Five major updates coming to iPhone 16

iPhone 16 promises 5 key updates

     Every year Apple keeps the intrigue regarding the next iPhone. How do you think the iPhone 16 lineup will receive an even more interesting set of features than the iPhone 15?

     Today we'll talk about five expected updates to the iPhone 16.

Capture Button

     According to reports, all four iPhone 16 models will have a “capture button” on the right side below the power button.

     Its purpose is to take photos and videos quickly. According to rumors, it will be a regular mechanical button with support for several levels of pressure. For example, you need to press it lightly to focus and then press it again to take a photo or start recording.

     In addition, as a bonus, Apple will equip the base iPhone 16 models with an action button, which has been already presented in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Screen sizes

     Apple uses display sizes of 6.1 and 6.7 inches for all iPhone generations, starting with the twelfth lineup. However, in 2024, the company decided to make fundamental changes and increase the diagonal.

     The iPhone 16 Pro is expected to be 6.3 inches, and the iPhone 16 Pro Max is expected to be 6.9 inches.

     Most likely, the company increases the diagonal of the screens, because the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will be approximately 3 mm taller and 1 mm wider. The thickness will remain the same, but the weight will become a little more due to the size jump.

     It is known that such changes will affect only the Pro versions; the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus will receive 6.1 and 6.7-inch displays.

Updated camera

     As for the changes in the camera, they will appear in all iPhone 16 models:

  • iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will introduce a new vertical lens layout that will allow you to capture spatial video. Currently, this feature is only available on the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max models.

  • The biggest update is focused on the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max. Apple wants to build a 48-Mp ultra-wide-angle camera into the phone, that will allow you to take high-quality photos in low-light conditions.

     The company also plans to introduce a telephoto lens with 5x zoom for the iPhone 16 Pro. Apparently, this decision was made due to the increased size of the smartphone.

Faster 5G

     The Pro versions of Apple are going to use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon X75 processor. Chips aren't usually emphasized as a major feature, especially after the move to 5G, but the X75 will be significantly faster while consuming less power.

     There is 2nd generation AI inside the modem chip. According to Qualcomm, it will increase speed and improve coverage, connection reliability, and location accuracy. There is hope that there will be no more connection problems in the elevator, metro, or garage.

     The X75 is rumored to be coming exclusively to Pro models in 2024, while the standard versions will continue to be powered by the X70.

     Improved 5G isn't the only thing Apple could add. Likely, it will also include Wi-Fi 7 in the iPhone 16 Pro with support for speeds up to 40 Gbps. Wi-Fi 7 will help reduce connection latency and result in a more reliable connection.

     We expect to see Wi-Fi 6E in base iPhone 16 models, which will make connecting to 6GHz networks possible.

Artificial Intelligence

     In 2024, Apple will focus on AI. Although artificial intelligence is software-based, it requires hardware to support it.

     There are rumors that Apple will make major changes based on AI in iOS 18 and implement it into the operating system.

     Additionally, all four iPhone 16 models are expected to feature the A18 chip, built on Apple's 3nm process to improve efficiency and performance.

     The move to a 3nm chip will allow the company to introduce the latest artificial intelligence features. The A18 will include a faster Neural Engine with more cores.

     Some sources suggest that Apple is so eager to implement AI processing in the smartphone to maintain privacy. To make this possible, high performance is needed.
