Apple has reportedly chosen a new supplier for its front-facing camera to make a high-end lens. South Korean supplier LG Innotek will install the new selfie camera on the upcoming iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, according to a report Monday from South Korea-based tech news site ET News, citing unnamed industry sources. The front camera will also come with an auto-focus function, the report said.

The iPhone 14 is expected to be launched in the fall and is rumored to ditch the notched display. Apple is also expected to get rid of the iPhone Mini, leaving an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max in the new lineup. Screen sizes are also expected to get a little bigger, while physical SIM cards could also be on the way out as iPhones move to eSIM only.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
