Leaked images indicate design changes to iPhone 16


Apple is planning to make a few design changes to its iPhone 16 line this year, as shown by leaked images of iPhone dummies. Based on the images, the company is planning to incorporate two additional buttons and redesign the camera system.

The pictures of what seems to be iPhone 16 dummies were posted last week by tech reviewer Sonny Dickson on X, formerly Twitter.

One of three images suggests that Apple is considering introducing a vertically aligned camera layout instead of the diagonal camera systems first unveiled with the iPhone 13. Another image depicts an Action button equipped at the left side of the phone alongside the volume up and volume down buttons, replacing the “mute” button.

The action button was introduced last year in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models. It can be programmed to launch an app or perform a specific action.

According to the leaked images, on the right side of the phone, Apple is considering adding a Capture button that would be used for zooming. Previous reports from MacRumors, Bloomberg, and other sources indicated that the Capture button will be able to detect multiple levels of pressure to emulate a shutter button from dedicated digital cameras and enable video recording.

Apart from design changes, the new models appear to be slightly larger than the previous ones.

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been several more leaks of iPhone dummies that align with all the changes presented in pictures shared by Dickson. Last week, he also shared an image of an iPhone case that is designed for a vertically aligned camera layout.

Apple usually announces new iPhones early in September, but due to all the leaks, the main changes and features are usually known months before the event.
