Apple Reportedly Shelves ‘Walkie-Talkie’ Feature Allowing iPhone-to-iPhone Messaging Without Wi-Fi or Cellular
According to The Information, Apple has just shelved a very interesting Walkie-Talkie App they were developing. The report claims Apple was working with Intel on the project which would let you talk to another iPhone in a place with no cellular coverage over a 900Mhz radio spectrum. This app would be helpful for skiing or hiking, but sadly the guy leading the project has left the company. Intel modems were also part of the app so this is another reason why it was shelved but we hope it comes back with Qualcomm models.
