The Apple iPhone 15 series has only been on the market for two months. But the display specifications of the successor already emerged today. The leak comes from supply chain sources claiming that the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will grow to 6.27 inches and 6.86 inches. But the basic technology remains the same – LTPO displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The size of the 16 Pro Max panel sounds a bit hard to believe. However – the current iPhone 15 Pro Max is “only” 6.7 inches. But we may finally have a new indication of an upcoming iPhone 16 Ultra.
With the cheap iPhones 16 and 16 Plus, however, things look completely different. Nothing will change in the sizes of 6.12 inches and 6.69 inches nor in the refresh rate of 60 Hz. This was also confirmed in April by industry insider Ross Young. Young does not see Pro Motion, Apple’s name for 120 Hz, in the basic models until 2025. After all, all iPhone 16 models in 2024 will have the Dynamic Island.
Anyone who has been living with a low-resolution 60 Hz display for years should take this news in stride. But if you have your eye on an expensive Apple iPhone 16 or iPhone 16 Plus, you have to ask yourself whether the phones are still competitive compared to the Android flagship and mid-range. Apart from that, Apple is currently working on a new cooling system and exclusive AI features.
The next Apple iPad mini will have an 8.7-inch OLED display
Apple plans to convert its MacBooks and iPads to OLED displays in the coming years. A new report from ETNews today shed some more light on the next-generation iPad mini. According to the report, Apple will introduce single-stack LTPS OLED panels on its seventh-generation iPad mini and iPad Air models in 2026. The iPad mini is also expected to have a larger 8.7-inch display compared to the 8.3-inch screen of the iPad mini (2021).
According to rumors, Apple will give the starting signal for OLED displays with the new iPad Pro 11 (2024) and iPad Pro 13 (2024). The Pro iPads are expected to feature LTPO panels, while the mini and Air models will get LTPS OLEDs instead. Apparently an iPad Air 12.9 is also planned.
