iPhone 13 without phone network interruption due to new technology
iPhone 13 will always have coverage even in places where there is no network
Various rumors indicate that Apple will present the new iPhone 13 in September, so various analysts and experts with information close to the company’s projects have revealed many functions that the upcoming Apple phones will provide.
The latest rumors come directly from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst who has built a reputation for information about future Apple products.
Kuo says the iPhone 13 will be Apple’s first phones with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite connections, so users will never be disconnected because in areas where there is no classic phone coverage, they will be able to take advantage of satellite connectivity for calls and messages..
Although the iPhone 13 will not be the first phones with the ability to make calls via satellite dialing, it is a very rare feature in phone manufacturers.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, this will be thanks to a modified version of Qualcomm’s X60 modem, which will be compatible with Globalstar’s n53 range of satellite calls.
Qualcomm X65 modem has also been announced with this compatibility, but this chip is expected to be used in many Android phones as well until 2022, so Apple will be ahead of its competitors.
On the other hand, Globalstar’s n53 band is considered a 5G band, so Apple could also offer high-speed connectivity in places where operators don’t offer coverage with the next generation network.
In addition to Globalstar, Starlink, Hughesnet and OneWeb are LEO’s satellite connectivity providers, but the analyst did not say if Apple had plans to offer compatibility with these services in the future.
