iPhone 13 is a big surprise
IPhone leaks tell about Apple’s most exciting upgrades.
New information has now revealed one more upgrade ahead of its release and it’s a big surprise.
According to Forbes, the News comes in two parts from two of the most influential Apple insiders.
Acclaimed Apple analyst, Ming Chi-Kuo has revealed the iPhone 13 range will have a low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellite communication mode.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has confirmed this, but added important caveats.
Despite these limitations, this is still exciting news.
The Apple Watch has received a lot of praise for life saving interventions it has made on behalf of its owners, and the iPhone 13 looks set to follow in its footsteps. It’s a value feature, a major differentiator and a great source of positive media coverage.
For this to emerge so close to launch is also a major surprise. We have known about Apple’s biggest iPhone 13 upgrades for some time: supersized new cameras, larger batteries, faster charging, next gen WiFi and a smaller notch. For iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max buyers, there will also be global 5G mmwave support, 120Hz ProMotion displays and (potentially) twice the storage.
That said, emergency satellite communication is going to take people’s breath away and likely signal a mass (and welcome) shift from rivals to adopt the same technology. With the iPhone 13 release date near, for many users this may also justify the range’s last minute price rises.
