iPhone 16's camera module leaks confirming new vertical arrangement

The iPhone 16 will have a redesigned camera arrangement on its rear, with the two sensors being stacked vertically this time around, in a weird but obvious nod to the way Samsung likes to do these things.

Such an arrangement has been rumored multiple times so far, and today we get an image of what is purported to be the iPhone 16’s camera chassis. And indeed this shows two cameras vertically arranged, not diagonally as they are the iPhone 15.

The information comes from Twitter/X leakster Majin Bu, but was also independently confirmed with industry sources by MacRumors. This is in fact the main camera chassis for the “I-34” camera project, which is intended for use in the base iPhone 16 model which will be released this September, according to said sources.

With such a vertical setup, Apple could bring Spatial Video recording to the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, and that may well end up being the reason for the change – and not Apple’s sudden love for Samsung’s ways.

The iPhone 16 is also expected to get the Action button carried over from the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, and it will come with an additional Capture button with force-sensor technology, located on its right side.
