Among the design elements that differentiate the iPhones is the rear camera module layout. On the iPhone 11, Apple utilized a vertical dual camera and eventually changed it to a diagonal setup on the iPhone 13 which is expected to be carried over on the iPhone 15. The Cupertino firm could switch back to vertical alignment on the iPhone 16 base model.

While Apple is yet to unveil the iPhone 15 in the coming months, there are now developments happening about the iPhone 16. Prolific Apple leaker and enthusiast @URedditor is forecasting that next year's standard iPhone 16 will debut with a vertical camera alignment which is similar to the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12. At the same time, it would make it a distinctive element and make the device easily recognizable as a new model.

The account only stated for the base iPhone 16, but it is safe to say this would mirror the bigger iPhone 16 Plus. Both could also share the same camera specifications, including a dual-lens and perhaps larger and thicker camera rings.

In addition to the iPhone display sizes, both iPhone 16 Pro may enlist a periscope camera after becoming exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max. It was also rumored that Apple will adopt next-gen Dynamic Island with under-screen Face ID sensors on these 2023 Pro iPhones while the bigger could model could be rebranded as iPhone 16 Ultra.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
