The iPhone 14 brings perhaps the biggest update to the front camera in years. Among other things, an autofocus should improve the images of the selfie cam. The lens will probably also be upgraded.
When there is speculation about the camera of upcoming iPhones, the focus of the rumor mill is mostly on the main camera. But the front camera is also becoming increasingly important in times of video meetings, not to mention its use as a selfie cam, which is vital for some users.
The iPhone 14 could bring significant progress here: From the biggest update for the front camera in years speaks noted TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a blog post. The front camera should finally get an autofocus, which will replace the fixed focus that is currently still in use. This alone should significantly improve the images from the front camera.
Aperture and lens are also improved
In addition, Apple will probably use a lens consisting of six components, one element more than currently. Finally, the new front camera will have an f/1.9 aperture, also a major jump from the current f/2.2 aperture used since the iPhone 11
On the one hand, the lenses will continue to be sourced from Sony, and the analyst names Genius and Largan as other manufacturers. The autofocus module is said to come from Alps and Luxshare. In addition, Cowell and, for the first time, LG Innotek components should also contribute. Apple has been working with the LG offshoot for many years.
The iPhone 14 will presumably appear in autumn. It remains to be seen whether all four models of the new iPhone will have the improved front camera.
