According to a report, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models may be equipped with a graphene sheet to improve heat dissipation and mitigate the overheating issues that affected their predecessors.

The iPhone 15 Pro models were equipped with a titanium frame, which has lower thermal conductivity than stainless steel, leading to heating issues that were partially resolved with an iOS 17 update  The use of graphene in the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max could help improve heat dissipation and prevent overheating issues.

What are the recommended hardware cooling improvements for the iPhone 16?

Although Apple firmly stated that there were no hardware problems, and they were later proven right, Apple prototype collector Kosutami claims they are making two hardware upgrades for the iPhone 16. These changes are intended to make the phone cool down better without needing extra power.

Apple is currently in the process of developing a graphene thermal system for the iPhone 16 Series to address the previous heating issues. Additionally, they are considering switching the Pro series’ battery to a metal shell for the same purpose.

Apple was compelled to introduce an iOS update to resolve overheating issues with the iPhone 15. However, a recent leak indicates that Apple is considering a hardware modification in the coming year to enhance passive cooling

Several weeks before the assertion made on the microblogging platform, Apple released the iOS 17.0.3 update, addressing overheating problems that were affecting the iPhone 15 Pro models. During this period, Apple acknowledged that their latest phones were experiencing heating problems. They attributed these issues to app optimization challenges and software glitches.

Concerning battery capacity, there are speculations surrounding the iPhone 16 Pro models, suggesting they might adopt stacked batteries. This change could potentially enhance both the capacity and lifespan of the batteries. Moreover, users might enjoy faster charging options, with potential upgrades to 40W for wired charging and 20W for MagSafe charging, compared to the current 20W and 15W options. To address overheating concerns, Apple is considering the implementation of an advanced graphene thermal system, replacing the less efficient copper-based one

Will the iPhone 16 use the A18 chip for every model?

In contrast to the previous two years, the next iPhone 16 will come in four variants and will all be from the A18 series. All four models will have a new Apple chipset. All four models will have an A18 chip, according to a MacRumors source that quotes executive analyst Jeff Pu of Haitong International Securities. Standard versions will use the ordinary A18 chip, while Pro models will use the A18 Bionic Pro.

The A16 Bionic chip, which made its debut on the 2022 iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, powers the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, whereas the A17 Pro processor powers the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. Pu claims that TSMC’s state-of-the-art 3-nanometer process will be used in the production of the A18 chip.
