Later this year, Apple will launch its iPhone 14 series. We hear a lot about the new Apple products before they go on sale, so we know what they look like and how they work.
Rumors have said that the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will have a 48MP rear camera, but today we learned some exciting things about the iPhone’s front cameras.
Also, a recent report says that Apple could add an upgraded lightning port that could transfer files at the same speed as USB 3.0. Let’s look at the small things.
Upgraded Selfie Camera for the iPhone 14 Has Been Suggested.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known Apple analyst, recently took to Twitter to share an interesting fact about the front camera of the iPhone 14 models. There could be a way to add auto-focus and an f/1.9 aperture for the front camera on all four of the iPhone 14 variants, Kuo said in his tweet. You can see the tweet below.
This would be a significant change for the selfie camera on the new iPhones, compared to the fixed-focus, f/2.2 front cameras on the iPhone 13 models. Kuo says that having auto-focus and a lower aperture can take selfies and portraits look better when they’re taken.
When Apple adds autofocus to the selfie camera on the iPhone 14 models, it will be a first for the company. This feature is also expected to make FaceTime and other video calls look better. Even though it’s dark outside, we can also expect it to work better.
The fixed focus keeps things in focus for people who don’t know. On the other hand, Autofocus is better because it ensures the important subject is in a direction in almost all situations by moving.
iPhone 14 Pro has a new Lightning Port.
Other than this, a report from an Apple leaker called LeaksApplePro says that Apple could put a new Lightning port on the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models. This would allow for faster transfer speeds.
The leaker says that the company is working on a new Lightning port that can transfer files at USB 3.0-level speeds instead of USB 2.0 rates. It will be a big deal if this is true because USB 3.0 can transfer files at speeds of up to 5GB/s, compared to USB 2.0’s 480Mbps.
Now, it’s worth noting that previous reports said that Apple could finally put the USB-C port on its new iPhones. A new report says that even if the company does that, it won’t be able to get the royalties and money from third-party lightning connector manufacturers if they do. There’s a good chance that the company will keep the lightning port and upgrade it rather than switch to the USB-C port.
Details about the iPhone 14 show that there will be two Pro and two non-Pro models, bigger batteries, more RAM, two chipsets, etc.
