Rumor: iPhone 16 Pro to Shine with a 20% Brighter Display

According to the latest hearsay originating from China and shared on Weibo by user Instant Digital, it seems that the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro slated for release later this year might boast a display that’s 20% brighter than its predecessor’s.

However, it’s important to clarify that this increase in brightness pertains to the typical brightness rather than the peak HDR brightness. The current iPhone 15 Pro reaches a typical brightness of 1,000 nits, while the iPhone 16 Pro is rumored to elevate this to 1,200 nits.

While the peak High Brightness Mode is expected to stay consistent, there might be some discrepancy in the numbers. Manufacturers often emphasize their preferred figures, and with various brightness modes to consider—manual brightness, typical brightness, High Brightness Mode brightness, and HDR peak brightness—the details can become convoluted. The speculation suggests that the iPhone 16 Pro will maintain the same High Brightness Mode peak of 1,600 nits as its forerunner, but there’s a discrepancy as the predecessor can reportedly reach up to 2,000 nits.

It’s worth noting that the reliability of this rumor source regarding Apple-related leaks is somewhat mixed. However, the account has accurately predicted several Apple launches in the past.

Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be unexpected for Apple to enhance the brightness of the iPhone 16 Pro’s display. Increased brightness has been a prevailing trend in the Android realm recently, and considering that the 1,000-nit typical brightness has remained unchanged since the debut of the iPhone 13 Pro in 2021, an upgrade seems overdue.
