Apple Extends Free Access to Emergency SOS Feature for iPhone 14 Users

Apple has announced that iPhone 14 users will continue to have free access to its emergency SOS feature for another year. The emergency SOS feature, initially launched a year ago, allows users to share their location through satellite technology when they are in areas without network coverage. Users can use Apple’s FindMy app to send messages for help to emergency services.
The service has been expanded to include 16 countries and regions after its initial launch in the United States and Canada. This allows iPhone 14 users in these areas to have access to the emergency SOS feature for free.
In addition to this, Apple has also introduced a roadside assistance feature earlier this year. This feature enables iPhone users to connect to the American Automobile Association for help while on the road in the United States.
Furthermore, iPhone 15 users will have two years of free access to the emergency SOS feature. This extended period of free access is made possible through a partnership between Apple and satellite operator Globalstar. With this collaboration, iPhone 15 users can continue to rely on the emergency SOS feature for help during emergency situations.
Apple’s decision to extend the free access to its emergency SOS feature demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing safety and support to its users.
