It’s been a few months since the unveiling of the iPhone 15 series, and as expected, the rumor mill is already buzzing with speculations about the iPhone 16. From design tweaks to potential camera upgrades, here’s a roundup of what we know so far.

Release Date:
Anticipated to follow Apple’s traditional fall release pattern, the iPhone 16 lineup is likely to hit the shelves sometime in September 2024. Barring any unforeseen delays like those seen in 2020, where the iPhone 12 launched in October, September seems to be a safe bet for the debut of the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro models.

Price:
While the iPhone 15 lineup didn’t see across-the-board price hikes, except for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, there’s speculation that the iPhone 16 series might see a slight uptick in prices. With component costs possibly on the rise, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a modest increase in the price tags of all iPhone 16 models, although the extent of this increase remains to be seen.

Design:
The iPhone 16 lineup is rumored to bring some significant design changes, particularly to the standard iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models. Leaks suggest a departure from the diagonal camera layout, with a move towards a vertical pill-shaped camera island reminiscent of the iPhone X but slightly larger to accommodate additional lenses and sensors. There’s also talk of a possible Action button addition, according to earlier reports.

For the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max, design changes may be less drastic, with a rumored new Capture button below the sleep/wake button, possibly capacitive and flush with the phone’s frame. Additionally, color options are expected to include soft pink, yellow, green, and blue for the standard models, while the Pro models may feature a new “White Titanium” option alongside the existing titanium finish.

Displays:
While the display sizes for the standard iPhone 16 variants are expected to remain unchanged, reports suggest that the Pro models could see an increase in screen size, with the iPhone 16 Pro potentially sporting a 6.3-inch display and the Pro Max jumping to 6.9 inches. To complement these changes, Apple is said to be implementing a new display technology called Border Reduction Structure (BRS) to reduce bezel size and improve overall display quality.

Specs:
The base model iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are rumored to feature an A17 chip, while the Pro models may see variations of an A18 chip. Reports also hint at improvements in thermal design to address overheating concerns, possibly incorporating graphene thermal systems and metal battery casings. Additionally, the Pro models are speculated to utilize Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X75 modem for enhanced 5G connectivity.

Cameras:
The standard iPhone 16 models are expected to feature a dual-camera layout in a vertical pill-shaped island, while the Pro models may retain the triple-lens setup seen in previous iterations. Camera upgrades are anticipated for the Pro models, with a potential 48-megapixel ultrawide sensor and improvements in optical zoom capabilities.

Battery Life:
Rumors suggest that the iPhone 16 Pro models may benefit from stacked battery technology, offering higher capacity and longer lifespans. This could lead to faster wired and MagSafe charging speeds, addressing a longstanding concern among users.

Software and Updates:
With the iPhone 16 lineup slated to arrive in the fall, it’s expected to debut alongside iOS 18, potentially introducing new AI-powered features exclusive to the new devices. Improvements to Siri, enhanced AI interactions, and better integration with productivity apps are among the rumored enhancements expected to accompany the release of iOS 18.

As with any pre-launch rumors, it’s essential to take these speculations with a grain of salt until confirmed by official announcements from Apple. Nonetheless, the prospect of the iPhone 16 brings excitement and anticipation for what lies ahead in the realm of smartphone innovation.

If you’re looking to rent iPhones in bulk for your next event, you’re in luck. Apple recently released the latest phone in the X series, the iPhone XR. And just like always, when a new iPhone hits the market, the prices on existing Apple products drops – an ideal opportunity for you to test your latest app or smartphone-powered VR headset at a fraction of the cost by renting an older model iPhone, like the 8, 7+, and others. Or you can provide the newest tech for your testers to use by renting the iPhone XR. No matter your iPhone rental needs, we have you covered. Read on to learn more about our wide selection of iPhone rental options available for your next event or business requirement.

iPhone X Series Rentals

How does the XR stack up?

Meant to be an introductory model, the iPhone XR is proving to be a hit with iPhone customers and reviewers alike. With many of the features compatible just as good as or better than the X, XS, and XS Max, the XR offers superb performance at a lower price.

The edge-to-edge 6.1-inch LCD display screen of the XR puts it in the middle between the XS and XS Max. The Gorilla Glass that encases the XR is the strongest front glass ever created, developed by Corning specifically for the iPhone. If weight and self-expression are something you consider in your iPhone selection, the lightweight aerospace-grade aluminum casing of the XR offered in a wide range of colors gives it a distinct advantage over its X series competitors.

The 12-megapixel camera with 5X zoom and three portrait light effects leave it at a slight disadvantage to its sister models, which boast 10X zoom and five portrait lighting effects. Though, if you’re not using your iPhone for more serious photography, this difference may be negligible enough to overlook. The only serious disadvantage that the XR has is that its internal storage is limited to 256GB, but if you’re diligent about backing up materials to iCloud for storage and keeping your phone relatively clutter-free then the cost savings may be enough to offset the lower storage capacity.
