iPhone Screen Sizes: Whispers of Change in 2024 and 2025

TLDR: Rumors suggest upcoming changes in iPhone screen sizes, with the iPhone 17 Plus potentially having a smaller display and the iPhone 16 Pro models featuring slimmer bezels and larger screens.

iPhone 17 Gossip Swirls Before iPhone 16 Debut

Even though Apple hasn’t pulled back the curtain on the iPhone 16, murmurs about the iPhone 17, anticipated to grace us in 2025, have already started to circulate.

Ross Young, a seasoned supply-chain oracle, imparted on X on Wednesday that the iPhone 17 Plus might sport a more compact display compared to the current 6.7-inch screen on the iPhone 15 Plus. MacRumors previously mused on the post.

Apple remained tight-lipped when asked for a comment.

Apple’s Penchant for Screen Size Tweaks

Apple fiddling with the screen sizes of its iPhones wouldn’t be a jaw-dropping revelation. The tech behemoth has consistently displayed a penchant for tinkering with display sizes, particularly as its lineup blossomed from a solitary iPhone annually to a myriad of models, commencing with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 2014.

The motivation behind Apple potentially embracing a more diminutive screen for the iPhone 17 Plus remains shrouded in mystery. Nevertheless, MacRumors posits that the alteration could further differentiate the Plus model from its more extravagant Pro Max sibling.

It’s anyone’s guess.

Despite Apple’s anticipated enlargement of the screen sizes for the forthcoming iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max this autumn, modifying the display size on the iPhone 17 Plus would likely enable each iPhone to assert its individuality even more.

It’s also plausible that Apple has gleaned customer insights suggesting that those drawn to Plus-sized iPhones yearn for a device more substantial than the entry-level iPhone but not as colossal as the Pro Max.

iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max: Svelte Bezels, Expansive Displays

As previously alluded to, Apple is expected to revamp the screen sizes of the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max this year. These models are rumoured to boast slimmer bezel borders and more generous displays. Consequently, it’s only natural to surmise that Apple would pivot its screen-tweaking focus to the entry-level iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus next year.
