How the iPhone 14 communicates with satellites: using a Qualcomm modem, as well as Apple’s own hardware and software

On Friday, Apple released the iPhone 14 line of smartphones. One of the main new features is the ability to connect to satellites to send emergency messages when not connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network.

Apple previously said that the iPhone 14 models contain new hardware that enables the emergency messaging service, which Apple plans to enable with a software update due in November. Initially, Apple did not provide details on the hardware for the satellites.

iFixit, which takes apart iPhones and other consumer electronics to see how easy they can be repaired, took apart an iPhone 14 Pro Max on Friday to find a Qualcomm X65 modem. The Qualcomm chip provides 5G connectivity for cellular networks, but can also use the so-called n53 band used by Globalstar satellites.

Globalstar earlier this month announced a deal that will see Apple get up to 85% of Globalstar’s satellite network capacity to enable Apple’s new emergency messaging feature. In a statement to Reuters on Saturday, Apple said the iPhone 14 has additional proprietary hardware and software for the new messaging feature.

“iPhone 14 includes customizable RF components and new software entirely developed by Apple, which together provide emergency assistance via satellite on new iPhone 14 models,” Apple said in a statement.

Earlier, Apple confirmed that the iPhone 14 Pro may freeze when transferring data from other smartphones. Various users have reported that the back of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max is particularly prone to scratches. Network insider Ben Geskin shared his opinion about the iPhone 14 Pro. GPS stops working on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max after updating to iOS 16.1.

In addition, it became known why popular applications do not support Dynamic Island in the iPhone 14 Pro.

What will the Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 have in common? New Google will be little different from its predecessor

What will the Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 have in

It seems that the new generation of Pixel smartphones will differ little from the current models. At a minimum, according to recent data, this will affect the younger Pixel 7 model.

What will the Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 have in common?  New Google will be little different from its predecessor

According to insider Yogesh Brar, who at one time provided correct data about the Pixel 6, Pixel 7 will not receive any important differences from its predecessor. It will have the same 8 GB of RAM, the same 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, the same based camera with 50 and 12 MP sensors. The front camera will be new, but it’s an 11-megapixel sensor from the Pixel 6 Pro.

SoC Tensor G2 will also be new, but so far all data indicates that the processor part of this platform will be the same as that of the current Tensor, only with slightly increased frequencies. The screen will retain the resolution and frame rate of 90 Hz, but, unexpectedly, will become a little smaller: 6.3 inches versus 6.4 inches. Apparently, Google heard users and journalists who said that there is not much difference in size between the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and both feel large. True, it is not a fact that reducing the screen will lead to a decrease in size.

As for the battery, its capacity will allegedly be 4700 mAh, which is only slightly more than 4614 mAh for the Pixel 6.

As a result, the situation with the Pixel 7 will be similar to the iPhone 14, when there are very few differences from its predecessor, and there are no serious ones at all.

The queue for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14

Demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max remains strong in the third week after the start of accepting orders, but the waiting time for new smartphones began to gradually decrease.

Worldwide delivery time after ordering the standard version of the iPhone 14 on the official Apple website is still 3 days, as it was originally. The average estimated delivery time for the iPhone 14 Pro worldwide has been reduced from 35 days to 31 days, and the delivery time for the iPhone 14 Pro Max has been reduced from 41 to 39 days.

In major markets such as the US and China, the estimated delivery time after pre-ordering iPhone 14 Pro is still over 30 days, and iPhone 14 Pro Max is over 35 days.

Also confirms that demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max was higher than for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max series in the third week of booking, but the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are not as actively ordered as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini a year earlier.

As previously reported, Chinese consumers bought fewer iPhone 14 series smartphones at the launch of the new lineup than they bought iPhone 13 smartphones in the same period last year. In the first three days after the launch in China, Apple sold 987,000 iPhone 14 smartphones, which 11% less than the iPhone 13 series smartphones sold last year.

In Chinese social networks, reviews of iPhone 14 Pro smartphone users are circulating, who complain about the rapid obsolescence of the appearance of the latest flagship. The matte finish peels off quickly. Apple has already begun production of iPhone 14 smartphones in India – less than three weeks after the presentation.

In terms of its parameters, Zero Ultra 5G will not be able to compete with full-fledged flagships. For example, it will be based on the SoC Dimensity 920, which, although very productive, still belongs only to the middle segment. Also, the device will receive 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of flash memory, a 32-megapixel front camera, and early data also indicate 180-watt charging.
