Less than two months have passed since the release of the new iPhone 15 lineup, but Apple is already working on the concept of a new iPhone 16 smartphone, which will be presented next fall.

Wccftech writes about it.

A designer under the nickname UPintheOZONE presented the concept of the future iPhone. The author believes that the new iPhone can turn the idea of the design and functionality of smartphones upside down. The concept of the new iPhone 16 allows for a similar design to the iPhone 11 and 12, but with support for Pro features, including a LiDAR scanner.

So, the new iPhone 16 concept shows a changed camera location for the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, as well as a LiDAR scanner and an action button.

"We expect significant changes to the iPhone 16 lineup next year. While the Pro models will be the highlight of the entry, the company will also make sure that the standard models receive notable updates. The latest iPhone 16 concept developed by user X @upintheozone shows the back and front of the phone, which is expected to be unveiled in September 2024," the newspaper writes.

The LiDAR sensor allows you to capture spatial video, capturing the depth of objects and people in the frame – such content can be viewed through the Apple Vision Pro headset.

The iPhone 16 concept also features a feature for shortcut lovers – the Action button. You can assign one of nine scenarios to it, through automation – almost any action. So far, only iPhone 15 Pro models come with an Action button.

In addition to hardware, Apple is also working on bringing AI features to iOS 18. Thanks to new hardware and software updates, the iPhone 16 will compete better with its own "Pro" devices.

Recall that Apple abandoned one of the main technologies: it became known what will change in smartphones.
