Apple has successfully tested the satellite connection of the iPhone 14, hardware support is ready. Now it all depends on the partners

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has indeed worked on satellite communications for the iPhone 14 and has completed hardware tests for the feature ahead of mass production of smartphones.

He confirmed that the smartphones have hardware support for satellite communications, but whether the iPhone 14 will support satellite communications depends on “whether Apple and carriers can agree on a business model.” The iPhone 13 also has satellite hardware, but connectivity was not implemented because “the business model was not agreed upon.”

It’s hard to predict when the iPhone will offer satellite service, Kuo said, but it’s expected to happen “eventually.” Satellite communications are expected to be used for emergency text messages and voice services. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that iPhone users will be able to use satellite communications to report emergencies to authorities in areas without cell service and send short messages to contacts in case of an emergency.

Rumor has it that Apple is working with Globalstar. Kuo confirms this rumor. Satellite communications consultant Tim Ferrar also said on Friday that he expects Apple and Globalstar to launch a satellite communications feature for the iPhone 14.

Last week, T-Mobile and SpaceX announced plans to bring 5G smartphone connectivity anywhere in the United States using a satellite-to-cellular service.

The exact cost of Redmi A1 + is not called, but the source logically explains that the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner in the design will have a minimal impact on the price. If Redmi A1 is priced at 100 euros, then Redmi A1 + will be slightly more expensive than 100 euros (or $ 100).

Don’t need Dynamic Island? Popular apps are in no hurry to adapt to the iPhone 14 Pro

Dont need Dynamic Island Popular apps are in no hurry

The iPhone 14 Pro, which received the Dynamic Island interactive area in the front camera area, was introduced more than two weeks ago and released at the end of last week, but so far third-party developers are in no hurry to use Dynamic Island.

It was expected that Dynamic Island would initially only work with Apple applications, and developers would start releasing updates to their applications to adapt them to Dynamic Island.

Even before the launch, there was a lot of discussion about the fact that hugely popular apps in China, including WeChat and Tencent Video, are not optimized for use with Dynamic Island. WeChat notification pop-ups do not appear in the Dynamic Island interactive area, but simply under this notch, which does not respond to the application in any way.

Don't need Dynamic Island?  Popular apps are in no hurry to adapt to the iPhone 14 Pro

WeChat update 8.0.29 for iOS was released yesterday, which fixed some compatibility issues on iPhone 14 series smartphones. However, there was no adaptation to Dynamic Island. Messages continue to appear under the notch. Other apps in China have also been updated but not supported.

Mydrivers writes that Apple has not yet opened the Dynamic Island Application Programming Interface (API) to third-party developers. For the first time this became known a few days ago.

It is worth adding that after the release of almost every new generation of iPhone, we are seeing a similar situation. At first, many shout “everything is gone”, “no innovations”, “a lot of bugs”, but in the end the problems are quickly resolved, and there are more than 100 million owners of new Apple smartphones in the world.
