Rumor: these features really make the iPhone 16 much better!

It will still take a while before the iPhone 16 appears, but the first rumors are already emerging. The iPhone 16 will have these new features.

The iPhone 16 will have the following new features

We have collected all the rumors that have been circulating so far for you. It turns out that (coincidentally or not) the iPhone 16 will have no fewer than 16 new features. We have listed the most important ones for you.

Bigger screen

The iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max are expected to have a larger screen, 6.27 inches and 6.85 inches respectively (for comparison, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have screens of 6.1 and 6.7 inches respectively) .

Vertical camera layout

The standard iPhone 16 models will likely have a vertical camera layout, similar to that of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. It’s not entirely clear why Apple is returning to this layout. Possibly because it enables the devices to record Spatial Video for the Apple Vision Pro.

A new button

Another new iPhone 16 feature is likely a new button below the lock button on the right. It is still unclear what the button is for, Apple apparently calls the button the ‘Capture Button’.

Support for WiFi 7

The Pro models of the iPhone 16 are expected to come with Wi-Fi 7 support, allowing data transfer over 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands simultaneously. This should ensure higher speeds and more reliable connections.

5x optical zoom

Both Pro models of the iPhone 16 will probably have a 5x optical zoom, something that is still reserved for the Pro Max on the iPhone 15.

iPhone 16 Ultra

Apple may introduce a high-end iPhone 16 Ultra alongside the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max. The device could have additional camera improvements, a larger display and perhaps even a design without a physical connection.
