Targeted new autofocus
The successor to the iPhone 13 offers the biggest front camera upgrade in years, according to Kuo. While Apple relied heavily on optimizations and functional enhancements for the main camera on the back of the smartphone with the previous iPhone generations, this time the camera on the front should also be significantly upgraded. The additional features include a powerful autofocus (AF), which quickly focuses on the right image areas for selfies, for example. Videos should also benefit from this, so Apple could also expand the selfie functions of the iPhone 14 compared to its predecessor on the software side.
Different aperture and better portrait mode
Other improvements include a six-piece lens that gains in quality over its five-piece predecessor. Changes to the aperture have already been reported before: The iPhone 14 therefore has a ƒ/1.9 aperture. Compared to the iPhone 13 (ƒ/2.2), the upcoming iPhone model could deliver better selfie shots in low light conditions. Specifically, the image noise could be reduced and the entire display brightened. An optimized portrait mode is also part of the feature list of the new front camera.
Apple is said to have determined suppliers
Kuo also goes into a number of suppliers that Apple is said to have already selected for the front camera components. For example, Cowell is one of the corporate partners. In addition, the South Korean company LG Innotek is coming for the first time. The lenses will be contributed by Genius and Largan, according to Kuo. Sony is still responsible for the sensors. Autumn will show how big the quality leap of the front camera is compared to the iPhone 13.
