The upcoming Apple iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models are expected to launch sometime in 2024. However, before this, a leaked image showing two cases has emerged, offering us a look at potential design changes for the upcoming lineup. The image put up by tipster Sonny Dickson on X (formerly Twitter) reveals that the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will have a vertical rear camera layout – a departure from the square camera island with rounded edges found on the iPhone 15 series. The new setup comprises individual camera rings for the Wide and Ultra Wide lenses, placed behind a raised, pill-shaped surface. 

Besides, the image highlights the contrast in size of the two cases, suggesting that the case on the left side could be for the larger iPhone 16 Plus, whereas the one on the right side could be for the standard iPhone 16. Both cases, which get a vertical rear camera setup, are likely to be offered alongside a function of spatial video recording. The video recording technology, currently reserved for the iPhone 15 Pro models and Vision Pro headset, enables you to record 3D videos, enhancing the user experience. Besides that, one can see a plastic cutout for the LED flash next to the camera island. On top of that, Apple's Action button, a hallmark of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, is also on the cards.
