Apple iPhone 14 to have satellite connectivity for emergency situations
Apple is planning to include satellite connectivity for emergency situations in iPhone 14, which the tech giant is expected to launch in June this year.
Although, Apple is known for not revealing the features of its new phones prior to their launch, this specific feature of the new iPhone has been leaked online.
According to reports, users would be able to send text messages or SOS responses via a satellite network to report on accidents, even without cellular network.
The new iPhone would include an “Emergency Message via Contacts” for sending short messages in areas that do not have cellular signals, according to reports.
Recently, the tech website reported that it is working on a similar satellite feature for the Apple Watch as well.
“The primary reason for the inclusion of this system is to allow users to send messages or reach out to emergency services in cases of an actual emergency,” the report said.
Earlier, Apple’s iPhone 13 was expected to debut with this feature, but it was ultimately shelved.
