Rumors of satellite communication coming to the iPhone have resurfaced, along with a new claim that Apple Watch could get this ability too.

Now Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg journalist, claims that the feature is coming to the 2022 or 2023 Apple Watch and iPhone.

“Whether it’s on the iPhone or Apple Watch,” wrote Gurman in his “Power On” newsletter, “the technology would provide an alternative to the Garmin inReach Explorer and SPOT, handheld satellite communicators with similar features.”

The Garmin and SPOT satellite devices are small handheld devices, but the technology would have to be considerably reduced in size to fit the Apple Watch. The existing devices also require stubby and short but prominent aerials.

Plus, of course, they would need satellites to transmit and receive, but Marke believes Apple is working on this.

“There have been signs lately that Apple and its apparent satellite partner Globalstar Inc. might be getting closer to launching such a feature,” he continued. “In February, Globalstar said it reached an agreement to buy 17 new satellites to help power ‘continuous satellite services’ for a ‘potential — and unnamed — customer that had paid it hundreds of millions of dollars.”

Separately, Mark Gurman also predicted an M3 iMac Pro coming in 2023.

Stay tuned for further updates.
