Apple’s subsequent iPhones can also have an improved selfie camera, with autofocus capabilities and a critical broader aperture, in accordance with a prediction by smartly-identified analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Now not like Apple’s most up-to-date mounted-focal level manufacture, an autofocus-enabled front-dealing with camera can also let the iPhone 14 procure clearer photos even when you’re closer or further faraway from the camera. A wider aperture — Kuo predicts f/1.9 vs. the iPhone 13’s f/2.2 — would add a splash of background blur and let in additional light, making it fairly better for nighttime selfies or FaceTime portrait mode.
Kuo and others have predicted that Apple will be weeding out the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro, as a exchange opting for a gap-punch manufacture. While that does mean that Apple would have to compare the upgraded camera correct into a smaller condominium, it’s no longer an unparalleled challenge — the selfie cam on Samsung’s Galaxy S22 has autofocus and lives internal a circular cutout. It’s worth noting that, while Samsung’s had autofocus front cameras for years, it’s no longer a standard feature from other manufacturers; the selfie cam on Google and OnePlus’ most up-to-date flagships are mounted focal level.
AF make stronger and a lower f-number can provide an even bigger shallow depth-of-field elevate out for selfie/portrait mode. In addition, AF can also enhance the focal level elevate out for FaceTime/video call/dwell streaming.

Kuo’s tweet says that the upgraded front camera can also attain to “four new iPhone 14 fashions,” implying that Apple won’t exercise better selfies as a promoting level for its Pro telephones (even though that wouldn’t have been an nice shock, on condition that better camera programs have been a mainstay of the Pro lineup). That’s merely to hear, particularly amidst rumors that the iPhone 14 Pro will procure A16-assortment processors, while most up-to-date-gen A15 processors will energy the authorized fashions, and that Apple will also bump up the relief camera resolution for its bigger-cease telephones.
While I catch the iPhone’s most up-to-date front-dealing with camera to be totally serviceable, it can also potentially elevate out with some attention. Apple brought its night mode to the selfie camera with the iPhone 12, nevertheless it hasn’t improved its aperture since the iPhone 6 (even though obviously, that’s no longer the cease-all, be-intelligent on quality).
