Apple has not yet revealed a series IPhone 15And rumors and leaks started talking about the iPhone 16, which will be launched in 2024, and it seems that the company is determined to change the position of the rear camera in the iPhone 16, to return again with a vertical design similar to the iPhone 12.
Apple turned to the rear camera arranged diagonally with the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, and the design moved to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, and the same slanted camera design is expected to continue with the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, which will be unveiled. later this year.
But according to the URedditor leaks account, Apple intends to change the design of the rear camera in both the standard iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, to return to the vertical shape, similar to the rear camera in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini.
The base model iPhone 16 will have a vertical camera layout, as opposed to diagonal on iPhone 15. This will make the device instantly recognizable as the latest model.
Currently, an iPhone 12-style design is in testing, though there is another design as well, same layout.

And the account of the leaks added that this change would make it easier to recognize the type of iPhone device immediately. However, there is no specific reason for this change in the position of the rear lenses. And Apple had made it clear when using the diagonal shape of the rear camera with the iPhone 13 and mini, that this diagonal design enables the advanced dual camera system. So Apple may have figured out a way to make the camera components work smoothly in portrait orientation.
Also, some leaks indicate that it is expected that the standard iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will come in the same known sizes, which are 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively, with a change in screen size in the two higher models, so that the iPhone 16 Pro comes with a screen measuring 6.3 inches, while the iPhone 16 Pro Max screen will measure 6.9 inches, and of course that category will contain a three-lens rear camera system, so the vertical shape will not be implemented on the upper category of the new iPhone.
Finally, it is still too early for the iPhone 16 rumor cycle as we are more than a year away from the launch conference, so we will hear in the coming period more rumors and leaks that talk about the iPhone 15 and even the iPhone 16, but Nothing is certain yet.
