Apple is gearing up for a significant size upgrade in its premium iPhone lineup this year, departing from the stagnant sizing of previous iterations. 

The forthcoming Pro Max model is set to increase to a substantial 6.9 inches, up from its current 6.7 inches, while the iPhone 16 Pro will expand to 6.3 inches from 6.1 inches. These adjustments signal a notable shift in Apple's approach to device dimensions, with the latest measurements only recently coming to light.

Despite the overall increase in size for the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max, there's a surprising reduction in one key dimension: the screen border.

As the unveiling of Apple's latest iPhone lineup draws nearer, the leaks and rumors surrounding the iPhone 16 series continue to fuel anticipation among tech enthusiasts worldwide. 

The meticulous attention to detail provided by prominent leakers such as UniverseIce and Instant Digital paints a vivid picture of what consumers can expect from the upcoming flagship devices.

With unveiling the iPhone 16 series just around the corner, the focus on device dimensions underscores Apple's commitment to innovation and user experience.

In the previous year, Apple employed low-injection pressure over-molding (LIPO) to reduce the screen border on iPhone 15 Pro models. This year, reports suggest Apple will utilize Border Reduction Structure (BRS) technology to achieve even slimmer bezels by optimizing circuitry placement beneath the display.

The tables clearly compare screen border dimensions between the iPhone 16 Pro, Pro Max, and the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra.

The screen border for the iPhone 16 Pro has significantly reduced from 1.71 mm to 1.2 mm, marking a substantial 30% decrease. Similarly, the Pro Max now features a slimmer border, reduced from 1.55 mm to 1.15 mm, representing a 26% decrease. 

In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra maintains a screen border of 1.5 mm. This information highlights the advancements in design and engineering within the smartphone industry.

If you're used to the iPhone 15 Pro, you might not notice much change in the screen border. However, it's worth mentioning that the screens on the iPhone 16 Pro models are more significant.

Because of the narrower border, the phone's body doesn't need to be as significant. So, when you hold the phone and look at the screen, you might notice a bigger difference.

If you think slimmer bezels aren't a big deal, think again. The new iPhones boast upgraded camera tech, a fresh Capture button, modem chip enhancements, new color choices, and more.
