LEO satellites rely on satellites that are in lower orbits that are known to beam the Internet. One of the most famous users of these satellites is Starlink – Elon Musk’s satellite internet service. Apple started its LEO SATELLITE X IPHONE implementation in 2019. Bloomberg first reported on Apple’s investigation into using satellite technology to beam data to iPhones in a 2019 report. However, this is the first time this feature is being offered, and that too in the 2021 iPhone 13 lineup. Also Read - iPhone 13 Review: Features, Camera Specifications, Price, Worth Buying or Not?

The iPhone 13 may have LEO satellite communication mode as analyst Kuo says they will come with Qualcomm’s X60 baseband chip. This will allow iPhone 13 users to make phone calls and send messages even if they don’t have any 4G or 5G cellular coverage. Kuo said network operators would have to work with Globalstar, a US-based satellite communications company, to provide LEO connectivity to users. In other words, a telecom operator can use Globalstar’s satellite service on iPhone 13 to give users the ability to use this feature. The analyst further said that Apple is optimistic about satellite communications technology. The Cupertino-based tech giant recently set up a team to research and develop LEO-related technology.
