In the early hours of this morning, after the autumn new product launch, Apple updated the price and parameters of the Bank of China iPhone 12 series on its official website. Although not mentioned at the press conference, some careful netizens found that the iPhone 12 series will support five types of navigation satellites: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and Beidou satellite.
Beidou satellite navigation system can provide global users with all-weather, all-weather, high-precision positioning services, navigation services and timing services. Today, Beidou Navigation System (BDS), US Global Positioning System (GPS), Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) and EU Galileo Positioning System (Galileo) have been recognized by the United Nations Satellite Navigation Commission as the four core suppliers of global satellite navigation systems.
As early as July this year, analysts reported that the Intel baseband adopted by Apple in recent generations all support Beidou satellite navigation, but due to performance problems when using Beidou signals, they finally chose to shield Beidou signals.
