The screens of the iPhone 16 might use a unique technology called micro-lens. It helps the screen look brighter without using up too much battery. Micro-lens arrays, tiny lenses in the net, reduce how much light bounces inside the screen. Additionally, it makes the screen seem brighter but doesn’t use extra power.

Also, the OLED screens in the iPhone 16 will use better materials, which means they’ll use less power overall.

2. Buttons

Apple wants to put two new buttons on the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus. One of them will take the place of the Mute Switch, and the other one will be completely new.

3. Action Button

The Action Button on all iPhone 16 models will resemble the iPhone 15 Pro. Instead of the usual mute switch, the Action button can do many things. It can turn on the flashlight, open the camera, start a shortcut, switch focus modes, use translate, turn silent mode on or off, and more.

4. Capture Button

There’s a new button on the iPhone called the Capture Button. It’s on the same side as the Power button, where the 5G mmWave antenna used to be in the U.S. Because of this new button, the mmWave antenna has been moved to the phone’s left side, under the volume buttons. 

The Capture Button will be a physical button that you can press. It will respond to how hard you push it and if you touch it. You can zoom in and out by swiping left and right on the button, focusing lightly, and starting recording by pressing harder.

5. A-Series Chips

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus are expected to have a new chip called the A17, but it won’t be the same as the A17 Pro chip found in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Instead, Apple will use a different manufacturing process called N3E for the standard iPhone 16 chip, while the Pro models will use a different technique called N3B. N3B is a more advanced process made in partnership with Apple, while N3E is a cheaper option with lower efficiency. 

Commonly, Apple uses the same chips for both standard and Pro iPhone models, but this time, they’re changing. Some rumors say the standard iPhone 16 chip might be called the A17, but analyst Jeff Pu thinks it might be called the A18 instead. Apple also launching iOS 18 in near to SEP 2024. He believes all iPhone 16 models will use scraps from the A18 series, with the Pro models possibly having a little extra feature compared to the standard ones.

6. Thermal Improvements

The iPhone 16 models might have a new way to prevent them from getting too hot. Apple is working on using a unique material called graphene to help with this. The iPhone 16 Pro models might also have a metal casing around the battery to help cool them down even more. Graphene can also move heat better than the copper in iPhone heat sinks.
