Apple iPhone 14 uses LG Innotek front camera for the first time

Apple's iPhone 14 will be equipped with a more expensive "high-end" front camera with autofocus , and for the first time use LG Innotek's front camera part.

Rather than opting for orders from Chinese suppliers, Apple reportedly chose South Korean firm LG Innotek to supply the iPhone 14's front-facing camera along with Japan's Sharp. It was previously reported that Apple plans to switch the front camera of the iPhone 15 to LG, but it has been brought forward this year.

The change is largely down to Apple's reclassification of the front-facing camera as a "high-end" component, with reports that the new front-facing camera will cost nearly three times as much as previous iPhone models.

The report is the same as the previous report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, saying that the front-facing camera of the iPhone 14 will support autofocus for the first time. Ming-Chi Kuo said that all four iPhone 14 series models, including the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, will feature an upgraded front-facing camera with autofocus and a larger F/1.9 aperture.

In contrast, all iPhone 13-series models feature a fixed focal length and a smaller F/2.2 aperture for the front-facing camera.
