According to how Apple holds their schedule we might just be weeks away from seeing a new iPhone device. We have been getting a lot of leaks of what the iPhone 13 could do when it comes out, here is a very fun one. Ming-chi Kuo is claiming that the iPhone 13 will not only make calls but it might be able to make satellite calls according to MacRumours.
If this is true it is going to be one of the best features of this device. Apple analyst Kuo has claimed that the iPhone 13 devices will be able to connect directly to LEO satellites that are in low earth’s orbit thanks to the Qualcomm x60 baseband chipset it has. LEO satellites are mainly used for internet because they are closer to earth, which is more preferred than higher orbit satellites.
This will certainly be an advantage for the iPhone 13 because satellite phones allow you to make calls even where there are no cell services. This is made possible because the device is not limited to areas covered by cell towers.
If anything we are expected to get four models of the iPhone 13 as well. Which are the iPhone 13 ProMax, the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 mini. The main chipset of the iPhone 13 is expected to be an A15 bionic chipset that is designed similar to the iPhone 12 series.
