The Apple iPhone 14 can also call for help without a cellular network by connecting to Globalstar’s satellite network. This relatively new feature has already saved a first life after a man was stranded in Alaska, far from any network.

According to a report by Alaska Department of Public Safety At approximately 2:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 1, Alaska State Troopers were notified that an emergency call had been received using the satellite SOS feature of the iPhone 14 (approx. 960 euros on Amazon) and the iPhone 14 Pro was discontinued.

The emergency call was made by a man who wanted to drive a snowmobile from Noorvik to Kotzebue, but his vehicle has come to a standstill far from any civilisation. The Apple Emergency Response Center has sent the responsible authorities the exact GPS coordinates that the iPhone 14 automatically sends when an emergency call is made. A team of four first responders was then dispatched who were able to locate the stranded man unharmed on the Nimiuk Point peninsula.

As MacRumors reported, first responders were impressed with the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in the initial 911 call. Apple’s 911 system asks the user simple questions, such as the nature of the emergency or possible injuries, to provide the emergency responder with information about the personnel and equipment needed to carry out the rescue operation. Emergency calls via satellite can also be made in Germany in the course of December. Apple allows two-way communication with emergency responders, so people in need can be notified of where emergency responders are currently located.
