Changes coming to iPhone 16 Pro line could include models with 2TB of storage
According to a leaker with the user name "Landsk" posting on a Naver blog, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are going to have some changes compared to the 2023 Pro models. For some time now we have been expecting the iPhone 16 Pro to get a hike to a 6.3-inch screen from the 6.1-inch display on the iPhone 15 Pro. Likewise, the iPhone 16 Pro Max display will get a .2-inch hike to a 6.9-inch OLED panel. These will be Micro Lens Array (MLA) OLED panels which offer improved brightness and improved viewing angles.

Both models will be powered by the A18 Pro application processor (AP) which will be produced by TSMC using its second-gen 3nm process node (N3E). Unlike last year when only the iPhone 15 Pro Max had the Tetraprism periscope lens, this year both iPhone 16 Pro models will be able to snap telephoto images with 5x optical zoom. And the new Pro models will also feature a 48MP ultra-wide camera.

All four iPhone 16 phones will have the new Capture button which can be swiped to zoom in on a subject that you are taking a picture of or recording, lightly pressed to focus on that subject, and pressed all the way down to snap a picture or start a video. The Action Button, which replaced the mute switch on the iPhone 15 Pro models last year, will be found on all four iPhone 16 series models.

The Action button allows users to set the feature to perform certain tasks by pressing the button. These tasks include:

  • Silent mode-turn silent mode on or off
  • Focus-turn a particular Focus on or off
  • Camera-open the camera app
  • Flashlight-turn the flashlight on and off
  • Voice memo-start and stop recording a voice memo
  • Magnifier-open the magnifier app
  • Translate-start translating speech from one app to another
  • Shortcut-open a shortcut
  • Accessibility-quickly access your favorite accessibility feature
  • No Action-button does nothing

The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max might have models offering 2TB of native storage later this year which would top the 1TB storage capacity available for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max. We wonder whether the base storage for the iPhone 16 line will change. Currently, the iPhone 15 Pro Max can be bought with no less than 256GB of storage while all other models start with 128GB.

Battery life is expected to improve as the iPhone 16 Pro Max is expected to get a 4676mAh battery, a 5.3% increase from the 4441mAh cell used on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The iPhone 16 Pro battery could be in line for a 2.5% increase to 3355mAh.

The iPhone 16 series won't be introduced until September which is still about eight months away. Still, trust me on this, it will be here before you know it.
