South Korean ET News recently revealed new information about the iPhone 14. Because of the improved quality, Apple would have to charge considerably more for it. A story that is now gaining support.
Despite the good reputation of ET News the whole story still seemed to be quite uncertain. Now that reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is also commenting on it, the story seems to be gaining a little more traction.
Selfie camera iPhone 14 gets major upgrade
If we are to believe Ming-Chi Kuo, in terms of the selfie camera, a major upgrade awaits us in September. According to the reliable analyst, the iPhone 14 will bring the biggest improvement in years in that area. In addition to the new Autofocus functionality, the smartphone also offers better photo and video quality.
The addition of the focus functionality is one that will significantly improve quality. Where current models keep the focus constant, the iPhone 14 will be able to automatically focus on certain objects. Just as it currently works with the cameras found on the back of the devices.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, this upgrade is assisted by the use of VCM and a 6P lens, where current models use a 5P lens. All in all, a noticeable difference in image quality, both in terms of photos and videos.
Who is Ming-Chi Kuo?
Ming-Chi Kuo is an analyst at TF International Securities and also one of the most reliable sources on Apple and all its products. He doesn’t have a 100% score, but when Kuo says it, the information is at least to be taken seriously.
It’s about time
As much enthusiasm as there is for such an upgrade, honesty dictates that it’s about time again. The last time the selfie camera got a major upgrade was in 2019 when Apple introduced the iPhone 11 series. So far, all models have had to make do with the 12-megapixel lens. At the other end of the market, for example, models with a 40-megapixel lens are being used. Even though hard megapixels do not say everything, this does show that such an upgrade is fairly appropriate.
