One of the understated components of Apples iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro is the new U1 chip. It didnt get a prominent callout onstage at todays announcement event, but it will underpin what Apple says are amazing new capabilities coming to iOS devices in the future, including a more accurate, directional version of AirDrop coming with iOS 13.
The U in U1 stands for ultra-wideband, which is the technology Apple is using to power new location tracking features for its smartphones and, hopefully soon, other accessories, too. The U1 chip effectively lets the newest iPhone locate and communicate with other U1 devices in a more accurate and speedy fashion.
