Leak suggests iPhone 16 Pro / Max will be larger than its predecessor

According to previous rumors, the iPhone 16 Pro may have the narrowest bezels in the history of the phone. In addition, we now have more information about the dimensions of the iPhone 16 series devices.

A recent report from IT Home suggests that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will be slightly larger than their predecessors. However, the thickness will remain unchanged. The source of the information is unofficial renders of iPhone 16 devices, which also indicate the dimensions. You can see how much the dimensions have changed compared to their predecessors in the table below.

Phone model Height (mm) Width (mm) Thickness (mm)
iPhone 15 Pro Max 159.9 76.7 8.25
iPhone 16 Pro Max 163.03 77.58 8.25
iPhone 15 Pro 146.6 70.6 8.25
iPhone 16 Pro 149.61 71.45 8.25
iPhone 15 Plus 160.9 77.8 7.8
iPhone 16 Plus 160.88 77.75 7.8
iPhone 15 147.6 71.6 7.8
iPhone 16 147.63 71.62 7.8

As you can see, the basic iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are almost the same size as their predecessor. However, the camera module has been redesigned, which reportedly allows the phone to capture spatial video, similar to Apple’s Vision Pro headset.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously noted that the iPhone 16 Pro Max may have a longer battery life than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. This may be due to the larger battery pack inside. According to previous rumors from earlier this year, the Pro models may also get a slightly larger 1/1.14-inch primary sensor and a periscope telephoto lens. All of this requires more internal space, which may be the reason for the increase in the size of future iPhone Pro models.

In addition to the rendering, Weibo tipster “Instant Digital” (a Chinese microblogging site) shared information about the bezel widths of all four iPhone 16 models. However, it is important to note that his size predictions are slightly different from what we see in the latest render. To be more precise, Instant Digital predicted that the height and weight of the iPhone 16/Plus will be 2mm smaller than its predecessor, while the latest render claims that they will remain the same. However, both sources are unofficial and you should take them with a pinch of salt.
