The iPhone 16 Pro might have the world's thinnest bezels

A new leak about the iPhone 16 Pro suggests its bezels will be the thinnest ever seen on a smartphone. Apple has consistently aimed for thinner bezels, so this development isn’t surprising, especially for the iPhone 16 lineup.

According to leaker “Ice Universe,” the iPhone 16 Pro will set a new record. The leak doesn’t mention the iPhone 16 Pro Max, but it’s likely to have the same reduction in bezel size.

Previous rumors about the iPhone 16 displays have mentioned production problems due to the thinner bezels, particularly yield issues and heat dissipation concerns.

Apple is reportedly using Border Reduction Structure (BRS) technology to achieve these ultra-thin bezels, but there have been issues applying it to the bottom edge.

Leaker “Ice Universe” has a solid track record with iPhone display details, having accurately revealed in 2020 that the iPhone 13 would feature a smaller notch.
