An earlier rumour had it that the Apple iPhone 13 would have satellite connectivity. Now, however, we expect that the iPhone 14 series will also include this technology for SOS or emergency purposes. It is possible that the next Apple Watch will also have this technology. Satellite connectivity allows users to send text messages to emergency contact even if they don’t have cellular coverage.
Satellite connectivity will be the next feature of Apple Watch
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who published the newsletter Power On, stated that “the next Apple Watch will get this functionality.” It could be released in the current year, or even 2023 according to Gurman. It is probable that Apple will launch at least three smartwatches this year, and satellite connectivity may be included in at least one.
According to his statement, there have been indications lately that Apple’s apparent satellite partner Globalstar Inc. may be closer to the launch of such a feature. Globalstar announced in February that it had reached an agreement with Globalstar to purchase 17 satellites for powering ‘continuous satellite service’ to a potential customer (unnamed) who has paid hundreds of millions.
Apple will launch 3 Apple Watch models in 2013: the standard Apple Watch, an SE and a rugged model that can be used for extreme sports. Satellite connectivity is likely to be available on the rugged and standard models.
According to an older report, the Apple iPhone 14 will have this feature this year. The “Emergency message via contacts” feature will be available. This would enable users to quickly send text messages to emergency service personnel and contact over satellite networks when there’s no cellular coverage. Gray bubbles would be used to indicate the new protocol in the Messages app.
The rumoured addition of satellite connectivity to the Apple Watch will be a highlight of the smartwatch.
