After the release of the iPhone 15, users had many complaints about the dull shine of the iPhone 15 Pro's stronger brushed titanium frame. Rumors are circulating online that Apple will start using a method that improves titanium pretreatment and color treatment for the next-generation iPhone 16 Pro.

The new iPhone 16 could retain the strength of the new titanium frame while restoring the old, glossy look of the iPhone. The details were revealed by the Daily Mail.

This insider information was first published by an anonymous blogger with the nickname "yeux1122", who collects news and rumors on the blog platform of the South Korean social media company Naver.

After the iPhone 15 Pro was unveiled last September, users shared photos of their new smartphones on social media, telling of the significant discoloration of the titanium side strips.

The titanium frame was chosen for its ultra-strong and ultra-lightweight properties. Through a process called anodizing, the surface of titanium reacts with air to form very thin layers of oxides that scatter light and give the metal its incredible color.

But, according to Associate Professor Walter Navarrini of the Polytechnic University of Milan, one of the main drawbacks of using titanium is that it can also lead to "chromatic changes that cause greasy traces of oily substances on the surface."

In other words, when titanium comes into contact with sebum, fingerprints or cheek prints remain on the surface of the smartphone.

Tech site 9to5Google and its sister site 9to5Mac speculated what the rumored "polished titanium" frame on the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro might look like, showing a photo of the 2017 Google Essential Phone that used the same metal in a polished look.

The blogger also suggested that the iPhone 16 Pro Max could debut with the longest battery life and that the iPhone 16 Pro models could have an additional 2 TB of storage.
