Emergency SOS via satellite coming to iPhone 14 this month — what you need to know

Emergency SOS via satellite was one of the more noteworthy announcements from Apple’s iPhone 14 launch event in September. This iPhone 14 feature takes Apple’s existing Emergency SOS feature and expands its reach beyond on cell towers by allowing users to contact emergency services over satellite.

Now we know when this feature is going live. Apple announced today (November 10) that Emergency SOS via satellite will launch later this month for U.S. and Canadian users. The feature requires an iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro model — older iPhones don’t have the necessary hardware.
