New information completes the technical data sheet of the future iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro, reporting more RAM for the base iPhone and possible Wi-Fi 7 support for the Pro models.

There are already rumors and leaks about the iPhone 16, which Apple is expected to announce next September.
While several rumors already speak of a screen still at 60 Hz for the basic iPhone, of a more powerful chip and a better zoom on the classic Pro model, little by little more information is coming to complete their file techniques.
iPhone 16: More RAM and a better chip?
It is always the very well-informed Jeff Pru who announces these new developments in an investor note forwarded by 9to5mac. In this letter, he states that the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will indeed feature the A18 chip, half-heartedly confirming a rumor that has been circulating for several months. So if Apple stops the artificial range effect at this point, it also means that the Pro models will offer a slightly more powerful chip, the A18 Pro.
This isn't the only improvement these base models would expect, as they would also offer 8GB of RAM instead of the 6GB currently present in the iPhone 15 and 16 Plus. We believe that Apple wants to prepare here for the future use of AI in its smartphones, which should be a priority for this future model.
Better WiFi, better 5G
However, Apple would continue to separate its two product lines by reserving certain standards and features to only the most expensive models. The two basic models should support Wi-Fi 6E, while the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max could offer Wi-Fi 7, according to the analyst. This new standard was officially certified earlier this year and should logically be supported by a growing number of devices.
Finally, the different smartphones also differ in their modem. Apple would even have energy efficiency for the basic models for a Qualcomm.
