The iPhone 14 series is scheduled to be released later this year by Apple. The iPhone 13 series, which was released last year, will be replaced by this lineup. Although Apple is rarely known for disclosing details about forthcoming products, numerous specifications of the upcoming iPhone have already been leaked online. According to a recent claim, the tech behemoth may include a new emergency messaging capability with the iPhone 14. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple iPhone 14 users in remote places may be able to access to satellite networks in an emergency.
According to the source, the device will include a "Emergency message via Contacts" feature that would allow users to send a short message even if cellular coverage is not available. The functionality was previously expected to come with the iPhone 13 series.
Apple's flagship smartphone series is expected to include four variants, similar to the previous two years: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It's unclear whether or not the emergency message feature would be limited to Pro models. The satellite connectivity capability would not be used for activities like browsing the web or streaming video, as previously reported.
Apple is rumoured to be working on a similar functionality for its wristwatch. According to the source, Apple will add satellite connectivity to the Apple Watch, as well as capabilities for emergency SMS and SOS response. At WWDC 2022, the business is preparing to unveil its next-generation operating systems for its gadgets. The date has been set for June 6.
