Emergency SOS via satellite is a great safety feature on the iPhone 14. Apple has gone to great lengths to ensure that their emergency SOS feature is fully functional. The only area it won’t be available in is the satellite regions.
Apple’s iPhone 14 is not without its faults. If you buy an iPhone 14 in any of these regions such as China Mainland, Hong Kong, or Macao, be warned that your phone will not have the same quality equipment to connect to the satellite. Which means you won’t be able to access Emergency SOS via satellite if suffering a medical emergency.
Satellite SOS is only available in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands,while it will also be unavailable in Guam or American Samoa. For further details you visit the company support page.What is emergency SOS via satellite?
