Apple will likely present the iPhone 14 on September 7.
Currently the most exciting information about the device comes again from Bloomberg’s Apple expert Mark Gurman. He delves into Apple’s starry sky chart for inviting “Far Out” to this event in its recent “power-on” column.
Satellite telephony on iPhone 14?
Gurman explains the satellite communications that Apple plans for future iPhones — which could now come for the iPhone 14. iPhone owners can use it to make satellite calls and texts in areas without cell phone reception.
This would be as interesting in dead zones as in emergency situations, for example in the mountains or at sea. These services are currently popular. T-Mobile has just partnered with Elon Musk’s space company SpaceX in the US to provide its customers with satellite communications by 2023.
Also an option for the watch
As a partner, Apple relies on the US company Globalstar, which specializes in satellite phones. Gurman also reports on Apple’s plans to bring satellite communications to its watch as well.
His predictions: “Combining fast 5G networks and satellite services could one day make the iPhone the world’s most powerful communication device.” We’re curious to see if anything will be announced on September 7.
