Purported dummy units depicting the upcoming iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro have surfaced online today. Courtesy of prominent leaker Sonny Dickson, the new dummies showcase the updated camera housing design of the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, in addition to the rumored Capture button heading to all iPhone 16 devices.

The images depict previously rumored design refinements that could make their way to the iPhone 16 lineup. The most significant one is the redesigned and smaller camera housing bump for the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus that also rearranges the camera lens arrangement to be vertical rather than diagonal. The dummy units also confirm the presence of the Action button on the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, though they appear to be the same size as what’s currently found on the iPhone 15 Pro rather than being slightly bigger as some earlier leaks suggested.

The units also give the best look yet at the rumored Capture button, which will sit beneath the Side button and is present on all iPhone 16 models. The Capture button appears to sit flush with the iPhone’s housing, unlike all other buttons that protrude. This could mean that the button will not be a mechanical one, but will instead be capacitive and even rely on pressure to trigger certain functions. According to rumors, the Capture button will primarily be used to control certain camera settings, including zoom levels, readjusting focus, and triggering the shutter.

The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max dummy units appear to be slightly larger than their iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus counterparts in yet another sign that the Pro iPhones will gain larger 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch displays respectively. The new devices could also boast thinner bezels thanks to a new manufacturing process Apple is rumored to be applying soon.
