A while ago, three-dimensional sketch images said to belong to the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max emerged; The images in question strengthened the claim that Apple would increase the screen sizes from 6.1 and 6.7 inches to 6.27 and 6.85 inches, respectively. Although the growth in the screen is expected to expand the phones, it seems that this expansion will not be as much as expected.

According to the news of South Korea-based Sisa Journal-E; Apple has developed a technology it calls “Frame Reduction Structure”. Thanks to this technology, it becomes possible to thin the screen frame of iPhones.

The 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max models are said to have dimensions of 149.6 x 71.45 x 8.2 mm and 163 x 77.58 x 8.2 mm, respectively. This means that the new phones will be approximately 3 mm longer and 1 mm wider than the current iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

It is said that Apple will benefit from “Frame Reduction Structure” technology in its four new iPhone models. However, according to available information, the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus will have the same screen sizes as their predecessors. Apple is not expected to change the 60 Hz refresh rate.

Apple will buy screens from three manufacturers in the iPhone 16 series

It is also among the interesting information in the news that heat dissipation is a problem in frame reduction. It was stated that the Cupertino-based company found a simple solution for this to be adopted by display suppliers Samsung Display, LG Display and BOE.

According to one of the sources of the news, Apple's display suppliers do not see Bezel Reduction Fabric as a difficult technology to implement. However, it is also reported that when mass production begins, Apple may change the shares between manufacturers in case of a possible problem.
