Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 series is witnessing a lot of speculation. Previous rumours focused on the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max’s anticipated 48MP rear cameras. The new information are about the major upgrade the front cameras of these iPhones will receive. Another leak claim upgrade of Lightning port to USB 3.0-level transfer speeds. Let’s dig a little deeper and see what we can discover.
Upgraded Front Camera for Better Selfies
In his latest iPhone 14 prediction, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo focuses on the phone’s selfie camera. All iPhone 14 models will have an updated front-facing camera sensor. This includes the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max variants . It will have f/1.9 aperture that supports auto-focus. For the past few years, iPhones have relied on fixed-focus selfie cameras and f/2.2 apertures for their front-facing cameras. This update will provide flexibility for capturing better images. Selfie/portrait mode can benefit from the addition of auto-focus as well as a smaller aperture, according to Kuo.
In comparison, all models of current generation of Apple iPhone 13 includes a front-facing camera sensor. It also includes an f/2.2 aperture and fixed focus image.
Devices will be able to obtain more light with a larger aperture. According to reports, Portrait Mode photographs and videos will have a better depth-of-field appearance as a result of the camera changes. When doing FaceTime or video chats via third-party apps, the front-facing camera’s focusing capabilities will improve the focus. We don’t know anything about the size or resolution of the camera’s image sensor. However the integration of AF is sure to improve the selfie experience. There will be update of rear-facing cameras in both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. A 48MP wide-angle lens expected to act as the primary sensor.
iPhone 14 Pro’s Upgraded Lightning Port
In addition to the mentioned reveal, an Apple product leaker known as LeaksApplePro reportedly claims that the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models are equipped with an upgraded Lightning port that delivers faster transfer speeds. Even though it hasn’t been confirmed, the leaker claims that Apple is working on a USB 3.0 Lightning port to replace the current USB 2.0 port for faster data transfer rates. In comparison to USB 2.0’s meagre 480Mbps transfer rate, USB 3.0’s maximum transfer rate of 5GB/s would be a significant improvement if confirmed.
