The iPhone 16 will come after the iPhone 15, which hasn’t been released yet. This lineup could include the iPhone Ultra with Face ID under the screen and Apple’s own modem chip. It is expected to come out in late 2024.
When Will Apple Release the iPhone 16?
Apple’s release schedule for smartphones is pretty stable, so you can pretty much count on a new one every year. Since Apple still plans to release the iPhone 15 this year, the iPhone 16 won’t come out until 2019.
Like in the past, there will probably be more than one model: the iPhone 16, the iPhone 16 Pro, the iPhone 16 Pro Max, and maybe even an iPhone 16 Ultra.
Cost Rumors for The iPhone 16
Since Apple hasn’t announced the price of the iPhone 15 yet, it’s a little early to make good guesses about how much this phone will cost. Early on, we can say that the iPhone Ultra, which could be the top-of-the-line iPhone 16 model, could cost more than $1100. This means that the rest of the lineup would cost less than that.
For comparison, the base model of the iPhone 15 is expected to start at $799.

Specifications and Features of The iPhone 16
First of all, let’s make it clear that the iPhone 15 has still not been officially announced. This means that the information below is based on what people think will happen, which could change at any time.
The iPhones of 2024 might have Face ID built into the screen, which could change how the whole front of the phone looks. If The Elec’s rumor turns out to be true, the iPhone Pro models might only have a hole for the front-facing camera: From next year’s iPhone 16 series Pro lineup, Apple is likely to add the “Under Panel Face ID” feature, which hides Face ID under the screen.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known Apple leaker, and reporter, said this same thing as early as April 2022.
Ross Young, a trusted leader, thinks that sensor problems will delay under-panel Face ID until at least 2025, so it won’t be available until the iPhone 17 Pro. If he’s right, there’s no doubt that the 2024 phones will look like the iPhone 15 series (i.e., all models will have the Dynamic Island cutout).
This phone might have a periscope camera lens, which would make it easier to zoom in. Kuo said at the beginning of 2023 that his most recent survey “indicates that only one/high-end new iPhone 16 model will have the periscope camera in 2H24.” It is likely that this rumor is about the iPhone Ultra.
There are four storage options for the current iPhone. They range from 128 GB to TB. We don’t think there will be a 2 TB model yet, so we think the iPhone 16 will be the same. We could see Apple getting rid of the least expensive option and starting with 256 GB instead, but we don’t think that will happen.
Apple has used Qualcomm modem chips in its phones for a long time, but the company might start making its own modem chip in 2024. It’s not clear what benefit, if any, this would have for the buyer.
The iPhone 16 will come with the iOS 18 operating system. After iOS 17 is confirmed, we’ll know more about what to expect from that OS.
Check out our articles on the iPhone 15 and iPhone Ultra to see what else we think the iPhone 16 will bring. For example, we think that USB-C will be in the phones of 2023, and so it will also be in the phones of 2024.
