With rumors of Apple planning to add a whole new high-end level to the iPhone 17 series in 2025, this could be the year Apple unveils its boldest the “Pro Max” model is an upgrade to the iPhone 16 that stands head and shoulders above its siblings.

If you've been waiting for the iPhone 16 Pro Max, here are the five biggest changes rumored to be coming to Apple's biggest smartphone. The iPhone 16 series is expected to be released in the fall, around mid-September. All the details were voiced by MacRumors.

1. Larger Size

According to multiple sources, the iPhone 16 Pro Max will increase in size, potentially making it the largest iPhone in Apple's history. The diagonal of the device will be 6.9 inches (compared to 6.7), and is expected to be taller and wider than last year's iPhone 15 Pro Max. Although the thickness will remain the same, the weight will increase slightly due to the larger size. To be precise, this will be the first iPhone size increase since the iPhone 12 series, but it will also be another blow to those users who prefer smaller phones.

2. Bigger screen

It's logical to assume that a larger device would have a larger display, but Apple doesn't just rely on larger physical dimensions to make viewing more immersive. For its iPhone 16 Pro models, Apple is said to use Border Reduction Structure (BRS) technology, which allows for a more compact and efficient arrangement of circuitry under the display, resulting in even thinner bezels. Last year, Apple shrunk the bezels on the iPhone 15 Pro models, using low-pressure injection molding, or LIPO, to reduce the size of the display bezel to 1.5 millimeters (compared to 2.2 millimeters on the iPhone 14 models).

3. Bigger camera

The iPhone 16 Pro Max is expected will feature an improved 12% larger main camera with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX903 sensor with a stacked design for better performance, a 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for high-quality image data conversion, and digital gain control (DCG) for better dynamic range and noise control. It is also reported to include a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, compared to the 12-megapixel lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

4. Greater battery capacity

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo), Apple will use battery cells with increased energy density, which should provide longer battery life, possibly even using the same battery size as existing models. Early rumors also suggested that both iPhone 16 Pro models would use stacked battery technology, which could lead to increased capacity and battery life. According to other rumors, this year's iPhone 16 Pro Max will boast an even longer battery life of over 30 hours (compared to 29 hours in the iPhone 15 Pro Max).

5. More storage capacity

According to a Korean rumor, Apple's upcoming iPhone 16 Pro models will be available with a new maximum storage capacity of 2 TB, putting them at one level with iPad Pro. The move is said to be a result of Apple's recent switch to higher-density Quad-Level Cell (QLC) NAND flash memory for models with higher memory capacities. Using QLC NAND can allow Apple to pack more memory into a smaller space, and it's cheaper than the Triple-Level Cell (TLC) NAND used in today's iPhones.
