The Largest iPhone Models Yet: Comparing the Potential Designs of the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max with the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max

Since the debut of the first iPhone in 2007, we’ve been on a journey, covering each successive iteration. As we bid farewell to 2023, the iPhone 15 series is already old news, making way for the next iPhone 16 series, expected to grace us in the fall of the coming year. While it might seem a tad early to gear up, time has a way of slipping away, prompting us to dive into our expectations for the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max. In this article, our focus shifts to the size of the upcoming smartphones.

What differences do we expect to see?

Whispers in the rumor mill suggest that the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max might undergo a subtle transformation, becoming slightly taller and wider and carrying a tad more weight compared to their predecessors. On the flip side, it appears that the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will maintain a size profile similar to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.

This potential growth can be attributed to rumors of an expanded display size for the iPhone 16 series. Speculations suggest that the iPhone 16 Pro Max might boast a larger 6.86-inch display, while the iPhone 16 Pro could see its screen expand to 6.27 inches. The speculated dimensions for the iPhone 16 series could shape up as follows:

iPhone 16
Height: 147.6mm
Width: 71.6mm
Depth: 7.8mm
Weight: 173gr

iPhone 16 Plus
Height: 160.9mm
Width: 77.8mm
Depth: 7.8mm
Weight: 203gr

iPhone 16 Pro 
Height: 149.6mm
Width: 71.45mm
Depth: 8.25mm
Weight: 194gr

iPhone 16 Pro Max
Height: 163mm
Width: 77.58mm
Depth: 8.25mm
Weight: 225gr

iPhone 16 vs iPhone 15 size comparison

As mentioned earlier, we anticipate that the standard iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will maintain their current size. However, differences are expected with the Pro models. The iPhone 15 Pro dimensions stand at 146.6 x 70.6 x 8.25mm, weighing in at 187 grams. In contrast, the iPhone 16 Pro is projected to be slightly larger and heavier, tipping the scales at 194 grams.

The scenario echoes with the iPhone 16 Pro Max, rumored to surpass its already sizable predecessor and naturally carrying a bit more weight (a mere 4 grams, which, let’s be honest, might be hard to feel or notice). Let’s break down the dimensions and weights of the iPhone 15 series compared to the iPhone 16 series in the table below:

iPhone 16 iPhone 15 iPhone 16 Plus iPhone 15 Plus
Height: 147.6mm 147.6mm 160.9mm 160.8mm
Width: 71.6mm 71.6mm 77.8mm 77.8mm
Depth: 7.8mm 7.8mm 7.8mm 7.8mm
Weight: 173gr 171gr 203gr 201gr

iPhone 16 Pro iPhone 15 Pro iPhone 16 Pro Max iPhone 15 Pro Max
Height: 149.6mm 146.6mm 163mm 159.9mm
Width: 71.45mm 70.6mm 77.58mm 76.7mm
Depth: 8.25mm 8.25mm 8.25mm 8.25mm
Weight: 194gr 187gr 225gr 221gr

The size difference might not be immediately apparent to everyone, as we’re dealing with just a few millimeters and grams. Yet, for those with smaller hands, carrying out one-handed tasks on iPhone 16 Pro or Pro Max could become slightly more challenging. The nuances in size and weight can have diverse effects, particularly in everyday, practical usability.
