iPhone 16 Pro to remain compact & use graphene for heat dissipation

New iPhone 16 Pro information has just surfaced, and there’s plenty to talk about. Based on the new information that Majin Bu shared, the iPhone 16 Pro will remain compact, while a separate rumor mentioned graphene.

The iPhone 16 Pro will remain as compact as its current-gen sibling, it seems

Let’s take it one step at a time. Majin Bu, a well-known tipster, says that the iPhone 16 Pro series could remain approximately the same size despite rumors. He seems to be especially confident about the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Majin Bu says that he’s currently seeing “no change” in terms of size on the iPhone 16 Pro Max. He does not have the measurements yet, but the increase in size seems to be negligible (0.x inches).

The device may have a larger display but approximately the same footprint

He says that many people overlook the facts. If the iPhone 16 Pro ends up having a narrower frame, and a 6.3-inch display, it will basically be the size of the iPhone 15 Pro.

The tipster also mentioned the periscope camera that is expected to be included in the iPhone 16 Pro. As a reminder, the tetraprism lens was included in the iPhone 15 Pro Max only, not the smaller ‘Pro’ model. Well, that will change this year. He claims that the iPhone 16 Pro could end up fitting such a camera without getting a size increase.

He did mention that Apple’s plan for ‘Pro’ models does include a new button layout, though. The capacitive touch buttons will be flat, it is said, or maybe even moved a bit inside the frame itself.

Apple plans to use a layer of graphene inside the iPhone 16 Pro, to keep heat at bay

Now, the part about graphene comes from a different source, Ming-Chi Kuo. That’s another well-known Apple tipster. He claims that Apple may use a layer of graphene attached to the phone’s processor to control the heat. This would move heat away from the chip.

He also noted that Apple may end up using a vapor chamber inside upcoming models, but that won’t be the case with the iPhone 16 Pro series, though, it seems. Samsung opted to considerably increase the vapor chamber inside the Galaxy S24 Ultra, it’s now 92% larger.

These are two completely different approaches. Apple has to do something, though, as titanium is less heat-conductive than steel, so the company is looking for ways to drive heat away.
