The most awaited Apple upcoming iPhone 16 series is generating buzz with recent leaks, which offered a sneak peek into Pro models. MacRumors posted a series of render images based on prototypes, gives design changes and features.
iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max Design and Display:
Building upon the success of the iPhone 15 Pro’s curved edges and titanium frame, the iPhone 16 Pro, codenamed Diablo, and the iPhone 16 Pro Max, codenamed Lightning, are expected to follow the design cues of their predecessors but with notable changes.
The render images suggest larger screen diagonals for both models, with the iPhone 16 Pro sporting a 6.27-inch display and the 16 Pro Max featuring a larger 6.85-inch screen. This is likely to make room for the 5x tetraprism Telephoto camera to both models, a feature previously exclusive to the larger Pro Max variant in the iPhone 15 lineup.
One of the key highlights includes an upgrade to the camera system. The iPhone 16 Pro series is speculated to house updated 48MP ultrawide cameras. Even the smaller 16 Pro variant might see the inclusion of a 5x tetraprism zoom lens, enhancing the device photography capabilities.
Continuing the tradition from the iPhone 15 Pro series, both iPhone 16 Pro models will sport a multi-purpose Action button. This button, located on the left side, can be configured to perform various functions, providing users with a customizable experience. While there were initial speculations about a larger capacitive Action button with a force sensor (codenamed Atlas), recent designs indicate a return to the standard mechanical Action button.
Innovative Capture Button:
On the right side of the iPhone 16 Pro models, a brand-new Capture button takes center stage. Developed under the codename Nova, this capacitive button with force-sensor functionality is expected to revolutionize video recording. Positioned below the power button, its implementation requires Apple to relocate the mmWave antenna from the right side to the left side.
Material and Color Palette:
Maintaining consistency, the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max will continue to utilize Grade 5 Titanium (Ti-6Al-4V), ensuring a premium feel akin to the iPhone 15 Pro. The prototypes currently showcase a “Silver” color, marketed as “White Titanium.” While the existing colors from the iPhone 15 Pro lineup have been used for testing, there are hints of a new color option in the works, although details remain undisclosed.
As we eagerly await the official launch, these leaks provide enthusiasts with a glimpse into the potential evolution of the iPhone 16 Pro series. Please note that these details are based on leaked render images and prototypes, and Apple may make further adjustments before the official release.
