iPhone 13 series will support satellite communication, which can directly call and send messages via satellite
The reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a statement saying that Apple may add hardware that can directly connect to low earth orbit (LEO) satellite communication connectivity in the iPhone 13 series.
Taking into account that the current iPhone 13 series has been mass-produced and will be released soon if it is supported, these hardwares have obviously been integrated and can be used.
In addition, Ming-Chi Kuo is also known as the strongest Apple analyst. The accuracy rate is quite high, so now that the news in this area is released, I believe that Ming-Chi Kuo has definite evidence.
Networking through satellites is nothing new. The Starlink satellite network under Elon Musk relies on a large number of low earth orbit (LEO) satellites to provide networks on the ground.
Of course, even so, the Starlink network still provides users with terminal equipment for ground reception. After all, simply relying on mobile phone direct-chain satellites requires more powerful transmission power.
It is surprising that iPhone 13 supports a direct connection to LEO satellites. Although most users do not need to use this feature, the advantages of this feature are also prominent.
Direct satellite connection means that users do not need to rely on nearby operator base stations, which is especially important for users in remote areas and areas without network coverage.
Ming-Chi Kuo said that after enabling the relevant software functions, the iPhone 13 directly connected to the satellite can be used to make calls and send messages, allowing users to communicate with the outside world at any time.
As for whether it supports satellite Internet, it is still unknown, but direct satellite connection allows users to contact and ask for help in an emergency is also very practical.
