iPhone 14 could add satellite connectivity – but there’s one last hurdle to clear

Long rumored to be coming to Apple’s iPhone, satellite connectivity could make its debut alongside the iPhone 14 next month. And the only thing standing in the way of this feature is Apple hammering out an agreement with a satellite partner between now and the Apple September 7 event.

That’s the word from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who outlined the state of play for iPhone satellite connectivity in both a Twitter post (opens in new tab) and an article appearing on Medium (opens in new tab). And given Kuo’s reputation – he’s known for tapping into some pretty reliable sources in Apple’s supply chain – it’s worth paying attention to this rumor, even if it is something we’ve been hearing for the better part of a year.
