The LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellite communication system, which is expected to be launched on the iPhone 13, will only be available in certain markets. The information was published this Sunday by Bloomberg (5). The feature is expected to work “only in areas with no cellular coverage,” and Apple is still considering deploying “its own set of satellites” in the future.
Since the end of August, expectations about the arrival of the drug have been increasing. The initial speculation was that the cell phone would in fact make calls even in areas with no coverage. However, with new details emerging, it has been said that the feature should only work on emergency calls.
Apple could also integrate its own satellite emergency messaging service, according to the new report. For example, users can use the Messages app to contact emergency services or contacts nearby, even if there is no mobile signal nearby.
In addition, the publication points out that the Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be announced with the iPhone 13, but that the watch has production problems. So, despite maintaining the announcement date, Apple may limit the number of watches available on the market. The announcement event of the new iPhone 13 line is expected to take place later in September.
