Handheld devices are always much more convenient when they have a much bigger screen to work with. And, based on the latest rumors, Apple seems to agree since it’s reportedly using new tools that would maximize screen space by making the iPhone 16 bezels smaller.

That’s according to the South Korean news site The Elec, which also revealed that the new technology would be called Border Reduction Structure. This latest tool Apple is allegedly employing should make the normally difficult bezel reduction process easier since a smaller frame would mean much less space for the smartphone’s hardware. However, whether or not it will work on a large scale remains to be seen, and only its launch on the iPhone 16 release date will tell if it reaches the level that Apple products have become known for in recent times.

Border Reduction Structure could mark a new era for iPhones

With Samsung Display expected to supply OLED screens for each iPhone 16 model, a bigger display achieved via the Border Reduction Structure technology would be even more of a treat for potential users. So, even though Apple hasn’t confirmed the iPhone 16’s launch, these latest details indicate that its oft-speculated end-of-year launch may ring true. With this in mind, there’s plenty to look forward to for fans of the Cupertino-based tech company, especially since two new model numbers for the iPad have recently surfaced.
