iPhone 16 Pro and Max: Larger Displays, Enhanced Material, and Dynamic Island
Previously, we reported that the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are expected to feature narrower bezels. This design change aims to increase the display area while maintaining the current physical dimensions. It is speculated that the screen sizes will be upgraded to approximately 6.3 inches and 6.9 inches, with precision measurements extending to two decimal places.
Recently, netizens have leaked information about the iPhone 16 series’ screens, adding details about the materials used: the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will reportedly have screen sizes of 6.27 inches and 6.86 inches, respectively, made from M14 LTPO material. The more affordably positioned iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are expected to use screens made from M12 LTPS material, similar to the current iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, with sizes of 6.12 inches and 6.69 inches, respectively, and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The entire iPhone 16 series is said to adopt a centered punch-hole design, featuring the Dynamic Island.
According to reliable sources, Apple plans to use Micro-Lens OLED panels in the iPhone 16 series and has requested solutions from both Samsung and LG to assess the necessity of integrating this new technology for screen upgrades. Micro-Lens technology is anticipated to make the iPhone’s display brighter and more energy-efficient, but it may also present challenges such as a narrower viewing angle, and reducing visibility from the sides.
With over a year remaining until the launch of the iPhone 16 series, Apple has ample time to adjust the design of the devices. However, if production, cost, or supply chain issues arise that do not align with Apple’s plans, the company may reconsider the initiative to increase screen sizes.
