iPhone 14’s Emergency SOS feature saved two lives

Apple provides emergency SOS via satellite facility with the iPhone 14. This feature allows users to make an emergency contact to get help when they are out of network coverage.

How to turn off SOS on iPhone

This may not be helpful to many users, but it is a life saver. A helicopter rescue was recently conducted in California when an iPhone 14 user sent an emergency SOS via satellite.

This would be the first helicopter rescue for a satellite SOS text from the iPhone 14.

According to reports, a car fell into a remote ravine while driving on the Angeles Forest Highway in the Angeles National Forest. When iPhone 14 detected the nearly 300-foot crash, it sent an emergency SOS to rescuers via satellite link.

Within minutes, a rescue helicopter reached the site and saved the lives of two people.

Here, iPhone 14 sent an SOS text message to Apple via satellite and then forwarded it to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Everything happened quickly and the two were taken to a local hospital to treat their injuries. Emergency SOS via satellite on the iPhone 14 series was only available in the US until now. From December 13, 2022, the service will be available in the UK, Ireland, France and Germany.
