iPhone 14 proved itself with the one trick Apple advertised the most. In September 2022, Apple announced the iPhone 14 series with a brand new Emergency SOS feature, promising easy rescue in tricky areas. Many were skeptical about the feature and suggested it wasn’t enough to warrant an upgrade from the iPhone 13. However, an iPhone 14 user in Alaska just proved why everyone should buy an iPhone 14, especially those who travel to the wilderness.

In a new report from MacRumours, an incident shows how the iPhone 14’s satellite connectivity feature can be of great use in emergency situations. On December 1, the Alaska State Troopers received an SOS alert from a man trapped in the cold wilderness when his snow machine failed and left him stranded. He was on his way from Noorvik to Kotzebue. In the cold remote location, his iPhone 14 came to the rescue.

The man used the Emergency SOS via satellite feature on his iPhone 14 to send an alert to local authorities. After the alert was sent, the Apple Emergency Response Center worked with local search and rescue teams and sent GPS coordinates to the Northwest Arctic Borough Search and Rescue Coordinator’s volunteer searchers. The GPS coordinates were shared by the iPhone 14 itself.

The man was eventually rescued with injuries. In addition, the satellite connection feature on the iPhone 14 had worked in an area where it was not intended. Apple said it may not work in areas above 62 degrees latitude, but the area between Noorvik and Kotzebue was 69 degrees latitude.

The rescuers were also impressed with the accuracy of the alert’s data. Moreover, the feature also asks the user to provide information in terms of Q&A to help the rescuers better.

The iPhone 14 series gets the satellite SOS feature as standard and it was only recently activated with the iOS 16.1 update. The feature is currently free to use and will remain so for two years before Apple starts charging a fee for the service. Please note that the feature is only available in certain countries and Indian users cannot use it.
