New iPhone 16 rumor is an early April Fools joke

The launch of the following iPhone could also be over 6 months away, however that is not stopping the leakers and tipsters from dreaming up potential new options that may materialize on the iPhone 16. If we’re being variety, the most recent rumor is considerably far-fetched. If we’re being sincere, it could as nicely be an April Fools joke a month too early.The tip comes from Twitter tipster Majin Bu, who claims to have “consulted completely different sources” and each counsel a change to the design of the rear-facing digital camera array/bump. If true, this could be fairly huge, as the present fashion of the iPhone’s digital camera array has been essentially unchanged for the reason that iPhone 11. However, whereas Apple might nicely see match to revamp the digital camera bump for the iPhone 16, we HIGHLY doubt it will find yourself resembling the render on this rumor Tweet.((*16*) credit score: Twitter / @MajinBuOfficial)The catastrophically ugly chunk of digital camera bump within the render is like a large triangular wart, protruding manner too removed from the remainder of the again panel. Majin Bu likens the design to a Philips electrical shaver, however that is actually not truthful to the shaver. If something, Apple’s present trio of digital camera lenses on the iPhone 15 is extra befitting of the shaver analogy. This iPhone 16 render reminds us extra of the triangular brand utilized by the Google Play retailer. I’m positive if an Apple designer had really pitched such a design, it will have been dismissed instantly for this very motive.Majin Bu goes on to say that the brand new triangular digital camera bump might “permit extra cameras to be added to the module sooner or later”. This too appears implausible, as Apple’s present design of separate, remoted digital camera lenses lends itself higher to the addition of additional lenses. Why would confining the digital camera modules inside a triangular housing assist so as to add extra lenses?Finally, the tipster does admit that he has “no manner of verifying whether or not this data is 100% correct or true”. Shall we subsequently assume then that it 100% is not correct or true. That is, except Apple drops tech bombshell of 2024 and companions with Google, releasing the iPhone 16 ‘Pixel Edition’: full with Play-button impressed digital camera bump, a pink/yellow/blue/inexperienced chassis colorway, and to essentially shake issues up, a local Android OS. You heard it right here first, of us.Story credit score: Phone Arena
