Apple may make a controversial change, with a new rumor claiming that the size of the iPhone 17 Plus screen could shrink a bit, when compared to iPhone 16 Plus.

While Young doesn’t go into detail, he does believe the Plus model will rest between the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Pro screens, and the iPhone 17 Pro Max.

If true, this would make the iPhone 17 Plus display smaller than the iPhone 16 Plus. In May 2023, Young tweeted measurements for the nearer-term iPhone 16, with the Pro and Pro Max growing to 6.27 inches and 6.86 inches respectively, complete with a slightly longer aspect ratio.

However, at the time, Young said the iPhone 16 and Plus sizes would be identical to the iPhone 15 counterparts in size.

The claim from Young about the iPhone 17 Plus screen change is an unusual one, but it does come from a very reliable source. Young and DSCC has an extremely good track record when it comes to displays and supply chain stories, making this more likely to be true.

That said, while Apple does operate an extremely long production cycle to design and make its flagship devices and components, things could always change before Apple releases its hardware.
