As we inch closer to the announcement of the iPhone 14, we're hearing more and more rumours and leaks about what the phone might feature. And the latest suggestion could be a big deal for anyone who takes a lot of selfies (so almost anyone). One tech analyst says that the selfie camera, a.k.a. the front-facing camera, might be getting autofocus, as well as an additional lens element.

iPhones have been getting better and better for photography – there’s a reason they consistently show up at or near the top of our guides to the best camera phones and the best smartphones. However, it’s generally the sophisticated rear-camera arrays that get the meaty upgrades – Apple hasn’t changed much at all about the selfie camera since the iPhone 11, so a little attention in this department is well overdue. It also adds another tantalising possibility to the many rumours that we’ve already heard about the iPhone 14 so far.
