The iPhone 16 series, set to launch in at least ten months, is anticipated to bring several enhancements. These potential improvements include larger displays, with analyst Ross Young suggesting an increase in the iPhone 16 Pro models’ screen sizes from 6.1 and 6.7 inches to 6.3 and 6.9 inches, respectively. Reports from a Weibo leaker and leaked details on MacRumors align with this possibility. However, the base iPhone 17 models are expected to maintain the current display sizes.

The A18 and A18 Pro chips are anticipated to deliver significant enhancements. Following the iPhone 15 Pro series’ introduction of the first 3nm-based processor, the A17 Pro, Apple is poised to evolve the A18 chip manufacturing process, potentially improving power efficiency, heat management, and CPU performance. Tech analyst Jeff Pu suggests Apple will produce both a base A18 model and a Pro version, transitioning from the N3E to N3B manufacturing process for potential performance gains.

The iPhone 16 Pro models are speculated to feature 5x optical zoom, building on the exclusive lens introduced in the iPhone 15 Pro Max. A periscope lens is expected on both Pro models, facilitated by the increased display size.

Analyst Jeff Pu predicts an upgrade to the Ultra Wide lens on the iPhone 16 Pro models, boasting a 48MP resolution. This enhancement promises more detailed RAW photography and 24MP standard shots.

One of the anticipated features is the integration of built-in Generative AI in the iPhone 16 models. While details about the extent of integration with iOS 18 remain uncertain, Apple is reportedly working on hundreds of AI servers, aiming to introduce generative AI to iPhone and iPad by late 2024. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests this will be a significant feature, likely debuting towards the end of the following year rather than in the initial September release.

Please note that these projections are based on current speculations, and details may evolve as the iPhone 16 series launch approaches.
