First Look at iPhone 16 Pro Max and iPhone 15 Pro Max: A Sneak Peek into Apple’s Future Releases

Leaked CAD-based renders reveal potential changes in size and branding for upcoming iPhone models

The iPhone 15 family is set to make its debut later this year, offering exciting new features and enhancements. However, in an unexpected turn of events, leaked CAD-based renders have given us an early glimpse into the iPhone 16 Pro Max, anticipated to launch in the fall of 2024. These renders also suggest the possibility of a new naming convention, with the iPhone 16 Ultra potentially replacing the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The side-by-side comparison of the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the iPhone 16 Pro Max / Ultra reveals a noticeable increase in size for the upcoming model. Reports indicate that the iPhone 16 Ultra will feature a much taller screen, with estimates placing its width at 77.2 mm, slightly wider than the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s 76.7 mm. This pushes the boundaries of comfort for most users and represents Apple’s continued efforts to push the limits of smartphone design.

The height of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to be approximately 159.8 mm, while its successor, the iPhone 16 Pro Max, will grow to around 165 mm. This represents a significant shift, particularly for Apple, known for its conservative approach to such changes. The smaller iPhone 16 Pro will also experience an increase in size compared to the iPhone 15 Pro, likely due to accommodating a periscope zoom lens.

Curiously, the iPhone 15 Pro Max already features a periscope zoom lens, making it unclear why the iPhone 16 Pro Max requires further enlargement. It’s important to note that these details are based on early rumors, and as the launch of the iPhone 16 family is still approximately 14 months away, more information is expected to surface in the coming months.

Apple enthusiasts and technology enthusiasts alike are eagerly awaiting the unveiling of the iPhone 15 family later this year. As we look ahead to the future, these leaked renders provide an intriguing preview of what may be in store for Apple’s flagship devices in 2024. Stay tuned for further updates as we delve deeper into the evolving rumors surrounding the iPhone 16 series.
