Even if the iPhone 16 Pro Max which is viral on TikTok is a leak, it should be accompanied by supporting evidence. But in fact, there is no strong evidence to support the truth that the iPhone 16 Pro Max is viral on TikTok.
3. There is no news regarding the naming of the iPhone 16 “Pro Max”
From year to year, Apple usually names its newest cellphones with sequential numbers, such as iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14. It is likely that this naming will also be used in the iPhone series that will be present this year and next year.
For the iPhone that will be present in 2024, a well-known supply chain consultant, Ross Young calls it “iPhone 16”. However, he has not disclosed which models will accompany the iPhone 16 series.
Quoted from Mac Rumors, Ross Young only divides the iPhone 16 into two model names, namely the standard or regular model and the “Pro” model. It is not yet known whether the “Pro” model on the iPhone 16 has a name “Pro Max”.
The model name on the iPhone series can sometimes be different from what is rumored. For example, on the iPhone 14 series for the regular model with a larger screen size, it is not called “iPhone 14 Max” as was rumored, but “iPhone 14 Plus”.
4. There have been no credible leaks regarding the iPhone 16 camera configuration
Currently, there are quite a lot of rumors or leaks about the iPhone 16 available on the internet. However, from several existing rumors, there are no predictions that describe the camera configuration on the iPhone 16.
Current rumors still discuss the RAM model and display technology on the iPhone 16. For the RAM model, one leaker gadgets The famous handle @ShimpApplePro says that the iPhone 16 will use LPDDR5X RAM.
Meanwhile, for screen technology, an analyst who often leaks Apple products, Ming Chi Kuo said that if the iPhone 16 will use it will adopt a front camera and Face ID which is under the screen (under display).
From the facts above, it can be concluded that the iPhone 16 Pro Max, like the viral one on TikTok, is basically just a fantasy. This is because, firstly, the latest Apple HP line available now is the iPhone 14 series.
Second, if the iPhone 16 Pro Max which is viral on TikTok is a leak then it cannot be categorized as a credible leak because it is not supported by strong evidence, both in terms of naming and specifications.
