Rumors about the iPhone 15 family have been floating around for a long time. The new lineup is due to launch this fall. But we have just got the first look at the iPhone 16 Ultra, which is still over a year away. Apple is expected to keep the Pro Max branding for its top-end model this year. But some reports suggest that the iPhone 16 Ultra could replace the iPhone 15 Pro Max in 2024.

According to reports, the iPhone 16 Pro Max is expected to adopt the Ultra branding to align with the Apple Watch Ultra. As a result, some speculate that Apple might discontinue the Pro Max branding after this year. However, the most interesting leak at the moment is the CAD renders of the iPhone 16 Ultra shared exclusively by 9to5Mac.

The leaked renders show the iPhone 15 Pro Max and iPhone 16 Ultra side-by-side. As you can see, the 16 Ultra has a slightly larger display, measuring 6.9 inches. In comparison, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen. Despite a marginal difference of 0.2 inches in screen size, the iPhone 16 Ultra appears taller and wider than its counterpart.
It is said to be around 165 mm tall and 76.7 mm wide. Wheares, the 15 Pro Max will be around 159.8 mm tall and 76.7 mm wide. This marks a significant increase in size, which raises concerns about its portability and ease of use.
Anyways, the smaller iPhone 16 Pro is also expected to be slightly larger than the iPhone 15 Pro. It is said to have a 6.3-inch display, up from the rumored 6.1-inch display on the 15 Pro. Analyst Ming-chi Kuo suggests that this increase in size will allow Apple to include a periscope zoom lens—a feature that is not expected to be on the iPhone 15 Pro.
Although the sources providing this information are generally reliable, it is still too early to know for sure what Apple’s plans are for next year. We suggest you take these leaks with a grain of salt.
