Details leaked by a source suggest that Apple’s rumored iPhone 16 series of handsets may include a revised back camera arrangement. The iPhone 16 may be the first phone since the iPhone 12 with a vertically oriented camera configuration, according to a leaked picture purporting to show the camera module. According to a shady source, the iPhone 16 range is rumored to have five variants, with the 6.7-inch Plus model supposedly being replaced with a “Plus SE” model.

A picture of the alleged iPhone 16 camera module posted on the microblogging site by X (formerly Twitter) user Majin Bu seems to support earlier rumors that the phone will have a vertical camera arrangement. According to MacRumors, it could independently confirmed through industry sources that the I-34 camera project component was real.

The X user recently released images purporting to be renderings of the iPhone 16 series of devices. The business may release five models this year, in contrast to the iPhone 15 range, based on the leaked photos. The iPhone 16 SE, iPhone 16 Plus SE, iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max are possible candidates.

The normal iPhone 16 model features two rear cameras arranged vertically, but the iPhone SE devices are seen to have just one. The company’s flagship iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models are shown to have a triple rear camera arrangement that is vertically aligned. The X user claims they are unaware of the image’s origins, thus it’s important to treat this assertion with caution.


Not only are modifications to the camera arrangement on the iPhone 16 lineup anticipated but Apple is also anticipated to outfit every model in the series with an Action Button (debuting on the iPhone 15 Pro models) and a dedicated Capture button, which is purported to offer instant access to the camera.

It’s important to remember that the anticipated release of Apple’s rumored iPhone 16 variants is still some months away. Additionally, it’s uncertain if Apple would forgo the iPhone 15 Plus sequel in favor of a bigger, single-camera iPhone 16 Plus SE model, as well as if it will cost less than the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus from the previous year. In the next months, more information on the company’s 2024 iPhone models should become available.
