Leaked iPhone 16 and 16 Pro molds suggest the MagSafe components could get a makeover

Casemaking molds of the iPhone 16 series

A lot of supposed details about the iPhone 16 series are pouring in on the internet. Recently, we reported that the standard iPhone 16 models could come with a color-infused glass back, similar to the non-Pro iPhone 15 models. Now, according to the latest leak, the MagSafe charger magnets on the back of the upcoming iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro models could get a bit slimmer.

Alleged case-making molds for the iPhone 16 series have appeared online, courtesy of ShopSystem. These molds, apart from showing the back design of the iPhone 16 models, which we have already seen in previous leaks, show off one important detail: the MagSafe charging alignment ring could get slimmer this year.

When both the case-making molds of the iPhone 16 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro are placed side by side in an image, it is evident that the iPhone 16 Pro's MagSafe charging attachment ring magnets are thinner than those found on the iPhone 15 Pro. Here's a look at the side-by-side image:

If this report turns out to be true, MagSafe accessory manufacturers will have to put in efforts from scratch to adapt their products to fit the new system. This change also suggests that Apple is minimizing the amount of magnetic material it's using in its iPhone 16 lineup.

Another important thing to note, as highlighted by ShopSystem, is that although the thickness of the MagSafe charging attachment rings has been allegedly reduced, older MagSafe will continue to work with newer models because, aside from the thickness, there aren't many changes and the position of the magnets remains unchanged.

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus molds also co-relate with previous leaks that these models will come with a vertical camera module. Apple is also rumored to be working on a technology that will help reduce lens flare when recording videos. There are also rumors that there will be a dedicated camera shutter button on the iPhone 16 series.
