iPhone 16 camera design leaked

  • The latest prototype for the iPhone 16 series shows two vertically aligned cameras inside a pill-shaped module. The dual-camera setup will include a wide lens and an ultra-wide angle lens.
  • This design is, however, only for the non-Pro iPhone 16 models, as the prototype being tested isn’t for the iPhone 16 Pro models, according to a reportby MacRumors.
  • The iPhone 12 series did have vertically aligned rear cameras but the design on the iPhone 16 series is said to be more similar to the iPhone X. So we might just see a return of the iPhone X’s pill-shaped camera module but in a newer design.
  • The same design has been tipped before by reliable tipster Majin Bu who shared schematics of the iPhone 16.

In a new investor note, an Apple analyst says his latest supply chain survey suggests Apple has lowered its 2024 iPhone shipments of key upstream semiconductor components to about 200 million units. This marks a decline of around 15 percent YoY for iPhone shipments, according to Kuo. The analyst says that this fall includes factors like the slowdown of iPhone sales in China and the lack of notable design and software innovations, as said. “Apple’s weekly shipments in China have declined by 30–40% YoY in recent weeks,” noted Kuo.
