iPhone 16 launch on track with production starting soon

iPhone 16 displays will probably be produced from June.

Last updated

Apple's suppliers are preparing to start production of displays for the iPhone 16 in June, a report claims, indicating things are still on schedule for a September launch.

The supply chain is very familiar with Apple's scheduling, with parts and components produced like clockwork ahead of Apple's usual fall iPhone update. Now, it seems a key component is close to entering production.

According to Display Supply Chain Consultants' Ross Young, display panels intended for the iPhone 16 generation will start being made by partners in June.

The tweet from the analyst adds that the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro will have the largest volume of production in June itself.

While this does feel like big news for Apple's next generation of flagship mobile devices, the June production of display panels isn't a massive shock. Indeed, Young wrote the same observation exactly one year ago, saying iPhone 15 displays were on schedule for a June production.

Young and DSCC have a very good track record when it comes to display-specific rumors. That, coupled with the regularity of Apple's scheduling, makes the claim almost certain to be true.

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro lines are anticipated to ship in a variety of screen sizes. This includes a 6.1-inch screen for the iPhone 16, 6.7-inch for the Plus, a 6.3-inch for the Pro, and a new 6.9-inch screen for the iPhone 16 Pro Max.

Rumors for the iPhone 16 lineup include a new "Capture" button on the casing, another 48-megapixel sensor on the Pro line, and a vertical camera arrangement on the standard models.
