The iPhone 14’s Satellite SOS Is Already Saving People
Justin Duino / How-To Geek
If there’s one thing that’s tremendously useful about the iPhone 14 lineup, in spite of some of its limitations, it’s got to be Emergency SOS via Satellite. It allows you to get help in situations where you normally can’t because of a lack of cell signal. Now, it has started saving lives.
There was an incident in the Angeles National Forest in California where a car went off the side of the mountain, falling 300 feet into a remote canyon. Luckily, one of the people in the car had an iPhone 14, which is what ultimately saved their lives. There was no cell signal at all, but the person was able to connect to one of Apple’s relay centers and request assistance.
