One of the biggest concerns of Apple fans before the launch of each new iPhone series What is the size of the screen. This should be a simple matter – after all, in addition to two generations of “mini” phones, the numbered iPhones since 2020 have come in two sizes: the base model 6.1 inches and standard Pro, Plus and Pro Max are 6.7 inches.

Will the iPhone 15 series change? We’re still a few months away from a possible September unveiling of the new phone, and we certainly don’t expect any hints at next week’s WWDC 2023, but we can make educated guesses based on what the rumor mill is already saying.

So, here’s everything we know so far about the iPhone 15’s screen size, along with some other screen-enhancing details to look out for, as well as some details about the iPhone 15’s screen size. A possible hint of what could happen to the iPhone 16 series.

iPhone 15 screen: Rumored size

Speaking of the screen size of the iPhone 15 family, it seems Apple has always lived by the mantra: “If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.”

This means we are unlikely to see the first iPhone 12 since its release. A size change, increasing the display from 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches, respectively, is a shame, though not entirely unexpected.

Although We haven’t had any official word from Apple on this front — it never reveals anything in advance — but we do have more and more rumors pointing to the iPhone 15 range’s screens staying the same. The first hint of this came from January leaker ShrimpApplePro, who claimed that all models would have the same display size as the iPhone 14 series.

Well, I have the display design results for the iPhone 15 series. – All the iPhone 15 series will have the same display size as the iPhone 14 series – The pro 15 will have thinner bezels and curved edges, the display will still be flat, only the bezels will be curved Jan 21, 2023

Indeed, a recent iPhone 15 dummy mockup, built according to specifications allegedly sent to case makers, showcased four iPhone 15 models that appear to be identical to the current series in terms of size. That said, there are two 6.1-inch models (iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro) and two 6.7-inch models (iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max).

Yes, the latter could end up being called the iPhone 15 Ultra, and the Plus is a bit of a surprise given that it’s reportedly struggling to sell, but here we are. It’s also worth noting that the bezels on the Pro model appear to be thinner than ever, so there may be more screen to enjoy in the same footprint – But we’re talking barely noticeable margins here. iPhone 14 Pro Max review Dynamic Island music large iPhone 15 screen: other improvements

In other words, Just because the dimensions are the same, doesn’t mean the specs are the same. Specifically, there are two possible upgrades to be aware of. The first one is for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, which will get Dynamic Island — currently exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

For those who are not familiar with Dynamic Island, it The notch is replaced with a cutout at the top of the screen that is almost expandable to fill notifications, in-app information, and even the occasional game. It’s a neat way to make a previously dead space seem useful. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro Max/Ultra gets the brightest screen ever on an iPhone. That’s according to the aforementioned leaker ShrimpApplePro, who claims that Samsung’s next-generation panels — which can reportedly reach 2,500 nits of brightness — could appear on high-end iPhones this September.

may appear on iPhone 15 Pro Max… February 7, 2023

For reference, Apple says the iPhone 14 Pro is capable of 2,000 nits — so a reasonable upgrade.

Otherwise, we expect more of the same, down to the Pro refresh rate difference. It is expected that the regular version of the iPhone 15 will match the ProMotion120Hz refresh rate of the Pro model, and it is likely to remain at 60Hz.

Want something bigger? Wait until next year

So if you want something bigger, should you turn to the best Android phones for inspiration? Well, maybe – but if you can wait, the 2024 iPhone 16 Pro phones (but not the vanilla versions) will likely get you more thing. Many of the world’s most reliable Apple leakers now believe that next year’s Pro phones will be larger than any iPhone Apple has released to date, even if they disagree on the exact measurements.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo started by saying that the iPhone 16 Pro models will be “slightly larger” than the currently available models. Then, display analyst Ross Young dropped some numbers suggesting we can expect the iPhone 16 Pro to be 6.2 inches and the Pro Max to be 6.8 inches.

Apple is developing two Pro models for the iPhone 16 series, with increased display panel size (the actual display area is a bit smaller): D93 – 6.3” D94 – The 6.9” new periscope lens is set on both models, unlike the 15 lineup which is limited to the Pro Max. May 16, 2023

Unknownz21 went bigger, saying the phones will be 6.3 and 6.9 inches. Meanwhile, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman seems to agree with the larger estimate, saying that the iPhone 16 Pro models will grow “a few tenths of an inch diagonally.”

How much of this will actually be felt in the hand, and how much will be absorbed by the space made available by ever-shrinking bezels remains to be seen. But if you love big screens and can’t think of life beyond iOS, September 2024 might be worth the wait.
