The highly anticipated iPhone 16 Pro is set to hit the market in just three months, assuming Apple adheres to its traditional September release timeline for new products. Speculation has been swirling regarding potential upgrades, with recent leaks hinting at a slightly larger display compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 15 Pro. Adding fuel to the rumour mill, leaked images purportedly showcasing iPhone 16 Pro cases suggest significant changes to the device's camera setup.

Leaked Images Showcase Promising Changes

Shared on X by leaker Majin Bu, the alleged iPhone 16 Pro cases have caused a stir, particularly due to their enlarged camera module. Featuring five MagSafe charging cases in transparent and black hues, accented with white, purple, and blue borders, these images highlight a substantial cutout for the iPhone 16 Pro's camera setup. This hints at the possibility of larger sensors compared to the iPhone 15 Pro, with the camera island nearly touching the MagSafe ring, a departure from the layout of its predecessor.
