What will the next iPhone be designed like? Predictions about cameras, buttons, sizes and colors – CNET Japan

iPhone design changes every year. Sometimes boldly, sometimes casually. If the rumors are true, the upcoming iPhone 16 will likely be the last.

Among the expected changes, the most notable is the addition of new buttons. There is also information that the display of the “Pro” model will be slightly larger and that the camera position in the standard model will be revised. However, these expectations are just rumors and not official information, so we will have to wait until September, when the iPhone 16 is announced, to find out the answer.

The iPhone's design has remained largely unchanged over the past two years. The few exceptions include the use of titanium material in the body of the iPhone 15 Pro and the use of tinted glass in the iPhone 15. In addition, in the United States, starting with the iPhone 14 released in 2022, the SIM card slot will be discontinued and the use of eSIM will become mandatory. However, perhaps the biggest change in the past few years is the fact that the edges of the iPhone 12, which was released in 2020, have become flat.

In this article we will present the expected changes in the design of the iPhone 16. Apple also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Rear camera mode

 MacRumorsAccording to, the camera placement will be different for the standard and 'Plus' models of the iPhone 16. The site expects that the new model will have vertically aligned rear cameras like the iPhone 12.

If Apple changed the camera position, why? For iPhone 16 “Pro” and “Pro Max” models,91 mobileHe claims the camera placement is the same as the current model, based on design drawings they obtained independently.

The iPhone's rear camera used to be arranged vertically, but with the iPhone 13, it is now arranged diagonally. A CNET review at the time quoted Apple as saying the change was to accommodate a larger camera module. If the iPhone 16 camera returns to a portrait layout, it could be because it's not needed anymore, but this is still speculation at this point.

Action button and video recording button

It looks like the iPhone 16 will have more buttons.

 Mark Gurman of BloombergReports indicate that the iPhone 16 will feature a button to record videos. However, it is unclear whether this button will be installed on all models or only the “Pro” model. Bloomberg also notes that the action button, which was exclusive to the Pro model in the iPhone 15, is expected to be included in all iPhone 16 models.AlsoMacRumorsAccording to, both buttons are capacitive and respond as soon as you touch them.

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max are equipped with an “Action Button” that can be used as a shortcut to launch the camera or enable Do Not Disturb mode. Personally, I would like this button to be included in the standard form and see more things that can be done with the action button. As CNET's Patrick Holland wrote, if you could change the actions triggered by the number of button presses, the possibilities would expand dramatically.

Larger displays for Pro and Pro Max models

The screen size of the iPhone Pro models hasn't changed in recent years, but that may change soon.BloombergHe is a well-known analystMing Chi KuoMacRumorsCEO of Display Supply Chain ConsultantsMr. Ross YoungThe iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max have larger screen sizes than the previous generation.

The current iPhone 15 screen size is 6.1 inches for the Pro model and 6.7 inches for the Pro Max model. If Young and MacRumors' predictions are correct, the iPhone 16 Pro model will be 6.2 inches or 6.3 inches, and the Pro Max model will be 6.8 inches or 6.9 inches. You may think it's a small difference, but when it comes to small devices like smartphones, small differences in size can make a big difference.

In the iPhone 12 Pro Max released in 2020, the screen size increased from 6.5 inches in the previous generation to 6.7 inches, but the screen size of the Pro Max model has remained unchanged since then. In 2020, the iPhone 12 Pro screen size also increased from 5.8 inches in the previous generation to 6.1 inches.

Will there be new colors?

If the rumors are true, the iPhone 16 Pro may come in more color options. According to information leaked on the Chinese social networking site Weibo, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are expected to be available in four colors: space black, grey, pink, and white.

This color range differs from the current color range for iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max (natural titanium, blue titanium, titanium white, and black titanium).
