According to a Sisajournal story (via @Tech_Reve), Apple is likely to deploy a new technology known as BRS (Border Reduction Structure) to lower the size of the bezel on iPhone 16 models. The technique is popularly known as the ‘Borderless’ technology. It contributes to narrower bezels, particularly the bottom one—the chin—by “rolling the copper wires at the bottom upward.”
