Near the year's end, reports indicated that the iPhone 16 Pro series would feature larger displays than the current series—the iPhone 15.

This year's Pro and Pro Max models are speculated to gear up with 6.3 and 6.9-inch diagonal screens, respectively.

Jeff Pu has unveiled more intricate details, encompassing the processor, RAM, and potential wireless connectivity options.

The basic models, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, will reportedly incorporate an A18 chip manufactured using 3-nanometer technology. It's unprecedented to endow the more affordable versions with such advanced processors. In contrast, the two pricier versions will come equipped with the A18 Pro chip.

In addition, the standard iPhone models will incorporate 8 GB of RAM, indicating an increment of 2 GB compared to their predecessors.

Enhanced wireless connectivity

A significant update in the Pro series smartphones is the inclusion of the Qualcomm X75 modem. The more cost-friendly versions will continue employing the Qualcomm X70 modem, prevalently used in all of last year's Apple models. The X75 enhances energy efficiency and supports 5G Advanced, leading to superior coverage and swifter data transfer.

All four upcoming iPhone models will also endorse Wi-Fi 6E. Presently, this technology is exclusively available in the Pro series iPhones.
