After the introduction of the popular iPhone 13 series in September 2021, the American smartphone giant Apple is gearing up to unveil a new line-up, the iPhone 14 series, probably in the last quarter of the year, as speculations reveal in October 2022.

The upcoming iPhone 14 is rumored to come in four series without mini versions and will be available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch versions. Also, the smartphone will have the same display resolution as the current iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. However, the display on the upcoming flagship iPhones 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may be slightly taller to accommodate the new notch+pill design that will replace the notch.

However, today, a Tianfeng Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that all the four upcoming iPhone 14 series will receive an upgrade on the front-facing cameras to autofocus and a larger aperture. Ming-Chi Kuo shared the information via his Twitter handle, stating that the American smartphone giant will upgrade the front-facing cameras on all four iPhone 14 models to provide better shallow depth-of-field effects.

According to Kuo, Apple will upgrade the front-facing camera of the iPhone 14 to support autofocus, with an aperture of about f/1.9 to provide better portrait and cinematic modes shots than the iPhone 13’s fixed focal length and f/2.2 aperture. In addition, the autofocus feature and wider aperture would provide a better shallow depth of field for selfies to improve focus quality for FaceTime, video calls, and live streaming.

Therefore, the upcoming iPhone 14 series will be upgraded to a 48-megapixel sensor. For Portrait and Cinematic mode images, these updates would be fantastic. Not only that, but selfies in low light would benefit as well.

It’s worth noting that Apple put a lot of emphasis on FaceTime features during the previous WWDC, so having this improvement on the iPhone 14 series now would make a lot of sense. Stay connected with Techgenyz for more updates on the upcoming Apple smartphone.
