There is still a long way to go before the release of new smartphones from Apple, but analysts are already collecting data on the next models. Not so long ago, Ming-Chi Kuo already mentioned the iPhone 16 line in his forecast for next year’s smartphones. 

Another part of this year’s upgrades was shared by analyst Jeff Pu, which was brought to the attention of 9to5Mac.

So in the spring, iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will feature new A18 processors, which will be manufactured using a 3-nm process technology. They will traditionally increase performance compared to their predecessors and improve energy consumption. The new smartphones are also expected to have more RAM: the current iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models have 6 GB of RAM, while the next versions will increase this figure to 8 GB.

At the same time, the “junior” iPhone models will receive support for Wi-Fi 6E, which is currently only available in Pro versions. But the 5G module will remain from the entire current lineup – Qualcomm X70.

The iPhone 16 should increase the amount of RAM and get a faster connection to the network

In turn, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have a more powerful Qualcomm X75 modem. This means that this year, regular and Pro models will also differ in terms of data transfer speeds in a 5G network. It is possible that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will also have Wi-Fi 7 support, which has already been presented by competitors’ gadgets at CES 2024.

Of course, Pro models will also have an updated A18 Pro processor.

Additionally, Mr. Pu also confirms that the iPhone 16 Pro will feature updated ultra-wide-angle cameras, which will increase the resolution from 12 to 48 MP. Such an improvement should affect the quality of spatial video recording, which can then be viewed in the Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset.
