iPhone 16 Pro Said to Feature Wi-Fi 7 Support, 48MP Ultra Wide Camera

According to Jeff Pu, a technology analyst at Hong Kong investment firm Haitong International Securities, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models will come equipped with Wi-Fi 7 support and an upgraded 48-megapixel Ultra Wide camera lens. In a research note about the tech sector that was published today, Pu made this information public.

Wi-Fi 7

In order to achieve faster Wi-Fi speeds, lower latency, and more dependable connectivity, Wi-Fi 7 devices will be able to send and receive data over the 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands simultaneously. Wi-Fi 7 is anticipated to provide peak data transfer speeds of over 40 Gbps, a 4x improvement over Wi-Fi 6E, thanks to technologies like 4K QAM.

Wi-Fi 6E support for Apple’s products is still being added. As opposed to regular Wi-Fi 6, which is only compatible with the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, Wi-Fi 6E supports the 6GHz band for increased bandwidth. In addition to the iPad Pro, 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, Mac Studio, Mac Pro, and Mac mini, Apple has added Wi-Fi 6E to these devices so far. The upcoming iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are also anticipated to support the standard.

The progression would be as follows:

  • iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max: Wi-Fi 6
  • iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max: Wi-Fi 6E
  • iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max: Wi-Fi 7

48MP Ultra Wide Camera

The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max’s 48-megapixel Ultra Wide lens upgrade should enable the lens to capture more light, resulting in better photos when shooting in 0.5× mode, particularly in low-light situations.

iPhone 14 Pro models already have a 48-megapixel Main lens that uses “pixel binning” to merge data from four pixels on the camera’s image sensor into one “super pixel” for improved low-light capture. This technology is anticipated to be extended to the Ultra Wide lens, which is currently a 12-megapixel lens, with the iPhone 16 Pro models.

Consequently, 48-megapixel ProRAW photos in Ultra Wide mode should be possible with iPhone 16 Pro models. These pictures are able to be printed at large sizes and have more detail preserved in the image file for more editing versatility.


The iPhone 16 lineup is not anticipated to go on sale until September 2024, which is more than a year away. Early rumors should always be taken with a grain of salt because Apple’s plans are subject to change.

Also worth noting is the possibility that Wi-Fi 7 won’t be completed in time for the iPhone 16 Pro because it might not be released until late 2024.
