iPhone 16 Rumored to Have Vertical Camera Layout

iPhone 16 Rumored to Have Vertical Camera Layout Like iPhone 12

With the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, Apple made the switch to rear camera lenses that are arranged diagonally. The design was carried over to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. Later this year, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are anticipated to maintain the diagonal layout, but these models will reportedly be the last to do so.

The iPhone 16 would revert to the vertical design last seen on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini if this rumor turns out to be true. The leaker said this change will make the device “instantly recognizable” as the latest model, at least when combined with other newer design aspects like the both Dynamic Island and a USB-C port.

Beyond aesthetics, Apple’s motivations for this change remain a mystery. When the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini launched, Apple simply said “a redesigned rear camera layout with diagonally arranged lenses enables the advanced dual-camera system,” so perhaps Apple has once more figured out how to cram camera components into a vertical orientation.

The iPhone 16 won’t go on sale until September 2024, so the design could change by the time that Apple makes the announcement.

For the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, which are rumored to have larger 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch displays, respectively, bigger changes are anticipated. As a result, the vertical layout would not work with those devices’ triple-lens rear camera systems.

Before App Clips launched in 2020, URedditor accurately shared some information about the feature. More recently, URedditor has gained notoriety as the first source to share an alleged real-world image of the iPhone 15 Pro with a USB-C port as well as various other iPhone 15 details. After the iPhone 15 is released, we’ll know more about the source’s reliability.
