermore, the latest information underscores Apple’s intention to introduce a dedicated Capture button beneath the power button.
The iPhone 16 Pro is rumored to see an increase in screen size from 6.1 to 6.3 inches, while the Pro Max is expected to boast a 6.9-inch display, up from the current 6.7 inches. Notably, the iPhone 16 Pro is speculated to incorporate a 5x tetraprism optical zoom camera previously exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Additionally, analyst Kuo discloses an upgrade to the 12MP ultra-wide-angle unit on both Pro models, advancing to a 48MP 1/2.55-inch unit.
Concluding the revelations, AppleTrack asserts that the ‘Pro’ designation will persist, accompanied by a new A18 Pro chipset. In related news, Kuo anticipates an enhanced 24MP selfie camera across the entire iPhone 17 lineup in 2025.
