Apple's iPhone 16, which is expected to be launched later this year, is expected to include more RAM, faster Wi-Fi and other improvements, according to several media outlets. According to Apple analyst Jeff Pu, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will be powered by the A18 processor, reports 9to5Mac. This will be the first time the base models of iPhones will use processors built on a more powerful and efficient 3 nanometer process. According to the analyst, the iPhone 16 will contain 8GB of RAM - an increase from the current 6GB of RAM in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
The iPhone 16 Pro versions will feature the new A18 Pro chip, the report noted. The analyst stated that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will use a Qualcomm X75 modem. Meanwhile, the Qualcomm X70 will be used in the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus. He also noted that the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will get support for Wi-Fi 6E, which is currently exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro models only. iPhone 15 and 15 Plus only support Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6E promises faster speeds, lower latency and better overall network performance. iPhone 16 Pro devices "may" support Wi-Fi 7, the report mentioned.
As for the camera, the analyst said the iPhone 16 Pro will get an upgraded Ultra Wide camera, with an increase in resolution from 12MP to 48MP.
