[iOS 16.4] iPhone 14 Emergency SOS Via Satellite: List Of Eligible Countries

With the iPhone 14 lineup models, you can use Emergency SOS via Satellite to text emergency services when you’re out of cellular and Wi-Fi coverage. In addition, you can also use the Find My app to share your location with people via satellite. According to the press release, the U.S. tech giant has expanded the iPhone 14’s Emergency SOS via Satellite to six more countries with the iOS 16.4 update.

Besides, the Emergency SOS by Satellite is built on existing features important to iPhone users, including Emergency SOS, Medical Records, Emergency Contacts and ‘My Location‘ sharing on the Find My app, eliminating the need to connect to a satellite to share important information to your family and friends with Emergency SOS.

With the iOS 16.4 update, Apple’s innovative Emergency SOS satellite security service is available to customers in Austria, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Portugal starting March 27, 2023. Meanwhile, we are sharing the list of eligible countries for this feature.

 iOS 16: Emergency SOS Via Satellite – Works

Emergency SOS by satellite and Find My by satellite require iOS 16.4 for users in above mention countries. With iOS 16.4, a user dialling a local emergency number will automatically be redirected to 112, the European emergency number. If the call fails due to no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, it is possible to use emergency SOS via satellite even without dialling 112.
