iPhone 16 prototype: DSLR button, periscope cam, vertical lenses, flat touch buttons

The next iPhone will undergo transformation as a leaked prototype suggests new camera design and touch buttons.

New information about the upcoming iPhone 16 hints at a major transformation.

According to a tipster, the size of the iPhone 16 Pro models will have no change, contrast to others noting an increase. Although they have no accurate measurements, they suspected that the increase is just below an inch.

Regardless, they said that no size increase is needed to place a periscope camera on the iPhone 16 Pro. Another possible adjustment for the Pro models is the new button layout, where the capacitive touch buttons will become flat or a bit sunken into the chassis.

On the other hand, the base models will have a combined design factor between X and iPhone 11 with some variations here and there.

Besides the new touch button layout, the capture button is rumored to have a DSLR-like function. A report suggested that this key can detect different pressure levels just like buttons on digital cameras.

A main press will command the iPhone 16 to take a pic or record a vid. Pressing lightly will mean focus on the target or adjust that focus. But what’s interesting is the capability of the button to zoom in and out. How it will do that is yet to be confirmed.

While the new button sounds nice, take it with a grain of salt as we have no way of knowing if such a camera button will make its way to iPhone 16.

For now, check out the iPhone 15 Pro Max
