Have we seen the face of the iPhone 16? Wow! Is it actually different this time?

So, we're not quite a quarter of the way into the 'iPhone cycle', but you can be sure that Apple are working hard on the next generation of iPhone and, according to a MacRumors post, we can expect to see a new camera arrangement of the first time since the iPhone 13.

Specifically, according to an 'anonymous source' the iPhone 16 will see vertically aligned cameras, perhaps more like those on the iPhone 12, or maybe even in a single 'pill' like the iPhone X. (At the moment the iPhone 15 features the camera arranged diagonally inside the square.) To their credit, MacRumors do pick some good sources. They have also created some image mock-ups, including the one above, to illustrate that concept. The colors, however, are apparently those being considered at Apple for the iPhone 16, codename 'DeLorean'.
