The next flagship iPhone 14 series is expected to launch in September this year, and ahead of its launch, rumor mills are keeping us busy with details of alleged features of the new smartphone series.
In his latest commentary on the iPhone 14 series, TF Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that Apple will upgrade the front camera across the new iPhone series with improved autofocus to deliver an enhanced better video calling experience.
It has been heavily speculated that Apple will introduce a redesigned display on iPhone 14 Pro models with a pill+hole notch to offer larger screen real estate.

In his new tweets, Kuo writes that all four models of the upcoming iPhone series will receive upgraded autofocus and larger aperture, an upgrade to the front camera after two years.
The front camera of four new iPhone 14 models in 2H22 would likely upgrade to AF (autofocus) & about f/1.9 aperture (vs. iPhone 13’s FF (fixed-focus) and f/2.2). AF support and a lower f-number can provide a better shallow depth-of-field effect for selfie/portrait mode.
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.
Furthermore, Kuo states that upgraded AF will improve the video calling experience. The improvement will also allow users to capture better images in Portrait and Cinematic modes and low light conditions, especially for video calling.
Based on other reports, the new series will not include a 5.4-inch mini model instead it will have two 6.1-inch models and two 6.7-inch models. iPhone 14 series would be powered by the next-generation A16 Bionic chip, thicker design, and large rear-camera bump. The Pro models will be equipped with a 48MP rear camera system, 5G chips by TSMC for battery life and power consumption, and a memory bump to 8GB RAM.
