All signs point towards a September 2024 release date, as has been the standard for a few years. It seems the price will be similar to last year’s iPhone 15, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

The rumour mill reckons we can expect three handsets: the standard iPhone 16, the iPhone 16 Pro, and the iPhone 16 Pro Max. Some say there may even be an iPhone 16 Ultra model…

We’re not likely to see very revolutionary changes to the design, as Apple pretty much has it sussed at this point. Expect rounded corners, a lightweight build, ultra-thin bezels around the display, and two camera lenses on the back sitting in a slimmed-down bump.

There should be an Action button in place of the mute button – as per the iPhone 15 Pro – and a new pressure- and touch-sensitive Capture button on the side. Among other uses, it’s positioned to help you take pictures easily.

Expect a longer-lasting battery, too. Not only is the battery itself set to get a boost, with new ‘stacked battery technology’, it seems the display will be more power-efficient as well.

As is standard for new iPhones, we should also see the launch of the latest operating system and processor to power it. This time, that’s iOS 18 and the A18 chip.

Of course, AI is the current buzzword in tech, and iPhone rumours abound with it. But so far, Apple has kept quiet on how it’s using it in the iPhone 16. Some rumours hint at better interactions between apps such as Siri and Messenger, and some improvements to Apple Music playlists – but nothing is confirmed yet.
