With the iPhone 15 being announced today, let’s move on to rumors about next year’s iPhone 16.
In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — Jeff Pu, a tech analyst at Hong Kong investment firm Haitong International Securities says the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will feature 8GB of memory and an A17 Bionic chip fabricated with TSMC’s N3E process. Apple’s standard iPhone models have had 6GB of memory since 2021’s iPhone 13.
Here are other rumors about next year’s iPhones:
° iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models should feature Wi-Fi 7 support and an upgraded 48-megapixel Ultra Wide camera lens.
° They will adopt a stacked rear camera sensor design across the lineup in 2024 after (mostly) similar adoption in this year’s standard iPhone 15 models.
° The iPhone Pro Max could be the first to feature a super telephoto periscope camera for dramatically increased optical zoom.
° iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models will sport “around” 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch display sizes (give or take a decimal point or two).
° Some models may sport under-display FaceID technology and haptic buttons.
