The front camera on Apple’s iPhones has received little attention over the years, despite the fact that the rear camera has seen major enhancements over the years.
When Apple launches the iPhone 14, we may see an improvement in performance. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new research on Apple’s front camera vendors. The names Cowell, Genius, Alps, and Luxshare (the businesses that won tenders to manufacture parts for Apple’s front camera) certainly don’t signify much to most readers, but Kuo also has some information on the new features of the iPhone 14’s selfie camera.
First and foremost, the camera will be equipped with focusing, resulting in crisper images and superior overall image quality. It will also have a 6-element lens instead of a 5-element lens, which will improve the quality of the images taken with the new camera. An increase in aperture from the iPhone 13 Pro’s smaller f/2.2 aperture is also expected in the iPhone 14’s front camera, according to 9to5Mac. Improve your low-light photography by using this.
In 2019, the iPhone 11 Pro was released with a 12-megapixel selfie camera, up from its predecessor’s 7-megapixel sensor. This was the last substantial change to the iPhone’s front camera. As a result, the iPhone’s selfie camera has stayed mostly unchanged since its introduction.
When it comes to front-facing cameras, Apple’s iPhone 14 is expected to have a whole new design, with an unusually large pill-shaped cutout on top of the display.
Preliminary reports stated that the “Pro” models of the iPhone 14 will have a 48-megapixel main back camera module, compared to the “ordinary” models. As far as the selfie camera is concerned, it’s not obvious if this will also apply.
