Apple doesn't regularly provide hardware upgrades to the iPhones' front-facing cameras, as the brand emphasizes the rear camera upgrades instead. However, for the iPhone 14, we can expect the largest upgrade in the iPhone's history, as a new report claims.

Reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo states that the iPhone 14 will use a 48MP sensor for the primary camera. Furthermore, it will also support autofocus and come with an f/1.9 aperture. Using autofocus is said to lead to improvement of FaceTime/video calling and live streaming, while improved aperture will deliver a better shallow depth-of-field effect in portrait mode.

According to the analyst, the upcoming iPhones feature a VCM (voice coil motor) that allows autofocus on the front-facing cameras. It will have a 6P lens instead of the existing 5P as well to improve the photo quality. Kuo also knows about the manufacturers supplying the parts to the camera, with Sony providing the sensor, Genius and Largan making the lens, Alps and Luxshare for the VCM orders, plus LG Innotek and Cowell for the CCM.
