List the power of the iPhone that ranks it among the best phones to own and you will likely place the camera near the top of this list. So naturally, there’s a lot of focus on what Apple plans to do with the iPhone 14 camera when these new phones arrive in the fall.
Not that Apple hasn’t told us anything – the company is very close to unveiling products. But writers, analysts and other Apple viewers aren’t so cautious. Rumors of an iPhone 14 camera have surfaced ahead of a possible fall launch date, giving us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the new models.
As with most iPhone 14 rumors, there seem to be significant changes coming to the iPhone 14 Pro models, marked by major improvements to the main camera in Apple’s high-end phones. But you can also expect some improvements for the standard iPhone 14 that should once again make this handset a candidate for the best camera phone title.
Note that rumors at this stage are largely focused on the camera hardware, as such information can be gathered by Apple analysts from the company’s supply chain. Software improvements, such as the cinematic state Apple added as part of last year’s iPhone 13 release, should be written closer to the iPhone 14 release date, if the iPhone’s past rumors are to pass.
With that said, here’s a closer look at the biggest rumored changes coming to the iPhone 14 camera and what these moves mean for your mobile photos and videos.
1. Great original camera for iPhone 14 Pro
Easily the biggest change in the camera in the iPhone 14 lineup includes the original camera in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Both Pro phones are expected to use 48MP sensors for their original wide camera. This would be a big improvement over the current iPhone 12 Pro models with a 12MP camera. And really, that would mark a significant change for Apple as a whole, as the company has been using the 12MP camera as the main lens on the iPhone since 2015.
Many Apple watchers expect that the change will be limited to Pro models, with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max (or iPhone 14 Plus, if you believe the rumor of another name for Apple’s low-priced 6.7-inch handset). Face. Same 12MP sensors as before. In fact, a look at the iPhone 14 Pro rumors versus the iPhone 14 suggests that many major changes have been made to Apple Pro phones.
Enhancing the number of megapixels in the iPhone 14 Pro’s main camera will allow the phone to capture high-resolution shots with more detail. This will give the Photo Pro more to work with and interfere with photo editing, signaling a much richer Pro status for the iPhone 14 Pro camera app.
But in addition to the resolution, there are other effects to the 48MP main camera. For example, Apple could move to pixel binning, in which the pixels come together. In dark settings, this allows the combined pixel to capture more light and reduce noise. The end result would be better to take a low-light photo, albeit at the expense of resolution.
Another important thing about the 48MP sensor as the iPhone 14 Pro’s main camera – it will illuminate the way for Apple Pro phones to capture 8K video. Right now, the iPhone 13 Pro is up to 60 fps in 4K video recording. The high-resolution sensor removes hardware limitations in capturing 8K video, and will allow the upcoming iPhone to match the video recording features of some Android phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S22.
There’s another effect for Apple that shifts to a 48MP core sensor that goes beyond photo capacities. Apple will need to increase the size of the camera lens to accommodate the larger sensor. This means that the iPhone 14 Pro models have a wider, wider camera deck – a change that seems schematic for the next phone to appear to be a backup.
2. The front camera has been improved for all iPhone 14 models
The iPhone 14 doesn’t freeze when it comes to camera changes, but the most important rumor is that the next phone will include a front camera. Analyst Meng Chi Koo claims that all four models of the iPhone 14 will get an enhanced selfie cam, enhancing the 12MP TrueDepth camera that launched with the iPhone 11 lineup.
Specifically, Kuo predicts that the iPhone 14’s front camera aperture will get bigger, going from f / 2.2 to f / 1.9. This should make it brighter and create clearer photos when you take a selfie or start a FaceTime conversation. Talking about FaceTime improvements, Kuo also thinks that the front camera will be built automatically, which should lead to faster video in the bells.
In addition, the new front camera is proposed to feature a 6-element lens, enhancing the 5-element lens used by current iPhones. As we learned when the iPhone 12 switched from a 6-element lens to a 7-element lens, the more elements there are, the better the image quality. In particular, the additional element can correct distortion and distortion in the image for a better overall shot.
3. Periscope style zoom lens no
We hate bad news recipients, but the iPhone 14’s big camera rumor deals with a feature that is no Comes in Pro models. Early rumors had suggested that Apple might move to a periscope-style telephoto lens on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. This design will illuminate the way for Apple to increase the optical zoom in its phones, the location of the iPhone will compete better with the Samsung flagships on this page.
Right now, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is the undisputed king of zooming, thanks to two telephoto lenses that offer 3x and 10x optical zoom, respectively. With the help of the software, this lens can also support 100x space zoom for ridiculously close shots. (You’ll need to put the S22 Ultra on a pedestal to reduce any charge as a result of handling the phone.) The iPhone 13 Pro, with its 3x zoom, has a hard time keeping up. Just take a look at the ultra zoom shots of this Galaxy S22 in action.
The Periscope style lens is still on the way for future iPhones – not just the iPhone 14 Pro. Koo expects it to come next year, and other iPhone writers are now retracting that claim, specifically pointing out Apple’s supply chain that doesn’t include a periscope lens in the latest design of the iPhone 14 Pro.
4. Auto focus for iPhone 14 Ultra Wide camera
There’s an old sound that’s not getting much attention these days, but as far as we know, it’s still on the table for a possible iPhone 14 camera development. The ultraviolet camera on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max can add autofocus.
If true, this would reflect the feature that Apple has added to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max Ultraviolet lenses. It could also illuminate the way to optimize the macro mode for the standard iPhone 14 that Ultra Wide Lens currently supports in Apple Pro models.
The rumor is actually the date before the release of the iPhone 13 when Meng Chi Kuo – yes, he again – pointed out to the world the autofocus feature that goes to the iPhone 13 Pro Ultra Wide camera. At the time, Koo said the feature would then be added to other Apple phones, including the iPhone 14. The first part of this prediction came true last fall Let’s see if the second part continues this year.
