Apple is reportedly working together with its exclusive supplier Largan to improve the yield. Apple is also looking to pioneer specially moulded lenses to compensate for the smaller size of the smartphone. This would allow Apple to fit larger lenses without compromising the small form factor of the iPhone 16 Pro. (Unsplash)

This year, Apple is gearing up to give the iPhone a substantial design update, according to recent leaks. While the Pro series has seen regular tweaks, the non-Pro lineup has remained largely unchanged for some time. Over the past few months, we have come across several leaks regarding design changes, however, now the cases of the upcoming iPhone models confirm the claims. 

Vertical Cameras for All

A new design approach for the iPhone 16 is evident in case images that TechNetBook was able to obtain. Notably, the configuration of the camera is vertical. Apple's decision to standardise the vertical camera setup across both Pro and non-Pro models is likely aimed at enhancing features like 3D video recording, branded as Spatial videos. This move aligns with Apple's strategy to mainstream advanced photography and videography capabilities, possibly integrating with future mixed-reality projects.

New Buttons and Familiar Flash

What's intriguing is the introduction of an Action Button in the standard iPhone models, alongside rumours of a dedicated shutter button for the Pro series. This button, reportedly powered by the haptic engine, allows users to focus and capture photos with varying levels of pressure. Initially speculated to remove all physical buttons, Apple seems poised to integrate new tactile controls, particularly in the Pro models like the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max/Ultra, as rumoured.

The flash unit, now positioned outside the camera module, resembles earlier iPhone models but is notably larger, reminiscent of the iPhone X series.
