iPhone 6S will have an improved selfie camera

The iPhone 6S will have a better front-facing camera than Apple’s other devices.

That’s according to iOS 9’s code, at least. Developer Hamza Hood found coding that supports substantial updates to the FaceTime camera, including front-facing flash support, selfie panoramas, and 1080p video.

The camera has been a point of competition for smartphone manufacturers for some time now. After one-upping each other for quite a while on the rear-facing camera, they then turned their attention to the front-facing one. And Apple is finally getting in on the action, it seems.

It’s unlikely that the front-facing camera will be a major selling point. But the selfie generation will certainly appreciate any improvement they can get.

Apple has shown that it wants to improve its handsets’ photography capabilities. It recently acquired Israeli camera tech firm LinX, which creates multi-aperture camera gear for mobile units. Perhaps we will see the results of this acquisition in some upcoming iOS devices.
