it's an iPhone 13 rumor. Mostly that the radio will include Satellite phone frequencies. But antenna and accounts and whatnot are another issue entirely. Connecting to an antenna in LEO (low earth orbit) is hard. Connecting to an antenna in GEO (geosynchronous eart orbit) is WAY hard.

I don't expect to be a functional feature without a magsafe adder module.

It may have hardware that will support the ability to connect to low orbit satellite if the carrier supports it when there isn't a cell signal available. There is no indication that Apple will enable it or if any carriers will support it.

‘ According to Bloomberg, when Apple does implement satellite connectivity, it will be limited to "crisis scenarios" and will not be an alternative to cellular networks that allows for widespread texting and calling. ‘

So I can use it to call 911 when the McDo drivethru messes up my order?
