In case you didn’t know, iPhone 16 related rumours have been floating around the market for some time now, alleging everything from how the iPhone 16 is set to launch in 2024’s fall and the designs are impressively larger than that of iPhone 14 or leaks suggesting the size for iPhone 15.

While Apple is currently planning the launch of the iPhone 15 Pro Max model later this year, however, there are speculations about the brand shifting to Ultra model for iPhone 16 instead of iPhone 16 Pro Max. Apple has done this before with its Apple watch line up as well hence making the change imminent.
The CAD-based renders for iPhone Pro 16 Max/Ultra suggest that the screen will be taller measuring 6.9 inches while getting slightly wider eliminating the trouble of holding the cell phone in discomfort which is quite prevalent for iPhone 14 model.
The shift in the frame size suggested by the leaks measures iPhone 15 Pro Max’s width at 76.7 mm, while allegedly the iPhone 16 Pro Max/Ultra will measure 77.2 mm. In addition, the former holds a height range of 159.8 mm while iPhone 16 Pro Max/Ultra is anticipated to be 165 mm tall. That is an extraordinary design change for Apple’s design style.

Hence, the size change in the iPhone 16 model evokes a lot of questions. Well, we still have a year to identify more leaks and draw parallels once the confirmed specifications of iPhone 15 series are out this fall.
