Apple iPhone 14 series may come with autofocus

According to Kuo, Apple may drop the FF solution for its front-facing camera for the first time in its history. The iPhone 14 series is expected to come with the autofocus feature. It may come with “6P lens and bright f/1.9 aperture”. The autofocus feature will help those who use their front camera extensively to click pictures and make video calls.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo’s blogpost, Apple has also set its suppliers up for the new iPhone 14 front-facing camera. The major manufacturer of the sensor could be Sony, however, it is yet to be confirmed whether it will be different from the current 12MP module by a different Japanese manufacturer.

Overall, even if Apple decides not to go ahead with Sony, the autofocus feature will be the biggest selfie camera upgrade by Apple in years. As for the other suppliers, the main supplier of the lens is expected to be Genius and the CCM (CMOS Camera Module) is likely to be manufactured by LG Innotek and Kowell.

The same was indicated in earlier reports as well. Additionally, Japan’s Sharp is likely to continue making iPhone selfie cameras. Only, the unknown Chinese manufacturer is out of the game. Plus, since Apple is turning to a Korean manufacturer, the cost of making a selfie camera has tripled. Previously, when Chinese manufacturers were on board, selfie camera production used to account for just a third of the price of the rear camera.
