iPhone 13 will allow you to carry out calls and to send messages via satellite using LEO technology, an acronym for low-earth-orbit, according to what was reported by the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Released on September 17 according to a leak, iPhone 13 will therefore provide an additional option to users in case they find themselves in an area not covered by the net of their operator.
That’s not all: Kuo speculates that this investment by Apple could pave the way for the use of LEO technology also within other devices of the Cupertino house, first and foremost theheadset AR of which so much is said.
The analyst reports that iPhone 13 will feature a custom version of the modem Qualcomm X60, and that this specific chip supports satellite communications.
Then it is clear that it will be necessary to understand if the satellite calls and messages feature will work only for Apple services or will also be usable by third party applications, as well as what will be any costs of the service.
