How to Use the Emergency SOS via Satellite Service


Emergency SOS via satellite service, a new feature from Apple, is now available in the United States and Canada (as of November 15). Lately, it will be available in France, Germany, Ireland, and the UK in December. When there is no cellular network or Wi-Fi connection, you can now use this satellite service (for iPhone 14 users) to contact emergency services. So here, I’ll show you how to use the Emergency SOS via satellite service. Let’s see how to do this.

Use the Emergency SOS via Satellite Service in the Demo:

Now you can use the demo satellite service feature on your iPhone 14. It will help you to operate if you're in a real emergency situation. So let’s see how to use this feature. In this demo, your cellular service will be automatically turned off. For that 

  • Launch Settings on your iPhone.
  • Then scroll down and find “Emergency SOS.”
  • Under Emergency SOS via Satellite, select Try demo.
  • Now tap on the Next option from the “About satellite connections” and “Answering emergency questions” screen.
  • Select the Test Satellite Connection option.
  • From the pop-up, select the Turn Off option to disable your cellular service.
  • Okay, now you have to move your iPhone to a clear sky to get a satellite connection.
  • It’ll assist you while you’re moving your hand.

  • Once the satellite is connected, it’ll take you to the next page to communicate with emergency services.
  • Now just have a demo conversation with emergency services.
  • If you've done your demo, tap on the End button at the top to end the service.
  • That’s it. This is the same way to use this satellite emergency SOS on your iPhone 14.

Note: Keep your iPhone facing a particular direction to stay connected with the satellite.

How to Use Emergency Satellite Service in Real Time:

  • Open the Phone app on your iPhone 14.
  • And dial the emergency number (in the United States, 911).
  • Now the call failed automatically because of the no signal.
  • Right now, you have to choose the emergency text via satellite.
  • In addition, follow the onscreen instructions to contact emergency services.

This will be extremely useful if you are in a mountainous or densely forested area.
