All I want is an iPhone mini with 2 more extra hours of battery life, I don't want 3 cameras, I just want a good small phone.

I will have to keep my mini for 2 more years, yes I will have to get the battery changed in between, but then what after that?

Display analyst Ross Young recently reported that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will see an increase in their display sizes compared to previous generations, growing to almost 6.3 inches and 6.9 inches respectively.

An alleged CAD model of the larger iPhone 16 Pro Max (which could possibly be branded as iPhone 16 Ultra) was recently shared with 9to5Mac by Sonny Dickson and used to create renderings showing how much bigger Apple's largest iPhone model could be for the 2024 lineup.

According to the CAD model, the iPhone 16 Pro Max will apparently grow more significantly in the vertical dimension than in the horizontal dimension, compared to the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The overall iPhone 16 Pro Max device height would increase by approximately 5 mm to ~165.0 mm while the width would only increase by about 0.5 mm to ~77.2 mm.

It's still very early in the rumor cycle for the iPhone 16 lineup as we're well over a year away from launch, so the accuracy of the leaked CAD model remains uncertain. We'll undoubtedly hear much more in the coming months, so we'll see if future information lines up with this early claim.

I’m a pretty big dude, I can one handed palm a basketball- and the iPhone 14 Pro Max is still hard to use single handed.

I love large displays, but wow a 7 inch display is huge for a smartphone without it folding or flipping TBH.

Seems that there isn’t much innovation left in the smartphone game. Could be wrong, prove me wrong Apple.

I'm right there with you. Will have to keep my mini until... forever.

Every year I think, "Surely they won't get even bigger this year" and every year I'm wrong.

Is it ever going to stop? At what point do they stop making these things bigger and heavier?
When suckers stop buying them.

When the bulk of the buyers stop buying.
Here's the problem with that though. Apple only offers certain features on the higher end iPhones. Those higher end iPhones also tend to have the larger sized screens. When Apple sees consumers opting for those Pro/Pro Max iPhones, they might mistakenly believe that consumers are buying them because of the size and not because of the features. So Apple keeps offering larger and larger sized iPhones thinking that's what the consumer wants.
