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.
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.
AF support and a lower f-number can provide a better shallow depth-of-field effect for selfie/portrait mode. In addition, AF can also enhance the focus effect for FaceTime/video call/live streaming. — 郭明錤 (Ming-Chi Kuo) (@mingchikuo) April 19, 2022
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.

Not only is it missing the obvious camera bulge, but the pill-dot is much, much larger than that per CAD renderings.
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.
GTF..... Oh wait https://www.macrumors.com/2022/03/13/kuo-only-iphone-14-pro-models-to-get-a16-chip/
I am just looking forward to periscope zoom, better low light performance, and astrophotography.
