iPhone 16 Buzz: New Finish and Rumored Features Unveiled for Apple’s 2024 Flagship Phones

Titanium Upgrades, Color Variations, and WWDC 2024: What to Expect

The iPhone 16 rumor mill is buzzing as anticipation builds for Apple’s upcoming flagship phones in 2024. The latest leak hints at a potential new finish for the Pro and Pro Max models.

As per yeux1122, a trusted source cited by MacRumors, the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max might sport a sleek titanium finish, replacing the brushed titanium look of their predecessors, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

Transitioning to a titanium frame in the iPhone 15 Pro series enhanced the phone’s tactile experience and reduced its weight, as noted in our reviews. This move marked a significant departure from Apple’s traditional use of stainless steel frames.

We highlighted in our reviews how the titanium edges elevated the tactile sensation of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. Following Apple’s lead, Samsung also embraced titanium for its top-tier 2024 flagship, as discussed in our Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra review.

Titanium enhances heat dissipation, making iPhones run cooler. Given these benefits, Apple and other manufacturers are increasingly opting for titanium.

This source suggests that while titanium offers a glossier look reminiscent of stainless steel, it retains its superior strength and scratch resistance.

In addition to a revamped finish, rumors hint at new color options for this year’s iPhones: a potential Rose shade for the Pro and Pro Max, while the 2023 blue variant may be phased out.

Before the arrival of the new iPhones in September, mark your calendars for WWDC 2024 starting June 10, where we expect updates on iOS 18 and other Apple software.
