There are rumors of extraterrestrial opportunities, Apple just announced the date.
September is the traditional start date for iPhones, so it is safe to say that on the 14th, next Tuesday Series 13 will be in the lead role – then that if not, then we will use the word surprise in the banner.

It is also questionable whether an iPhone with satellite communications capabilities will be able to enter countries like India, China, Russia or Bangladesh, where it is banned on paper – and of course there are those who have been arriving in Apple for years or not. your own satellite system he sees his preparations, though so far primarily SpaceX and OneWeb are building their own beautiful constellations for fast data communication, and Jeff “Who?” Bezos Project Kuiper’s system is also just the music of the future.
