Hold on to your seats, tech enthusiasts! A recent leak suggests that the upcoming iPhone 16 will feature a vertical camera arrangement, shaking things up from the current diagonal camera setup seen in the iPhone 14. Picture it resembling the sleek design of the beloved iPhone 12.
Now, here’s the interesting part: Apple usually reserves major changes for its premium pro iPhones before trickling them down to later models. Take the Dynamic Island feature, for example, introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro and expected to make its way to the standard iPhone 15 in September 2023.
According to a leak by the Twitter user @URedditor, also known as Unknownz21, the iPhone 16 will sport a striking design different from its predecessor, the iPhone 15.
The base model iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will flaunt a vertical camera arrangement, deviating from the diagonal setup we’ve grown accustomed to. Unknownz21 suggests that this tweak aims to give the new model an instantly recognizable identity, as suggested by Unknownz21.
Now, Why’s Apple Switching Back to the Vertical Layout?
While Apple initially adopted the diagonal layout to accommodate better sensors and stabilization motors, it seems they may no longer require the extra space in the future. It’s a curious move indeed, especially considering that Apple’s recent focus has been on functionality rather than outward design changes for its standard iPhones. However, with the vertical camera setup, the iPhone 16 is poised to differentiate itself from the iPhone 15, which might not undergo significant visual changes compared to the iPhone 14.
A Little About the Leaker, Unknownz21.
This leaker is a little new to the scene, but they have so far proven to have a history of accurate leaks. Previously, the leaker shared “Gobi” AR codes, offering a glimpse into the world of App Clips before iOS 14 was even announced. Since then, Unknownz21 has been on a roll, sharing leaks about the iPhone 15 lineup, and now, shifting their focus to the iPhone 16. Their leaked information aligns with other reputable sources, building their credibility in the leak community.
Of course, we must be patient until Apple officially reveals the iPhone 15 during their anticipated event in September. Until then, we have reason to trust Unknownz21’s leaks. As for the iPhone 16 lineup, we’ll have to wait patiently until 2024 for its grand unveiling.
