iPhone 6, iOS 7 w/ satellite phone?
When I go offshore, I pair my iphone 4s with Delorme inreach, would be nice if the next release iphone 6? is capable of satellite transmit even in simplex data only.
Do you think its possible?

Anything is possible, but if you consider the nearly zero demand, I think you'll conclude that it won't happen any time soon.

You'll have, I'm sure, no reason to complain."

The cost for text messaging by satellite is cheap these days, paying less than at@t cell data plan and its in the iridium network, pole to pole. There is also a lower cost Globalstar Spot connect, around 9 bucks.
It pairs up with your iphone by bluetooth, though somewhat clunky to set up but when u get the hang of it, its better than a 406 plb.
When was the last time you went fishing, hiking, climbing and there was no cell coverage, what u gonna do when TSHTF?

an interesting idea, if apple could integrate the satellite phone within the same enclosure without sacrificing battery life and other features.. sure why not...
apple included GLONASS plus GPS in the 4S - 5, but I doubt it is something apple would invest their time with unless the technology & price is mature enough to use
