Summary

Apple’s iPhone 13 will feature satellite communication connectivity that will allow users to make calls and send texts in areas without cellular coverage, according to a note from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The forthcoming handset will include hardware that allows it to tap low Earth orbit satellites, allowing it to stay connected in areas that lack 4G or 5G coverage, Kuo told investors in a note seen by MacRumors. The iPhone 13 is expected to use Qualcomm X60 baseband chip, which reportedly supports satellite communications.
