With regard to the delays, Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman says Apple has told retail employees "not to speculate why to consumers." Gurman adds: "Any guesses why?"

Gurman is alluding to rumors that Apple is near to launching a ninth-generation low-cost a 10.5-inch ‌iPad‌ with an updated A-series chip. The display size is expected to remain the same at 10.2 inches, but it is said to be thinner at 6.3mm, with a lighter overall design.

The tablet is rumored to include 4GB RAM with a Touch ID Home button and Lightning port. As with past versions of the ‌iPad‌, it will be aimed at students and those looking for an affordable tablet option.

Apple is also rumored to be working on a redesigned iPad mini, but that device is not expected to feature at next week's event. Apple is expected to hold multiple events in the remainder of this year, so we could see it in October or November instead.

iPhone 13 will come with satellite capabilities. What does it mean, and why should you care?

If there’s any validity to Ming-Chi Kuo’s claim, it would mean that Apple will include capable hardware in the iPhone 13. It’s currently thought that the iPhone 13 is already set to use a Qualcomm X60 baseband chip. Coincidentally (or perhaps not so coincidentally), the X60 chip supports the ability to communicate with low-Earth orbiting satellites. With companies like SpaceX planning to bring nascent broadband via Starlink satellites, this could be particularly efficacious in the very near future.

So what does satellite connectivity mean for you as the consumer and user of the iPhone? Is it a fancy and frivolous feature or a handy and helpful one? Well, it just might be the latter. We all experience situations where we don’t have access to a wireless network, and our 4G/5G coverage simply isn’t there. Satellite connectivity would provide an alternative method to gain service as a backup or primary option.

For example, say you’re traveling through a rural area with broad areas of dead zones. Now, as bad luck can strike in the worst of places, your vehicle breaks down. Without cellular service, you’d be stuck until someone comes along who can help you. However, with satellite connectivity, you have another chance to call for assistance. This is just one scenario in which the feature would be useful. Undoubtedly, there are others worth considering as well.

While new features pop up all the time across the smartphone market, some are undeniably gimmicky. This one is undeniably beneficial if pulled off. Granted, the feature is only a rumor, and we probably shouldn’t get too excited; regardless, it’s still worth hoping for.

Many have experienced situations that range from mere inconveniences to dire circumstances. Sometimes not being able to connect to emergency services can have terrible consequences. So a feature like this is something to be celebrated, not overlooked. After all, despite the other wonderful uses, a smartphone is still a phone at its core. If it doesn’t work when you need it, it kind of defeats the purpose.

What do you think about the possibility of iPhone 13 satellite capabilities? Let us know in the comments below!

iPhone 13 rumors — the 5 features we're looking forward to most

Tom's Guide 07 September, 2021 - 01:40pm

iPhone 13 rumors abound, but we hope these five features make the grade

Judging by the rumors that have been swirling around the iPhone 13 for the better part of this year, there will be some noteworthy changes coming to Apple’s phone. There’s the usual array of expected changes like processor improvements and camera enhancements, but Apple could have a few other features in mind, particularly for its iPhone 13 Pro models.

We’ve been on top of these rumors all year long, from displays with a faster refresh rate to possible improvements to Face ID unlocking. Here are the ones that have the staff of Tom’s Guide excited, as we count down the days until Sept. 14, when the iPhone 13 will get its moment in the spotlight.

Combined with the 120Hz touch sampling rate the iPhone 12 already has, we could see the next iPhone sport a screen that feels very slick to use. If not then I'm afraid my interest in the iPhone 13 will wither on the vine very quickly. —Roland Moore-Colyer 

For example, the iPhone 13 mini is rumored to pack a 2,406 mAh battery, up from 2,227 mAh on the 12 mini. The regular iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro would both go from 2,815 to 3,095 mAh, as they should have the same size display. The iPhone 13 Pro Max battery could get a boost from 3,687 mAh to 4,352 mAh. So the iPhone 13 Pro Max should make our best phone battery life list, but we’re hoping for more. —Mark Spoonauer

As an Apple Watch owner, I'm not going to get as much of a benefit from this feature (though it will probably make the functionality work better, as there’s always the occasional error). I'm mostly excited for this out of want for everyone to have the same perk that I do. Not only will it be convenient to be able to use Face ID even with a face mask on, but it could encourage people to stay masked up, which (if it works) could be the best overall effect to come out of the whole new iPhone. —Henry T. Casey

I do a lot of hiking, and my family makes it a point to try and visit one National Park every year. There’s a lot of benefits to spending time in these remote locations — the sweeping vistas, the gorgeous sights only found in nature, the clean air and quiet surroundings. But the chief drawback is that in most of these pristine places, the cellular reception stinks.

I’m not talking about being able to check my email or post bucolic photos to Twitter or find out the score of the ballgame I’m missing while I’m out in nature. I’m talking about being able to contact someone in case something goes horribly wrong and we need medical care or some other emergency assistance. There’s only so much that first-aid kit my wife carries around everywhere can tackle.

From the sound of things, the hardware will certainly be in place with the iPhone 13, even if the software component won’t be ready until next year. Nevertheless, anything Apple can do to make my iPhone a lifeline when I hike beyond cellular’s reach will be a welcome addition.—Philip Michales
