While we are anticipating the launch of this year’s iPhone 15 series, it looks like we can still look forward to the next year’s generation of iPhones. It has been almost three years since Apple increased the screen sizes for its iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Now according to researcher Unknownz21, it looks like the Pro models will have larger displays for the first time since the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 16 Pro (D93 internally) will have a 6.3-inch display, and the iPhone 16 Pro Max (D94 internally) will have a 6.9-inch display. Keep in mind that the diagonals are measured in a standard rectangle; the actual viewable area is less because of the rounded corners.
Apple is working on two Pro models
for the iPhone 16 series, with increased display panel sizes (the actual display area is a bit smaller):
D93 – 6.3”
D94 – 6.9”
Both models are set to feature the new periscope lens, unlike the 15 lineup where it’s restricted to the Pro Max.

Currently, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max feature 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch displays, respectively. Therefore, the increase in screen size for both models would be quite noticeable. What Apple could do is slim down the bezels so that both of those upcoming models will have a similar footprint to both the current iPhone 14 Pro and this year’s upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models.
The standard iPhone 16 is expected to retain the same screen size of 6.1 inches that is currently used on the iPhone 14.
Additionally, Unknownz21 confirms that the periscope camera technology will be standard across both iPhone 16 Pro models. That technology will initially be exclusive to the upcoming larger iPhone 15 Pro Max.
