IPhone 13 is rumored to support satellite service Globalstar’s share price soared by more than 60% | Anue

In the outgoing promise with Apple (AAPL-US) Cooperated to provide satellite communication technology for iPhone 13, the US satellite communication company Globalstar (GSAT-US) On Monday (30th), the stock price soared by more than 60%.

TFI Securities, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted in a report to investors on Sunday (29th) that Apple remains optimistic about the trend of satellite communications and is likely to support low-orbit satellite communications in the upcoming iPhone. .

Guo Mingchi said that Qualcomm (QCOM-US) The X60 baseband chip can support low-orbit satellite communications. Based on the long cooperation between Qualcomm and Globalstar, Apple’s most likely satellite communications partner is Globalstar.

Guo Mingchi said that there are many possibilities for the business cooperation model between Apple and Globalstar. The simplest case is that if the user’s carrier has already cooperated with Globalstar, the user can directly connect the iPhone 13 to Globalstar’s satellite communication service through the service of the carrier.

Guo Mingchi said that the satellite phone network currently owned by Globalstar is composed of 24 low-orbit satellites. When iPhone 13 users are not within the coverage of 4G/5G signals, they can communicate and send messages through satellites.

If the prediction is accurate, the iPhone 13 will become the first mainstream model to support satellite communications. Ming-Chi Kuo also said that other mobile phone suppliers who want to have satellite communications must wait another year until some point in 2022. , And must use Qualcomm’s upcoming X65 baseband chip.
