Although the iPhone 15 series is still relatively new, rumors about the iPhone 16 are already circulating. According to rumors, the iPhone 16 Pro may replace the Dynamic Island with a hole-punch cutout.

With the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the Dynamic Island houses the front-facing camera and Face ID sensors. There is no doubt that it has been a topic of conversation even though it has received mixed reviews.

Apple is currently testing a prototype of the iPhone 16 Pro with a hole-punch cutout instead of Dynamic Island, according to tipster Majin Bu. There would be no need for the pill-shaped cutout that has been a hallmark of recent iPhones, which would be a significant change.

According to Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the Dynamic Island is here to stay for at least another year. All four iPhone 16 models will feature Dynamic Island, and the biggest display change will be larger screens for the Pro models.

The non-Pro models will match the screen sizes of the Pro models in 2025, Young predicts. Therefore, the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Pro will both have 6.3-inch displays, while the iPhone 17 Plus and iPhone 17 Pro Max will have 6.9-inch displays.

For the first time, the ProMotion 120Hz display will be used on less expensive phones in 2025, along with Dynamic Island on the non-Pro models.

According to Young, Apple will have moved to an under-display Face ID module with a hole-punch cutout on the iPhone 17 Pro series. Design-wise, this would be a major improvement, since no visible cutouts would have to be present.
