“Apple Also Wanted A Walkie-Talkie Function For IPhones”
“Apple also Wanted a Walkie-Talkie function for IPhones.” Apple planned to provide the iPhone with a walkie-talkie function.
The feature is supposed to be for areas with inadequate telephone coverage,
but the project is currently standing still.
According to the reports, Apple has temporarily put an ambitious plan to enable communication in remote areas on the shelf.
Apple was working with Intel to develop technology to send short voice messages to other iPhones over the 900 MHz frequency,
two anonymous sources say to the site.
Why the project is standing still is not known,
but could have to do with the departed CEO Rubén Caballero.
However, the sources say that the functionality can still appear in future iPhones.
It could also be linked to the fact that Apple purchased the modem division from Intel in July for 1 billion dollars.
The company also renewed its cooperation with the major chipmaker Qualcomm after years of legal proceedings.
