If Apple maintains its tradition, we will get a new model of iPhone in the next few weeks, and all the news that has come out so far regarding this new phone is very disappointing.
On the other hand, Ming-Chi Kuwa, an analyst and journalist who reports on Apple’s internal news, claims that the iPhone 13 will have satellite connectivity, meaning that the phone will send messages and make calls even without mobile signals.
Ming-chi claims that the iPhone 13 can be connected to low-Earth orbiting satellites thanks to its special Qualcomm X60 baseband chip.
By the way, these satellites are famous for Elon Musk’s famous Star Link internet service, but it is not the only company working in satellite internet.
Hughes Net and OneWeb have joined forces to compete with StarLink, and Amarset has announced a global 5G network, but in the case of Apple, it could be the global star that Qualcomm announced. Its upcoming X65 chip will support Global Star’s band N53 technology.
If the rumors turn out to be true, the X60 will also include the Five G, which is currently based on various technologies, including a high-speed but limited range of millimeter waves and a much wider but slower C-band.
From the lower orbit, Fiji will also be available in places where mobile towers are not installed. This is very useful for rural and remote areas where 3G and 4G connections are sometimes complicated to find, but how much will it affect the battery life of the mobile? It remains to be seen.
