iPhone 13 will take advantage of satellite connectivity for calls and messages


A few weeks after the launch of the new iPhone 13, interesting information on the characteristics of the devices seems to emerge on the web. According to when reported by the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will introduce support for LEO technology on new smartphones. What is it about? No more field problems, it will be possible to make calls and send messages using low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellite connectivity.

It is not the first time that we have heard of satellite connectivity on Apple smartphones. The fact that this time, however, Kuo has put his face in it means a lot. Kuo, in fact, is one of the most reliable analysts in the Apple world. In the past, it has predicted a flood of features for Cupertino’s products ahead of their official launch. Did he get it right with the iPhone 13 too?

iPhone 13: new world thanks to satellite connectivity

It is still not certain what the precise use of the new LEO technology will be on the iPhone 13. Will Apple use it only for the internet connection or will it also be possible to use it to make calls and messages? Also, will the service be free? The most accredited hypothesis, at the moment, is that according to which Apple will make the service free for its direct products only (iMessage, FaceTime). At the moment, however, it is only a matter of guesswork.

Kuo claims that the new iPhone 13 will feature a customized version of the modem Qualcomm X60. It will be thanks to this that it will be possible to exploit the new technology. The analyst also believes that Apple will also leverage this technology on many of its future products (eg Apple Glasses). Apple will present its new smartphones during the month of September. The truth about the iPhone 13 is close. Look forward to all updates on this.
