Traditionally, new Apple iPhone models are announced in September. Assuming this holds true for the Apple iPhone 16, we are only two months away from its launch. However, numerous leaks and rumors about the device's new features are already circulating. The iPhone 16 is rumored to include a new power-efficient display, enhanced zoom lenses, an action button, and several AI-powered features. Before the much-anticipated launch, let's explore these rumors and leaks to better understand what to expect from the upcoming iPhone.

Multiple sources indicate that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models are expected to feature larger display sizes. The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are rumored to come with 6.3 and 6.9-inch displays, respectively. These models are also expected to be taller and wider than their predecessors, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, with slimmer bezels. Meanwhile, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models are set to retain their current 6.1 and 6.7-inch displays.

Reports suggest that Apple plans to introduce two new buttons on the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus. One button will replace the Mute/Switch, and another is entirely new. The Action button, currently available on iPhone 15 Pro models, will be featured across all iPhone 16 models, replacing the traditional mute and switch button and offering multiple functions based on user settings. A new Capture Button, located next to the power button, will respond to pressure and touch, allowing users to zoom in and out and access other features.

Earlier this year, AppleInsider published 3D-printed dummy models of the rumored iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro, showing a vertical camera stack instead of a diagonal one. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports that both Pro models will feature a tetraprism lens, enabling 5x optical zoom cameras. There are mixed rumors about the color options for the iPhone 16 models, with predictions suggesting the introduction of a new rose model for the Pro and Pro Max and a white option for the base models.

All four iPhone 16 models are rumored to feature next-generation Apple chips, with Pro models receiving an A18 Bionic Pro and base models getting a regular A18. AI integration is also a significant focus, with new Siri features and AI tools announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Apple typically holds its iPhone event in September, and we can expect the iPhone 16 to go on sale towards the end of the month.
