According to rumors, Apple would be changing the design of its entry-level iPhone 16 with the rear cameras transitioning from a diagonal configuration to a vertical configuration that we last saw on the iPhone 12 in 2020. A new set of renders and design diagrams have appeared online detailing a pill-shaped camera island housing two sensors at the back with the LED flash on the side.

A separate render from Apple Hub gives us a glimpse of a few additional color options as well as a comparison with the iPhone 16 Pro, which is expected to offer the same basic design as the iPhone 15 Pro. According to rumors, the whole reason behind the redesigned camera setup on the iPhone 16 is for the device to be able to record spatial video that can then be played back on Apple Vision Pro.

Based on leaks so far, the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus will retain the same 60Hz refresh rate. According to rumors, the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus would also feature the side button and Apple А18 chipset, as well as 8GB of RAM and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.
