iPhone 13: Apple cuts hammer feature

iPhone 13: Apple cuts hammer feature

A rumor recently caused a lot of uproar. So the iPhone 13 would actually have what it takes to be a satellite phone. Or is it not? Apple expert Mark Gurman now reveals: The hammer feature is cut by Apple and is therefore only available to a limited extent.

The iPhone 13 a satellite phone? The basic technology should already be in the iPhone 13, according to a report. But now we know that the supposed killer feature is being implemented in a more restricted way than previously thought. Bloomberg reporter and Apple insider Mark Gurman once again provides clarity in his weekly newsletter (source: Mark Gurman via 9to5mac).

iPhone 13 not a real satellite phone: Apple is cutting back on functionality

The iPhone 13 will not be a real satellite phone, because the function is actually only intended for emergencies. The users do not have a free choice, because the feature will only be available if there is actually no mobile radio signal and only in certain markets . Ergo: Not all countries are covered - we also know from other Apple functions.

Ultimately understandable, anything else would exceed the costs, or would cause trouble for the mobile phone providers, after all, they don't want any "extraterrestrial" competition. According to Gurman, Apple is pursuing two approaches at the same time:

Sending short emergency texts to close friends Sending SOS emergency signals in the event of crises such as plane crashes etc. in remote areas

If our readers were to design the next iPhone, the smartphone seen in the video would come out:

What exactly is Apple planning?

Such emergency messages would be differently colored in iMessage from the rest - gray instead of blue and green. Emergency telephone calls may also be supported, but this is probably not yet certain. On the other hand, safe: for the feature to work, you need a clear view of the sky, i.e. a connection can only be established outside. This can then take up to a minute.

Apple will present the iPhone 13 to the public on September 14th, and the associated special event was recently announced. It remains unclear whether the manufacturer will show the satellite feature now. Background: Apple may need more time and may not introduce the feature until later next year.
