We all know about Apple’s special secret team that works on secret projects. The Secret Team is working with the latest technologies to manufacture new products and services for the consumers. In the past, we have seen that the company has introduced Apple Cas, Apple HR Headphones and more.
Today, we have come across to know that the company is secretly working on a new Satellite Technology. According to Bloomberg’s report, the company is working on this new technology for its future iPhones. According to reports, the new Satellite Technology will provide direct Wireless data transmission to iPhones.
Furthermore, the reports add that the company has hired over a dozen engineers from across the globe who have great experience in aerospace, antenna design and satellite.
Apart from the engineers, the company has also hired a team of hardware and software designers to design the new Satellite-based products for future Apple devices. The company is currently searching for more engineers who will work on new communication products that the team is currently working on.
At presently, Apple’s secret team is currently led by Michael Trela and John Fenwick. Both of them are former aerospace engineers. They were working for Google and left the company for Apple in the year 2017.
On this secret project, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has reportedly marked this project on high priority. Well, we have to accept the fact that the new communication product from Apple is still in its early stage.
In a nutshell, Apple will not design or build its own hardware products, but instead, they will come up with transmission devices or ground-based equipment that will work together for data transmissions for orbital communications equipment. The same technology could be used by Apple for their future iPhones to provide direct Internet access through the Satellite connection.
Or they will interact with the cellphone carrier data network to provide Internet connectivity at even cheaper rates. Apart from Internet services, Satellite technology will improve the location services for better maps and guidances for the regular users of Apple Maps.
