iPhone 13 includes a Qualcomm X60 baseband modem chip, which includes LEO satellite comms capabilities. If accurate, this means that the upcoming iPhone will have the hardware capability to act as a satellite phone. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the company will choose to support it in software.
Not sure the intention.
But this can compete with the sat phone segment that seems very traditional and outdated interms of OS & apps.
I don’t understand why, how and where this solution will work.
It would mostly be a marketing strategy.
A marketing campaign.
