The front cameras of the iPhone 14 will be made by LG
Apparently, the front camera of the iPhone 14 will improve considerably, as will the rear camera, and will cost almost 3 times more than the one included in previous models. This is due to the arrival of the autofocus function, which the iPhone’s selfie camera currently lacks.
