I find this a little hard to believe, but, according to a tweet by analyst Ross Young, next year’s iPhone 17 Plus will have a smaller screen than the current iPhone 15 Plus.

The analyst doesn’t elaborate, so I’m skeptical. Speaking of the iPhone 17, Chinese Weibo leaker Instant Digital tweets that next year’s Apple smartphone will sport an anti-reflective display that’s more scratch-resistant than Apple’s Ceramic Shield on current models.

The Ceramic Shield is exclusive to Apple phone. The tech giant  claims it’s tougher than any other smartphone glass, and that it offers four times better drop protection than previous iPhones. Another rumor about the iPhone 17 is that it will be the first ‌Apple smartphone to feature under-panel Face ID technology.

And an April 10 DigiTimes report says that the iPhone 17 Pro will be the first Apple device to get the 2 nanometer processor that Apple manufacturing partner TSMC is making. The company is making progress toward entering the A14 and 2nm process generations as planned,
