Apple’s Emergency SOS can get support for more regions

Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro launch on September 16th. While the phones may not offer the biggest updates in terms of specs, they do have some unique features that can save lives. Being able to communicate or access help during an emergency is vital, especially when you are not in the best condition to do so. For this reason, Apple introduced the Emergency SOS feature. It will allow users to contact emergency services using satellite text messages when the phone does not have cellular and Wi-Fi coverage. Although this is a great feature, the service is currently limited to parts of North America. But, apparently, Apple is looking to expand coverage, with new regions likely to get coverage by the end of the year.

according to macprime, a Swiss publication of Apple, Apple will announce other supported countries by the end of this year. Moreover, Apple will also announce more supported countries in 2023. Unfortunately, the source has not been able to get the countries that will get the emergency SOS feature. This should definitely be a welcome feature to support, especially in areas with extreme terrain or conditions. Although the feature is available on all iPhone 14 models, it will not be available for use on the first day. Instead, users will have to wait for Apple to release the iOS 16 software update which is due to arrive sometime in November 2022.

Besides satellite communications, the iPhone 14 lineup will also come with fault detection. This will allow users to contact emergency services when an accident occurs. The process will take place automatically, as the phone uses several of its sensors to detect when a malfunction has occurred. Users will also be able to cancel automated emergency calls if they are okay. Once again, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will make their retail debut on September 16th. You can still pre-order the phones, along with the new Apple Watch and AirPods Pro.
