Here's a closer look at the iPhone 14 Emergency SOS via Satellite feature available today. US and Canada starting today, with more countries coming later next month. Along with the announcement, Apple has also given select YouTubers and media outlets early access to the feature, offering a closer look at how it works.
The service will be free for the first two years, but Apple hasn't said what's next. To help users understand how it works, Apple has created a demo mode that allows users to try out the feature and its interface without activating it or contacting emergency services. Below we've added some videos detailing the demo mode and how this feature works.

The message sent to emergency services includes the user's location, including height above sea level, iPhone battery level, and his medical record, if he has one. Messages are sent directly to dispatchers or sent to an Apple-trained center who can call emergency services on the user's behalf. Read more about this feature in our guide.
