iPhone 14 to gain improved FaceTime camera for better selfies

The rumor: In addition to larger camera upgrades on the main cameras, Apple is also improving the selfie camera too, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (72.5% accurate).

  • Apple is planning to add autofocus to the front-facing camera for the first time, which is said to “enhance the focus effect for FaceTime/video call/live streaming”
  • There will also be an improved f/1.9 aperture for better low-light performance and a better looking depth-of-field effect (the iPhone 13 has a worse f/2.2 aperture currently)

Sam’s take: That improved aperture sounds really nice…especially on the selfie camera that basically stayed the same between iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. Autofocus could be an even bigger improvement, though, as we’ve never had that on the front camera before. You’re just gonna look a lot better on the iPhone 14 cameras in most scenarios.
