Leaked iPhone 16 Case Models Tease Bigger Sizes for the Pro and Pro Max

The iPhone 16 Pro Max Looks Absolutely Huge.

We’ve long suspected that the iPhone 16 series will tear up the rulebook when it comes to iPhone screen sizes, and the latest set of leaked iPhone 16 case dummies shows how these rumored size changes could manifest in reality.

Shared by Apple tipster Sonny Dickson (via PhoneArena), a new iPhone 16 dummy unit picture displays all four rumored iPhone 16 models – that’s the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max – side-by-side, in descending order of premium-ness.

iPhone 16 Pro Max: A Giant Among Phones

As you can see below, the iPhone 16 Pro Max is listed as being the largest phone of the lot, measuring a whopping 6.9 inches (up from last year’s 6.7-inch size). This massive display promises an immersive experience for media consumption, gaming, and productivity.

iPhone 16 Pro: A Size Bump

The iPhone 16 Pro also gets a size bump, going from 6.1 inches to 6.3 inches. This increase provides more screen real estate for multitasking, app usage, and creative work.

iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus: Staying Put

The standard iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are listed as remaining at 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively. These sizes align with previous rumors we’ve heard about the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus screen dimensions.

Vertical Camera Arrangement

These new iPhone 16 dummy units also corroborate the rumor that the cameras on the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will be arranged vertically, departing from the diagonal arrangement seen on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. But why the change?

Spatial Video and Camera Design

One theory is that Apple aims to enhance spatial video capabilities. While the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max can capture spatial video (3D-style content viewable on the Apple Vision Pro headset), the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus lack this feature. By adding vertically-arranged camera lenses to the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, Apple could open up the spatial video format to a larger audience, potentially boosting sales of the Apple Vision Pro headset.

Unchanged Camera Arrangement for Pro Models

The cameras on the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are expected to retain their current arrangement. However, the increased screen size of both models will reportedly allow for an ultrawide camera upgrade on the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max, along with an optical zoom range boost for the iPhone 16 Pro Max.

Take It with a Pinch of Salt

Keep in mind that dummy units, despite being used by case makers to ensure their cases fit upcoming phones, are not always 100% accurate. However, these latest dummies align with other leaked iPhone 16 models we’ve already seen, so we’re quietly confident that we know what to expect from the iPhone 16 and its siblings.

Stay tuned for more updates as we eagerly await the official unveiling of the iPhone 16 series!
