Tech Bytes

New details on the next iPhone. The iPhone 13 will reportedly feature satellite connectivity, allowing users to make calls or send texts in areas without cell coverage. That’s according to a well-regarded Apple analyst. The new iPhone is expected next month.

Shipments are continuing to soar as they jumped nearly 50% this spring compared to last year. More than 18 million of the devices were shipped in the spring – the hottest sales period since 2018.

Finally, Kanye West’s new album is streaming. After repeated delays, the album titled “Donda,” in honor of the rapper’s late mother, is now on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal. It has 27 tracks and features collaborations with Jay-Z, The Weeknd and others. There’s no album cover art, just a black square.
