Does This Little-Known iPhone Chip Confirm Apple-Fi?
Could your existing iPhone already be set up for Apple-Fi and just be waiting for a signal from space?
Earlier this year, a small space startup called Lynk used a satellite to send text messages to an unmodified Android phone.
Lynk was able to support a slow connection to the International Space Station using standard hardware you might find in any current smartphone.
So what about Apple? What if Apple already quietly added a capacity not for slow but for fast broadband from space to its existing phones?
The iPhone 11, released last year, supports a new frequency known as Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).
The CBRS standard allows for people to create the equivalent of a private LTE cellphone network. Wireless telcos could also use it as part of 5G. CBRS is billed as faster than Wi-Fi, a fast frequency capable of enabling broadband-like speeds between 100Mbps–1Gbps.
And it makes you wonder what they’re up to…
Here at Technology Profits Daily you may have heard us use the word “Apple-Fi.”
Apple-Fi is our prediction that Apple will create its own internet for its customers.
And subsequently circumvent big telecom companies like AT&T or Verizon.
Enabling CBRS in the iPhone 11 is a huge step to support this theory.
Their next step is to either develop their own satellite internet or pair up with a company — like SpaceX with its Starlink program or OneWeb — that hopes to provide global high-speed satellite internet.
Apple already has a huge user base: 42% of the United States’ smartphones users use iPhones.
And in 2019, Apple sold over 200 million iPhones worldwide.
Of course Apple likes selling iPhones, but what if they could offer service as well?
This could flip the entire industry on its head.
It’s insane to think that the iPhone could have internet capabilities without the use of a satellite dish or a cell tower… but directly to from the satellite to your phone.
And it’s hard to tell exactly how they’re going to pull this off.
But whatever’s going to happen it will shock the world when it’s revealed.
To a bright future,
