New iPhone will be equid with stronger GPS receiver
New iPhone can navigate within buildings better
The new iPhone will be better able to get an accurate GPS signal within buildings to navigate, according to information from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Monday.
Apple would switch to a new antenna technology for the iPhone. The tech giant is currently using liquid-crystal polymer antennas, but the new iPhone opts for a modified PI antenna.
The new antenna technology should prevent certain interference, giving the iPhone a better signal with certain signals at a higher frequency.
In practice, the new technology must ensure that a GPS signal can be received more easily within buildings during navigation. This gives a better picture of locations.
The question is whether Apple will use the improved technology to add navigation data for inside large buildings to Apple Maps.
Apple is expected to announce the new iPhones in September 2019. There would be three cameras on the back of the devices. Just like last year, three models are planned. Apple has not yet responded to the rumors.
