The iPhone 14 series is tipped to come with improved front-facing portrait and auto-focus features
One of TF International Securities' best-known employees, Ming-Chi Kuo, has just come back onto Twitter with new alleged details on how iPhone 14 selfie cameras might improve over their possible predecessors. This new leak does not cover how these shooters may look so much as how they may act.
The 14 Pro and Pro Max are indeed tipped to ditch the notch that typically houses the cameras in question; however, this potentially historic change might prove less impactful should the actual sensors found in the display do not change much compared to those that remain trapped in notches.
Kuo asserts that this is not to be the case, however: Apple's latest selfie cameras are now tipped to upgrade to an f-stop of about 1.9 (compared to 2.2 in the 13 series) and to front-facing auto-focus, which is not found in the OEM's current top-end mobile devices.
This, as Kuo points out, might allow the Cupertino giant to market its iPhone 14 Pro variants as capable of improved, judder-free FaceTime calls (not to mention video-conferencing in general), as well as casual or impromptu vlogging using front-facing video.
In addition, should this new rumor pan out, it seems Apple is preparing a response to the portrait-forward trend with potentially updated front-facing bokeh and so on in this mode. These upgrades are apparently destined for the vanilla 14 (and 14 "Max", perhaps) as well as the Pro models in 2022.
