Apple Likely to Stick with Color-Infused Back Glass on iPhone 16

The iPhone 15 lineup

As the launch nears, we are witnessing a deluge of iPhone 16 rumors and leaks. Yesterday, a noted leakster showcased dummy units for the iPhone 16. Earlier, the same leakster had revealed a purported iPhone 16 case. The latest rumor hints at a color-infused back glass for the iPhone 16. If true, the latest iPhone backless could feature five colours. 

This is not a new feature or addition. Last year, Apple introduced a dual-ion exchange glass process on the non-pro iPhone 15. The process imparted a smoky finish with contrasting colours from the main frame. In all likelihood, Apple will use the same process to create a new pallet of colours for the backless. 

For the first time in a smartphone, colour is infused throughout the back glass, creating five beautiful colours. The back glass is strengthened with an optimised dual-ion exchange process before being polished with nanocrystalline particles and etched to create a luxurious, textured matte finish.”

The rumor is not entirely isolated. Last month, a Weibo user from China said that Apple could use the dual-ion exchange process for the back of the iPhone 16 Pro. However, the latest rumour doesn’t talk about the Pro models. It sticks to the non-pro variants. 

Apple is expected to pull the wraps from the iPhone 16 series in September this year. The newest iPhone is likely to tout advanced AI features, a better camera module, an Action Button on all iPhones and a seven color options. Another significant change is the display size. Rumor mills suggest that iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max could come equipped with a larger display as opposed to the iPhone 15 Pro series. Lastly, a minor upgrade on the battery front is also likely on the card.
