iPhone 16 Pro, iPhone 16 Pro Max Could Feature Up To 40 Percent Smaller Bezels Compared To iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, Claims Latest Rumor

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max had incredibly thin bezels, but Apple is rumored to go the extra mile with the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, with a reduction of up to 40% in this area, giving both flagships an impressive screen-to-body ratio. We reported that both flagships will come with larger displays, and with the bezels being further reduced, this won’t significantly increase the bulk of both handsets, making them easier to carry and use comfortably.

Apple may have succeeded in reducing the bezels of the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max by adopting “Border Reduction Structure” technology

With the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, we should see Apple introduce a 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch display respectively, which would be the first time in years that the company has pursued an increase in the panel size. As for their bezels, a Weibo account with the handle Setsuna Digital claims that we could see Apple targeting a measurement as low as 1.15mm, but for the larger iPhone 16 Pro Max. With the smaller iPhone 16 Pro, the edges are rumored to measure 1.20mm, which is still incredibly thin.

The rumor does not provide information on how Apple, its design and engineering teams will achieve this feat, but an earlier report indicated that the tech giant will adopt “Border Reduction Structure” technology to make this possible. Previously, separately released reports mentioned that Apple was exploring a technique called “low injection pressure overmolding” (LIPO), but it appears that Apple may have abandoned the latter for something that might yield better results.

It’s unclear whether using this technology will force Apple to increase the starting price of the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max due to the amount of effort and resources required, but we’ve heard on numerous occasions that a price increase was imminent for earlier models, but nothing materialized. We also noticed that the tipster mentions a bezel measurement of 1.71mm for the iPhone 15 Pro, while we reported that Apple would drop that number to 1.55mm. Regardless, we recommend treating this rumor with a pinch of salt and, as usual, we will be back with more updates.
