With the addition of these two important and attractive features to the iPhone 16 Pro, it might be better to wait for this generation and buy the iPhone 14 and 15.
In the past few weeks, the rumor market about the iPhone 15 Pro has been heating up, and every day news about the new features of this long-awaited flagship is leaking out. However, according to new information, potential buyers of the iPhone 15 should hold off until the iPhone 16 Pro is announced.
While the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to be equipped with the new and powerful A17 chip and have a display with much narrower bezels than the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple analyst Ming Chiko predicts that the iPhone 16 Pro will likely come with a periscopic lens and a larger display. Those are two significant upgrades.
iPhone 16 Pro is coming with big changes
In other words, the iPhone 16 Pro could be a possibly smaller and cheaper version of the iPhone 15 Ultra, which, according to rumors, will enter the market this year instead of the Pro Max series. According to Kuo, it is rumored that the Ultra version will be equipped with a periscopic lens due to the larger screen size compared to the iPhone 15 Pro. According to predictions, the Pro and Ultra versions will be available with 6.1 and 6.7 inch screens, respectively.
However, the possible increase in the dimensions of the iPhone 16 Pro in 2024 will allow Apple to add a periscopic lens to the back of the device. Koo’s comments follow earlier rumors suggesting Face ID components and a front-facing camera under the display. Just like many Android phones that have a fingerprint scanner hidden under the display.
This upgrade will likely come in the form of an upgraded dynamic island, which is currently visible as a fancy digital notch on the iPhone 14 series. Additionally, both the Ultra and Pro versions of the iPhone 15 are rumored to have solid-state power and volume buttons. However, Apple analysts now predict that these buttons will enter the production line instead of the iPhone 16.
Solid state buttons use haptic vibrations to simulate the sensation of being touched. However, Apple reportedly needs more time to develop the touch motors needed to power the technology.
