How will the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro have different screens?

This year, the new iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro pair will have larger and brighter screens than their predecessors.

In fact, the screen is the most important part of a smartphone. Therefore, rumors about this department attract a lot of attention. Although Apple's annual upgrade pace is usually slow, according to sources, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro pair will have many small adjustments.

The screen of the iPhone 15 series is relatively similar to its predecessor. Therefore, the iPhone 16 series will have significant screen upgrades, especially when the 13-inch iPad Pro is integrated with a parallel OLED screen.

Below is a summary of rumors about the screens of iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro according to Apple Insider:

Screen size

This year, the iPhone 16's screen will be bigger and better. According to rumors in May 2023, before the iPhone 15 Series is released, an increase in screen size for the iPhone will take place. Analyst Ross Young said that iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have screens measuring 6.2 inches and 6.8 inches, respectively.

In theory, this should be a small increase when compared to the iPhone 15 Pro (with a 6.1-inch screen) and iPhone 15 Pro Max (with a 6.7-inch screen).

The reason why Apple changed the screen size is obviously so that the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max models fit the periscope lens. The addition of a large horizontal lens assembly will require some changes to the internal design, especially in terms of space.

Bezel of iPhone 16 & iPhone 16 Pro

To get a larger screen, Apple could thin the bezel a bit to keep the overall size of the iPhone from increasing too much. But that could cause some production problems.

The screen border of the iPhone 16 Pro will be extremely thin.

In April, The Elec reported that supply chain members were having problems shrinking screen bezels, affecting productivity.

A month ago, it was reported that the ultra-thin bezels would use Border Reduced Structure (BRS) technology. However, this technology had problems when applied to the bottom edge.

Thermal dissipation issues have improved but remain a challenge for suppliers.

Increase the brightness of the screen of iPhone 16 Pro

Some rumors claim that the iPhone 16's screen may be much brighter than previous versions.

In September 2023, some sources said that Apple is considering Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology. Previously, the company had researched but had not used them for screens.

This idea can increase the screen brightness of OLED displays. One of the problems with this technology is that it reduces the viewing angle of the screen, which is difficult for Apple to accept.

By May, another leak from the Setsuna Digital account on social network Weibo (China) said that iPhone 16 Pro models will have a screen with a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits and a maximum HDR brightness of 1,600 nits. Compared to the iPhone 14 Pro, they have a maximum brightness of 200 nits greater while the brightness for HDR content remains the same.

At the same time, the source also stated that Apple will not use the Tandem OLED structure introduced on the 2024 iPad Pro. That system uses two OLED layers instead of one, which helps increase overall brightness.

Face ID under the screen

One stumbling block for iPhone users over the years has been the TrueDepth camera, which allows Face ID to work. Apple has switched from "rabbit ears" to the fancy Dynamic Island and this year, the company may completely remove this detail.

Back in February 2023, The Elec said that implementing Face ID under the screen could happen on the iPhone 16 Pro, allowing for a full-screen display.

The biggest problem is operability. For camera modules with 4 million pixels, it is difficult for Apple to maintain its 12MP sensor.

Meanwhile, in April 2022, Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that this technology will launch in 2024, for iPhone 16 Series.

Parts for iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro are being produced

In just a few months, the iPhone 16 series will launch.

Their screen models have begun mass production. In May, Apple is preparing to approve its suppliers to begin display production, Elec reported.

specifically, Samsung Display received approval to produce screens at the end of May. LG Display was also allowed to supply screens for the new iPhone in mid-June and BOE followed.

LG and Samsung are expected to produce screens in multiple versions. The report added that BOE is producing screens for other products, not iPhones.
