This is a cool inclusion. The main highlight however will be the A14 bionic chipset.
This is going to be a great new deal for the iPhone 12 series. With the BeiDou system, the sales of the might see a high especially in the Asia Pacific region.
The integration of the navigation system might lead to a larger sale of the iPhone 12 series
Since iPhone 11 series with U1 chip...it is the most accurate smart device
Hopefully other Apple devices will get this, probably the macs based on Apple Silicon and the new ipads/apple watches
iphone 12 has already been able to make such waves - I am pretty sure it is going to be a solid release.
actually gps sucks, It's precision is bad, As beidou developer said , it's do better in precision.
My three year old Huawei P Smart is compatible with GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou. Looks like Apple still has some catching up to do.
RN, 09 Aug 2020wait, mid 90s!? Looks like I've been lost all this time to not knowing that.yup, China asked access to GPS in 90s to study topography of Kashmir,AKSAI CHIN , and GILJIT BALTISTAN for wartime preparation, but then president bill Clinton ordered US MILITARY to cut Chinese military access to GPS
thus China started to build beidou navigation cluster to prevent embarrassing situation
RN, 09 Aug 2020Impressive.Impressive? Lol SAMSUNG had most of the Satnav system from day one.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2020Is it any good? Can it replace Google Maps?Google has nothing to do with it,
It's your phone's physical gps antenna support.
Google uses wifi, cell location in its support.
Qualcomm Snapdragon has all those GPS types support in SoC itself. But exynos, Meditek , they need extra gps receiver/manager chip , which causes Some OEMs to cheap out and only support some types of gps

.alpha, 09 Aug 2020BeiDou was designed with Asia's hilly terrain in mind therefore BeiDou-3 have 30 satellit... moreThe Navstar System or GPS how everybody is calling it comprises of a 30 satellites system, 4 are in spare.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2020beidou is a China self reliance project after us cut off Chinese access to GPS in mid 90swait, mid 90s!? Looks like I've been lost all this time to not knowing that.
BeiDou was designed with Asia's hilly terrain in mind therefore BeiDou-3 have 30 satellites by design vs GPS' 24 so signal from the satellites comes in at a more vertical angle
KondriX, 09 Aug 2020But is GPS not working in China? beidou is a China self reliance project after us cut off Chinese access to GPS in mid 90s
