Rumors give us an inkling that Apple is bringing some satellite capabilities to the iPhone 14.
This latest technology to bring satellite connectivity to the iphone will leverage T-Mobile and SpaceX's Starlink satellites.
What does this technology mean?
This technology will bring an extreme change in the mobile industry by eradicating the "mobile dead zones". This will keep the users connected even without the cell towers which would be most beneficial in emergency situations.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk in a press release while announcing the plan said, "The important thing about this is that it means there are no dead zones anywhere in the world for your cell phone. We're incredibly excited to do this with T-Mobile."

Rumors also say that there are chances that Apple may partner with Globalstar rather the SpaceX.
T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert in a press release in Texas said, "The carrier is yet to start working with other companies on how they will integrate the technology," thus giving us a hint that Apple hasn't made any plans yet.
