One of the most important innovations in the iPhone 14 was Emergency SOS. This service allows you to send messages by satellite to emergency services to anyone who is in danger outside of cellular coverage. Today, this feature was activated. Apple hopes it will not be used very often, but in the event, the company invited owners of the iPhone 14 series, to familiarize themselves about its operation.
After updating all four models of the iPhone 14 to the latest iOS version, the Emergency SOS demo mode is available. Demo mode allows the user to connect to the server and not the satellite operator or the actual operator of the emergency call centre. Instead, it allows the user to send pre-set responses to their requests.
According to Engadget, the journalist for Engadget Resource said that he participated in an Apple-organized demonstration last week. The company representatives showed how the iPhone establishes contact with satellites. They also demonstrated how long it takes to communicate with employees at call centers. Also, it is advisable to describe the problem clearly. Data transfer is slower than when working on a cell network.
Users in Canada and the US already have access to the Emergency SOS function as well as its demo mode. The service will also be available in the UK, France, Germany and Ireland in December.
