According to Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned analyst who provides high-level insight into new Apple products, all iPhone 14 models will likely come with a front camera that includes autofocus and has a greater aperture of */1.9.
By increasing the aperture of the iPhone 14, the camera sensor on the front of the device will be able to receive more light from the lens. In Kuo’s opinion, there could be some indication that these improvements could result in an improved depth of field effects for video clips and still images taken in Portrait mode, while autofocus on the other hand could boost focus for FaceTime and Zoom calls.
Moreover, most of the iPhone 13 models have a fixed focus camera on the front and an aperture of f/2.2 for the rear camera, whereas there is no such feature on the front camera.
Both Reports suggest that there is going to be an iPhone 14 Pro model as well as the iPhone 14 Pro Max model to feature a 48-megapixel Wide lens of the rear cameras, which can capture 8K-quality video content, up from the current 4K support. This report has also claimed that both models of iPhones will feature a non-removable battery.
Featuring autofocus and an aperture of f1.9, the iPhone 14 models will replace the iPhone 13 with autofocus & f/2.2 (instead of fixed focus & f/2.2) in 2H22.
In selfie/portrait mode, shallow depth-of-field can be achieved more effectively with autofocus and a lower f-number. FaceTime, video calls, and live streaming won’t only have better focus, but AF will also enhance the overall image quality.
I am reminded that it is Apple tradition to release its newest offerings around September, which should include the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Apple will be upgrading all iPhone 14 models with a new front-facing camera
According to Kuo, the four iPhone 14 models will include better front-facing cameras to give users a better selfie experience. There will be an autofocus front-facing camera, and its aperture will be wider at 1.9.
It is estimated that the increased aperture on the iPhone 14 models might result in greater light passing through the lens, reaching the sensor, and thereby improving the quality of photographs taken with the front camera. As Kuo revealed earlier this year, Apple’s cameras will be upgraded so that they will be able to better capture the depth of field when taking pictures or videos in portrait mode.
The autofocus feature has also been speculated to be useful when it comes to FaceTime and Zoom video calls as well as to help better focus on the video. As compared to the iPhone 13 models, all of the iPhone 13 models have a fixed-focus camera with a 2.2 mm lens at a smaller aperture (*/2.2) and a fixed focus rear camera.
In this confirmation, it was confirmed that the upgraded front-facing camera will be installed as part of a new pill-shaped TrueDepth system for the new iPhone 14 Pro models, rather than using the notch on the current iPhone models. However, Apple has not yet responded to the claim. The iPhone 14 standard models should, on the other hand, be similar to those on the iPhone 13 and will feature the same design as that of the iPhone 14.
Moreover, Kuo, who previously claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would be equipped with an upgraded camera system that would have a 48-megapixel Wide angle lens that would also support 8K video recording, a significant upgrade over the iPhone 13 Pro that had a 12-megapixel camera and could only record 4K video.
Furthermore, it is also possible that Apple’s long-rumored AR/VR headset (outside of being compatible with the iPhone 14 Pro, of course) may be compatible with the high-resolution 8K videos recorded with the phone.
According to Kuo, iPhone 14 Pro models are equipped with cameras that have been improved over the iPhone 13 and 14 models, which I believe will allow Kuo to “elevate mobile photography to a new level.”.
The new iPhone 14 lineup is expected to be unveiled by Apple towards the end of September, as is usual for Apple. Here at iPhone 14 News, we have a roundup of more rumors regarding these devices, including information on other features you can expect to see.
