Last week, we did an article concerning how the iPhone 13 smartphones will use a satellite connection to make calls or send messages. We also added that this feature would not be available to all countries. Yes, that’s right, at the moment, there is no need to fast-forward this technology to all regions since apple will only avail this component to markets where it is being craved for.
This speculation was started by Ming-chi Kuo, an analyst at TF International Securities, who claimed that the iphone 13 would be using a satellite connection. Suppose this feature is not put into a test at the moment or instead questioned by the Public. In that case, this will mean that Apple is seriously targeting specific regions to facilitate the feature. This means that if your location is adequately covered with a good mobile connection, you will probably not benefit from it
At the moment, white zones exist in Kenya (which isn’t nice), but this is not Apple’s priority. Mark Gurman from Bloomberg says that the use of satellites is only meant for emergencies purposes. Therefore it will be only be used in regions where Cellelur connectivity is an issue. It is also possible that Apple is planning to set up its satellite in Space to facilitate this, but if this is true, this kind of technology will take many years to be seen.
Similarly, a satellite connection feature accessible to everyone does not seem to be on Apple’s program at all, neither now nor shortly. In any case, we will know more from September 14 during Apple’s back-to-school keynote.
