This is how the technological world works: there is no time to enjoy the latest news that we immediately talk about what will arrive in the future. Apple has thrown its new range of smartphones into the fray a few weeks ago but here’s what The first rumors about the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max have already leaked out.
iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max: the first rumors online about Apple’s next top of the range
According to the well-known (and rather reliable) analyst Jeff PuiPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon X75 modem. The chip, announced in February this year, brings with it improvements to offer superior 5G performance in terms of both download and upload.
The modem would then take up 25% less space on the printed circuit board and use 20% less than the Snapdragon X70. The latter is now used on the entire iPhone 15 range and, almost certainly, will also find space under the body of next year’s Standard and Plus models.
The Snapdragron X75 also supports it standard called “5G Advanced”which is described as an upgrade of 5G connectivity, as a step towards the future, i.e. the 6G. In this regard, we are talking not only about the use ofartificial intelligence and machine learning to improve the performance of 5G, but also the use of this technology in use cases different from those we are used to today.
But what happened to the made-in-Cupertino chip? Apple is said to have been working on its own 5G modem since 2018, but rumors have it that there would have been such difficulties that push the Californian company itself to extend the agreement with Qualcomm until 2026.
Finally, as regards Wi-Fi, the transition to the standard is hypothesized for 2024 Wi-Fi 7. Therefore an upgrade compared to Wi-Fi 6e currently supported by iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max.
