New Delhi. With the launch of the iPhone 14 series in September 2022, American tech giant Apple introduced a special safety service feature called ‘Emergency SOS via satellite’ for the iPhone 14 models. Now a new report has claimed that this tremendous feature saved the life of a person trapped in Alaska, America.

Currently the SOS Via Satellite feature is available in North America and the company will soon expand to France, Germany, Ireland and the UK.

According to MacRumors, Alaska State Troopers received an alert on December 1 that a person traveling on a snow machine from Noorvik to Kotzebue was trapped. In a place with no connectivity, the man activated ‘Emergency SOS via satellite’ on his iPhone 14 to alert authorities about his situation.

Apple’s Emergency Response Center dispatches volunteer searchers in cooperation with local search and rescue teams. According to reports, the man was successfully rescued and sustained no injuries. He was located in a remote area with limited satellite coverage. Apple says that Noorvik to Kotzebue is closer to 69Ao latitude. Satellite connectivity may not be available in places above 62Ao latitude, such as in the northern part of Canada and Alaska.
