iPhone 16 prototype mockup hints at redesigned camera layout, revised volume buttons

According to a report, Apple’s alleged iPhone 16 series smartphones may have a new external design. Back and side mockups of the iPhone 15 successor created by MacRumors reportedly show different design options being considered by Apple for the handset that is expected to launch next year. The iPhone 16 may feature a redesigned camera module with an action button along with a capacitive capture button – the latter replaced the mute switch for the first time on the iPhone 15 Pro models.

McRumors’ iPhone 16 mockup, created from Apple’s ‘early pre-production’ internal design details, shows three different designs for the upcoming handset. The iPhone predecessor to the first person handset.

The first model in yellow shows the iPhone 16 equipped with an integrated volume rocker and an action button. The second mockup showing the phone in pink shows the phone equipped with mechanical volume buttons and a camera module that resembles the iPhone 12.

According to the report, a third model shows the alleged phone in black with the same camera layout and volume as the pink model, but with a larger action button and a capture button – both of which may be capacitive rather than mechanical. ,

According to recent reports, Apple is reportedly planning to include action buttons on all of its iPhone 16 models next year. This year, only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max had the programmable button, but all four models had the Dynamic Island that came on the iPhone 14 Pro models last year.

It remains to be seen whether Apple will launch the iPhone 16 with capacitive buttons and a dedicated camera button for action buttons. According to reports, Apple was previously expected to equip the iPhone 15 series with capacitive buttons, but postponed its plan due to development challenges. Since it’s fairly early in the development cycle, there’s a possibility that Apple’s reported plans for the iPhone 16 may also change or evolve before the design is finalized.
