Kuo: iPhone 14 Models Likely to Feature Upgraded Front Camera With Autofocus

All four iPhone 14 models that are expected to launch later this year will likely feature an upgraded front camera with autofocus and a wider ƒ/1.9 aperture, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a tweet today.

iPhone 14 Mock pill and hole
The wider aperture would allow more light to pass through the lens and reach the front camera's sensor on iPhone 14 models. Kuo said these camera upgrades could result in an improved depth-of-field effect for Portrait mode photos and videos, while autofocus can enhance focus during FaceTime and Zoom video calls. By comparison, the front camera on all iPhone 13 models has fixed focus and an ƒ/2.2 aperture.

Kuo has previously claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in particular will also feature an upgraded rear camera system with a 48-megapixel Wide lens that will enable 8K video recording, up from 4K currently.


Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max around September as usual. For more rumors about these devices, including other features that are expected, read our iPhone 14 roundup.

You keep posting this same inaccurate hero image, you're just fanning the flames come release time. Put up an accurate depiction based on leaks and set some expectation correctly, lol.

Not only is it missing the obvious camera bulge, but the pill-dot is much, much larger than that per CAD renderings.

This is like saying "There is going to be a new iPhone next year? GTFO" in response to ANY iPhone 14 rumor.

The front camera going from ƒ/2.2 aperture to ƒ/1.9 aperture and gaining autofocus is new information.

If you don't care, cool, but your comment feels lazy.

Actually...it's not. Despite the front camera getting a bump on all models, the iPhone 14 models (non-Pro) are expected to retain the same notch and the same A15 chip and the same camera system as iPhone 13. Which is quite absurd, and is why your comment is unintentionally unironic.

Well, there have been years where the camera was minimally updated or not at all, also not everybody has last year's iPhone, many are looking to upgrade from older phones. So, this is still worth reporting.

I am just looking forward to periscope zoom, better low light performance, and astrophotography.
