Apple will release its next flagship in a few months, just as the Cupertino-based giant does every year. Therefore, the upcoming iPhone 14 lineup will likely hit the market starting at some point in September or October.
There has been an increasing amount of info online indicating that Apple will bring an improved front-facing camera that will be mounted on iPhone 14. According to 9to5mac.com, Ming-Chi Kuo, a reputed analyst and leakster, confirms that the claims are true.
