iPhone 16 bigger, for better cameras?

We are starting to know why the iPhone 16 Pro of 2024 will be larger than the previous models.

The iPhone 15 range is not even announced yet that several rumors already agree that next year's iPhone 16 Pro will see their dimensions increase, which in passing will increase the size of the screen a little . Corridor rumors recently corroborated by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who is generally knowledgeable about behind the scenes at Apple.

Up photo/video quality with larger sensors on iPhone 16 series?

He assumes that this change in size will mean larger components, such as a better capacity battery or improved photo sensors. And precisely, a “leaker” on the Chinese network Weibo (via Macrumors) claims that this gain in volume will allow the insertion of larger cameras.

Thus, the periscope telephoto lens tipped this year on iPhone 15 Pro Max only could also be integrated into the iPhone 16 Pro, while the iPhone 16 Pro Max would also benefit from a larger main sensor, going from 1 /1.28'' currently at 1/1.14'' inch.
